Danielle Tolner RegMBACP
Considering counselling can feel daunting, so congratulations in having the courage to take the first step!
My name is Danielle and I'm really looking forward to working with you! I am an Integrative, Humanistic Therapist, working with adults, children and young people in a variety of settings, including in school and in my counselling practice in the peaceful, rural setting of Brill.
What I can offer you
I can offer you a safe, warm confidential space in which you can unburden yourself of any worries you may have. I will work with you at your own pace, to help you untangle whatever you bring, to help you make sense of what is bothering you and enable you to move on from it
I am a firm believer in positive change. Even if a problem seems intractable, the least I can do is to help you understand it so that its power is diminished; at best I will support you while you try out some different strategies to effect positive change.
I completed my Humanistic Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling in 2011. This Diploma included Person- centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis (T.A). Subsequently, I have deepened my knowledge of T.A in 2012 with a post- graduate Foundation Year and extended my knowledge of C.B.T in 2015 with a course in Child- centred C.B.T, focusing on imagery and metaphor. For the full range of my qualifications and C.P.D, please have a look under 'qualifications'.
In all of my practice, I am guided by the ethics of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapists, (B.A.C.P) a professional body to which I belong, as a registered member. I also belong to its C.C.Y.P (children and young people division) and am fully insured. I regularly attend Child Protection Training, engage in continued professional development and am enhanced D.B.S checked.
