Danielle West (MBACP)
Life is often unpredictable and challenging for us all, sometimes becoming overwhelming and difficult to navigate through. Looking for a counsellor that ‘fits’ and can provide the space you need is an extremely daunting task in itself. However, finding the right one for you can be a turning point and enable you to see some light.
I am a practising counsellor, primarily based in Wetherby. I am committed to providing you with a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where we can work in collaboration to help you understand and overcome the barriers you face.
I have many years experience supporting people with learning disabilities and their families along with anxiety, stress, depression and bereavement. I believe the key to effective collaboration is a trusting relationship . From that I employ an integrative way of working that is very focused on and what works best for you. If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
