Daniel Welsh Counselling and Psychotherapy

6 Goldenhill close, Cromwell Rd, Preston PR2 6YD, UK – 07486 898270

Daniel, from my first plea for his help, and throughout my long, at times, painful journey, was deeply insightful, caring, sincere,and a pillar of strength, at every crossroad that I found myself at. He is very open, honest, attentive, and never clock watched! In fact, at times, I was conscious of going over session time!! I cannot speak highly enough of him and from my first, heartbroken session, I had faith in him being able to help me, through my darkest days and to get to the point where I am now.. Feeling able to continue going from strength to strength. Thank you from the bottom of my heart...to you Daniel, an amazing counsellor.

When I asked Daniel for help I don't think I really knew where I was going or who I was. As I found myself again he was right there with me at every turn. Comforting, emphatic and deeply insightful. A real professional that should definitely charge more than he does. Thank you so much Daniel!

Safe Harbour Psychotherapy

Wow. I was treated with so much warmth and felt very relaxed and when I got talking I felt an excellent connection with my phyotherapist. He understood where I was at and I felt very easily able to open up. I felt safe and immediately wanted to come again. I strongly recommend anyone coming here to gain some support in your journey to getting help to make you understand yourself and be able to move forward. 😉
