About Danielle

 I have always had a passion for helping people to develop and learn and now I am lucky enough to be able to work doing something I am passionate about.


Following the completion of my degree in Psychology and several years involved in  leadership training, I qualified as a group exercise instructor and went on to teach a range of classes for the next 10 years while I continued to study.

Part of these studies included completing my PGCE (teacher training) where I honed my skills as a trainer and educator and have been able to use these skills teaching and training children and adults.

I decided after this that I wanted to continue with my studies in health and successfully completed my Masters in Health Psychology at University College London (UCL) & Kings College London where I developed my interest in working with people to help make changes for a healthy body and healthy mind.


I trained and qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and have been in practice now for over a decade.


I work with the UK Academy to deliver training in hypnotherapy and with ELECT Training to deliver CPCAB accredited counselling training.  For more information, please visit my training page.


Since then I have attended many different workshops and training and added several qualifications to my portfolio.
