DANIEL WELSH COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
For the last seven years I have been working with people to find new ways to explore their inner world. Sometimes that's the things in life that you don't feel you can talk about with anyone It or it might be memories that torment you. Maybe you feel stuck in your job or disconnected from everything around you. My goal is to help you re-empower your life and to explore the issues that might be holding you back. Counselling and Psychotherapy can support you as you begin on the road to understand what you truely feel inside and what you really want from your future.
To do this I offer affordable therapy over multiple platforms. This begins with a free consultation, so we can meet and you can see if I am someone you would like to work with. I also offer flexible appointments throughout the week. I have seen the positive effects that just one session a week can give, so contact me Today to get started.
*Coronavirus update: I have increased my capacity for Skype and phone sessions for those that are going through illness and wish to start or continue their therapy. Please be aware that this time is unprecedented and mental health issues during this period need as much care if not more while we all go through this period. Please do not disregard your mental heath and for everyone reading this, be safe and I hope you find the support you need.
**I also work with students participating in Counselling training courses at college, undergraduate and postgraduate levels to support their studies.
WHY MIGHT YOU WANT TO BEGIN THERAPY?
Mental health has had a stigma for as long as i can remember. "It's your brain! why cant you sort your own head out?" I would hear people say.
But this is changing. In recent years Prince Harry and Prince William, sports personalities and film stars not to mention the millions of people around the world that take antidepressants, have sought out counselling to support them in difficult times. More and more influential people are coming forward and talking about the enormous effect Counselling and Psychotherapy has had on turning their lives around. People now talk about their therapist like they are a positive topic of conversation, not a secret. There can be pride in understanding the things that hold us back and moving past them. Counselling is for anyone that seeks to begin a journey of self discovery and wants to bring happiness back into their life, now and in the future. It can help with so many issues, such as :
Are you finding it hard to form relationships or keep them?
Are you having issues in your relationship and seek couples counselling?
Are you dealing with the loss of someone or something?
Are you feeling depressed or anxious and can't imagine a life free of it?
Do you feel disconnected from the world around you?
Do you see a future you want but cant seem to make it a reality?
Everything begins with a first step. I am here to offer professional support and a safe confidential space to share your thoughts and emotions as we walk this path Together.
Counselling support to help you build a brighter future
WHO AM I?
My name is Daniel Welsh and I am a BACP registered Counsellor with a degree in counseling and Psychotherapy and an accredited Diploma in integrated Psychotherapy. I have also worked within broad spectrum Counselling, drug rehabilitation and Samaritans services within the Lancaster and Preston area. It is this experience and my on going training that has given me a broad insight into the many schools of thought concerning mental health such as cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, person-centred and art therapy. I use an integrative method that incorporates all of these processes and more and adapts to what is needed at different points in the therapeutic journey with each individual person i work with.
But behind all of my qualifications and experience i am, in essence, a human being just like you with the scars that life gives us. I understand how it feels to carry the weight of the choices we make in life and the burden that sometimes comes from them. I appreciate how important it can be to have someone to support us when we go through these times. I believe therapy can be a process of growth and self-discovery and an opportunity to say the things you may never have had the chance to say before out loud. I believe within each of us we have the tools to heal any trauma or weight we carry but sometimes the hardest decision is to recognize we need help. I hope i can be that help to you. So if you feel a connection to anything you have just read please contact me and let's take the next step together.
My goal as a practitioner is to offer affordable and reliable Counselling support, with bookings available Monday to Friday**. This is my goal because i appreciate the long wait people may have to deal with on the NHS and the sometimes high costs involved in the private sector for long term therapy.
