Danielle Corbett has a warm and non-judgmental manner; and tries to create a safe space for her clients to explore their individual life experiences. As an integrative practitioner she draws on a range of therapy models that best suit the needs of each client as an individual, working in a holistic manner. She uses the main counselling methods, including Person Centred for a non-directive approach, encouraging the client to grow in the direction they feel is best suited to them. This all allows for different ways of working at different times, depending what is happening in someone’s life, or how they may be feeling at that particular time. Danielle tries to create an empathetic and open relationship to allow the client to feel safe, in order to talk and explore whatever thoughts, feelings or events are happening in their lives. Danielle believes that in working through these difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe and supporting environment, we have the possibility for growth and change.
Danielle has a professional background in the third sector, working for a large multi-national NGO in the field of conservation, as well as having worked in International Development at a large global children’s charity. She also worked for many years in the corporate sector, in a pressurised and demanding role, before deciding to leave the city and work in the non-profit sector. She also has experience working in voluntary advocacy with a mental health charity.
Danielle is registered with the BACP as a student member, working towards an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling. She works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service in Wandsworth.
