You Don't Have to Live Your Life Feeling Flawed and Unworthy

Imagine what life would be like if you felt you deserved the best life possible.


Wherever you live, I can help you feel good about yourself and have a deeply fulfilling life.



About You:

“I feel different than other people. No one seems to understand me. I often feel like an outsider.”

“I have trouble standing up for myself and speaking my truth. People tend to walk all over me or treat me badly.”

“I tend to cater to other’s needs in my relationships and don’t feel I get what I need.”

“People sometimes tell me that I am a loving and giving person, but I don’t understand why I feel so flawed and unlovable.”

“I feel uncomfortable in social situations. I am often quiet and afraid that people will reject me if I stand out. I don’t know the best way to have a social conversation.”

“I feel depressed. I sometimes feel very worried and anxious. At times I don’t know what I need or want. Life just feels empty.”

“I am very hard on myself. I have a lot of self-critical thoughts.”

If you identify with any of the above statements, you may feel terribly alone.

I’d like you to know that you are not alone.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and it’s not your fault that you feel like this.

Hi, my name is Danny Ford.

I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher.

I work with people who have a lot to offer the world, but because they feel small, invisible and unworthy, they have not reached their potential. They often feel unhappy and unfulfilled.

Like a plant that has not been watered sufficiently, lack of love and nurture in early life is deeply damaging to one’s sense of worth.

It is likely that when growing up you did not get what you needed. You may have been emotionally, physically, and or sexually abused. You may suffer from symptoms of trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

You may, or may not, be aware of the source of your problems. However, I can assure you that you have many gifts to give to the world.

My therapy services or personal consultations can help you actualize your potential and feel more valuable and worthy of love.

Becoming a mindfulness teacher and psychotherapist felt right: a natural evolution after devoting many years to my personal healing and growth.

I have devoted the last 15 years of my life to personal growth and healing. During this time I trained to become a psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher.

I am intuitive and gentle in my approach to working with people who have suffered greatly in their lives. I focus on tuning into your experience on a deep level.

I am sensitive, compassionate and caring as I listen to your unique experiences and respond to you a helpful and healing manner. I offer deep respect for you as an individual - it is your relationship with me that forms that foundation of your healing.

My therapy and coaching clients tell me that working with me helped them to:

• Have more confidence in themselves, and feel more deserving of love and respect.

• Be treated better in their relationships, and have the courage to leave relationships that are not working for them.

• Stand up for themselves with others and be better able to get their needs met.

• Feel more satisfied with themselves and their lives.

• Feel calmer and more at ease inside themselves and with others.

“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
