About me - Dr Danielle Jackson CPsychol DPsych MSc PGCert BSc (Hons)
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, Chartered by the
British Psychological Society (BPS) and Registered with the Health and
Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am a member of the British Psychological
Society's Division of Clinical Psychology, Transpersonal Psychology
Section and the Faculty for Children and Young People. I am also a
member of The Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy. My Masters degree was completed at University of Leicester and my Clinical Psychology Doctorate was completed at
University of Surrey.
I would describe myself as warm, light-hearted and personable with a desire to create a safe, containing space where clients feel heard and respected. I have over almost 16 years experience of working in mental health. I currently work in an NHS Child Trauma Service (CAMHS) but also see clients privately in South East London on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
My work experience has included working in research at University of
Liverpool, University of Birmingham and the Institute of Psychiatry
working on large research projects including randomised controlled
trials. I have worked across a range of settings including specialist
mental health services, inpatient wards, GP surgeries and prisons.
This has given me a great deal of clinical experience
working with a wide range of different people including children and
adolescents with eating disorders, adults, older adults, people with
brain injury and people with learning disabilities.
How I work
an integrative approach to formulating and working with clients drawing
from a range of psychological models and theories to find the best way
forward to help clients to achieve their goals. I believe that the
therapeutic relationship is an important factor in creating an
environment that fosters change, hope, acceptance and understanding.
Types of therapies I have used
I have experience of using a range of psychological models and
approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), systemic,
narrative, mindfulness-based approaches, parent-child psychotherapy and Cognitive Analytic Therapy
(CAT). I am trained in and qualified to practice Eye Movement
Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have experience of offering therapy to individuals,
couples and families as well as to groups. I also have skills and
experience in neuropsychological testing.
Difficulties I have worked with
I have published academic papers on my research in peer-reviewed journals and have presented at national and international conferences. My research interests include spiritual/anomalous experiences and cultural differences relating to help seeking for mental health problems within the prison population. I have recently submitted a research paper for publication which is under review.
I am also available to offer supervision.
