About me and my therapy practice
Hello! I’m a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist & an EMDR trauma focused therapist. I have a vast range of experience working with adults & young people for 9 years.
I have worked with many different people with many different needs. I have experienced many clients suffering from an array of problems/issues that effect their lives. To name a few, anxiety/depression, family disputes, social anxiety, eating disorders, relationship break downs, emotional sexual & physical abuse, domestic abuse, loss/bereavement and grief and infant bereavement.
I currently work in the NHS as a specialist oncology & palliative care counsellor and a specialist infant bereavement counsellor/psychotherapist. Often I am working with high intensity trauma, bereavement and pre-loss grief as well as intense loss from an infant bereavement.
As well as this I also work in a special needs neurodiverse school with pupils aged 11-19 and teachers.
I have gained experience from working at a Rape Crisis Centre for a number of years. I have experience working in secondary schools with children aged 11-19. I have worked with Mental Health issues at MIND and a Domestic Abuse Centre. My qualifications and continued professional development training are listed below.
My core orientation is Person-Centred which I feel is needed to create an empathetic, respectful trusting relationship. However I will adapt my skills, depending on my clients’ presenting needs and use intergretive methods including EMDR to achieve the clients desired outcome.
I am able to work short term or long term, face to face, online or telephone. I am based in Leigh-on-Sea where parking is available. Sessions are £55 per hour.
Please contact me if you feel you would like to work together or of you would like an initial conversation before we agree to work together. I look forward to meeting you. Danielle.
I work from a practise in Leigh-on-Sea which has parking and wheel chair access. The rooms are very comfortable. We have a reception and a waiting area.
