About me

Do you sometimes feel different from other people – like no one seems to understand you? Do you feel like an outsider in your own life?

If so, you’re not alone.

If you want to create a life where you feel worthy, lovable and fulfilled, I can help.

Hi, I’m Danny Ford. I’m an integrative psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher.

My wish is that no one feels unlovable or suffers from chronic loneliness. My key goal with my therapy clients and meditation students is to help them find more love and connection within themselves, and with others.

I want you to nourish yourself so that you truly value and accept yourself. When you feel worthy and confident, you’ll be able to fully listen to your inner voice, leading you towards a deep sense of inner peace, happiness, and fulfilment.

I can provide:

  • In-person counselling and psychotherapy sessions in my office in Leeds

  • Phone counselling throughout the UK

  • Online therapy throughout the UK

Would you like to have a conversation with me to see if we’re a good fit?

Ring me at 07715 272633 or email me at hello@mindfulnessandpsychotherapy.com to arrange for your free 15-minute confidential phone consultation.

Contact me today for your free consultation.
