Danny Hall MBACP Qualified Person-Centred Counsellor
Thank you for taking the time to consider my profile. Choosing a counsellor isn't always easy and I would recommend you take your time and trust your own judgement. It can also be difficult to make a decision based on a photograph and brief written summary which is why I feel a phone call can prove very helpful in aiding your decision.
You can expect to receive from me a respectful and open counselling relationship. We will negotiate the best way of working together in aiming to achieve your goals.
The ability to open up about your inner world can be extremely difficult and at times uncomfortable, however the positive effect this can have on someone's life can and in my experience does make the hard work all worth it. I decided to qualify as a Person-Centred Counsellor as it provides people with the opportunity to explore their inner feelings, empowering them to come to the realisation of what they would like to change in their life and how that can be achieved. I feel the most important aspect of counselling is for you, the client, to talk about whatever you feel safe to share, at a pace that suits you. I will never pressure you to open up and will be right with you at your speed as this is your space.
I look forward to hearing from you and joining you on your journey.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
