Danuta Jakubiel MA, MSc Couns Psyc, Systemic Family Practitioner,Reg MBACP
Welcome and thank you for looking at what I can offer
I am fully qualified to offer counselling to both adults and children/young people. I am a qualified relationship counsellor and systemic family practitioner and I work both in private practice and within the NHS. I support couples and families with relationship difficulties of any nature, and also where a family member may be experiencing mental heaIth issues. I work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma and chronic illness as well as people who have experienced abuse. I also work with people experiencing work based stress.
I aim to provide a safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings confidentially, to understand you and to listen to you without judgement. I will go at your pace and support you to discover new perspectives, explore who you are and what is important to you and to make changes when and if this feels right for you.
I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and I offer specialist relationship counselling to couples and family members having undertaken advanced training.
I am happy to work on a short term basis from as little as four sessions or to work on a longer term or open ended basis where you are free to return to counselling after a break or to cope with a new challenge in your life.
My approach is person centred which focuses on developing our therapeutic relationship although I also integrate solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural ,systemic and psychodynamic approaches
As a counsellor I work with people with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, health issues, abuse, trauma and lots of other issues.I work with individuals, couples and family members as well as young people.
I also offer both personal and career coaching drawing in my experience as a manager and consultant as well as my skills as a counsellor. I have particular skills and experience in dealing with work based stress and anxiety and in career coaching.
My approach is collaborative putting you in the driving seat and travelling at your pace I aim to draw out individual potential using a reflective rather than a directive approach.
I offer both counselling/psychotherapy and coaching from my comfortable practice based in Sale, South Manchester.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

My approach is person centred which focuses on developing our therapeutic relationship. This is a relationship within which as a client you can feel truly heard and understood. I aim to listen emphatically with acceptance and without judgement. Through this relationship you can explore what is happening in your life, seek solutions and go on to make changes at a time and pace which is right for you. We will embark on that journey together. Depending on the presenting issues I may also integrate solution focused, systemic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic approaches.
I work with couples and family members who wish to explore their relationship, feel they have reached an impasse or are facing a particularly difficult period in their relationship.This may include couples who are unsure if they want to stay together.
I see young people with a variety of issues including low mood, anxiety, exam stress, friendship issues, bullying, parental separation and divorce and lots of other issues. I am experienced in working with young people as I currently work within Child and Ad7lt Mental Heath Services (CAMHS) in the NHS
