Danusia Mulligan Dip Couns MBACP MNCS (Accred)
I've successfully helped many clients overcome challenges such as anxiety, panic, stress, depression, family and relationship problems, identity issues or loss. Counselling can be helpful, supportive and empowering. It offers a safe, supportive and confidential space for you to talk without fear of being gossiped about, judged or criticised. Therapy can help identify unhelpful behaviour patterns, values and mindsets. It can help you find realistic solutions to your current troubles. Talking about your problems can also help lessen feelings of hopelessness and isolation too.
I am an experienced person centred therapist and I can offer you an empathetic and confidential short term or long term face to face therapeutic relationship in which you feel valued, supported, and listened to. By working alongside one another at a pace that is best for you, we can explore what's holding you back and why; whether your difficulties stem from historic trauma, present day experience or a one off life event.
It can be hard deciding who you want to work with or whether therapy is even the right next step for you. Talking things over with a therapist before committing to sessions can be reassuring. I offer a free 20 minutes consultation; that way you can ask me any questions you may have or talk to me about your concerns. It may also help you make a more informed decision about therapy and whether I am the right counsellor for you. Please call or email; I will aim to respond to you within 48 hours.
I abide by the professional and ethical frameworks of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the National Counselling Society.
I am an accredited practitioner on the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register.
I abide by GDPR Legislation and am a registered member of the Information Commissioners Office.
