Dannie Rosenhammer (MA & Dip Counselling, MBACP, EMDR Therapist)
Having practiced as a counsellor and psychotherapist in Manchester since 2010, I relocated to Glossop in early 2015. In the past I have worked for an NHS counselling service, four different charities and in private practice.
Currently I provide counselling and other support for young people in my employment with 42nd Street and have a limited number of places in my Glossop-based private practice, for people of all ages.
To briefly summarise my way of working, I would say it's about:
- providing a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for clients to deal with personal challenges,
- building a comfortable and trusting relationship, and
- offering various ways of working - within my training - because different people (and different problems) call for different approaches.
In early 2017 I completed the standard training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy and am glad to be able to offer this highly effective trauma therapy at an affordable rate now.
Informal enquiries by phone or email are welcome. I feel it's really important you find the right counsellor for you, so I offer a free 30 minutes face-to-face consultation (see Fees below) to help you decide.
I receive monthly supervision and have insurance for my work, as expected in the profession. Information about fees can be found at the bottom of this page, and my current availability in the left-hand column.
Please have a look at my website www.growing-well.co.uk for more detailed information about the way I work, my qualifications, and testimonials from former clients.
