Connect with Darren Gallagher
Hi, I’m, a registered psychotherapeutic counsellor (MBACP/ UKCP) with a specialism of working with children, young people and adult clients. I have over twenty years’ experience with children and families within different settings, such as schools, hospices, charities, clinical settings, LAC teams and in the community – Like Violet Oaklander says ‘Play can be a serious business’. I am a humanistic, ‘integrative’ practitioner, so I use different methods and approaches to develop a warm, friendly relationship based on individual needs, respect and accepting the person as a whole – in other words - ‘I’m Ok – You’re Ok’.
I have specialist experience of working with loss, separation pre-bereavement and bereavement; stress; anxiety; attachment; low mood; self-esteem; grief; anger; domestic abuse; care experienced; adoption; neurodiversity; gender; sexuality and relationships. I have an interest in art therapy; dreams, imagery, stories and object relations theory.
Whatever the issue yourself or your child are facing, my hope is that you will allow me to walk alongside with compassion, empathy and care as we make sense of a difficult situation or life event. Through counselling and creative approaches, we'll build a safe, therapeutic relationship, so you feel heard and valued and reach new understandings and meaning.
