Danielle takes huge pride in maintaining a consistently excellent service across all areas of the consultancy, this is reflected in the positive feedback received. Here are a few examples…
I contacted Dr Danielle White after struggling with how to theoretically underpin ideas for my PhD. I met with Danielle apprehensively at first, as I was coming to the conclusion that the PhD wasn’t for me. Also, as both of my PhD supervisors had expertise in other areas, I thought it would be appropriate to seek a second academic opinion.
Danielle has a natural talent for coaching students in developing their ideas and to inspire confidence in them – I felt she wholeheartedly respected my writing and my academic standpoint. At first Danielle got me to talk through my research ideas and what I had already read and developed in my first chapter. I received comprehensive feedback and also constructive pointers on where my research ideas needed narrowing / developing further. Furthermore, Danielle was able to give tailored advice, as her expertise was in the area I am researching, so was therefore able to recommend appropriate theoretical and methodological frameworks – most of which she got me to reflect on in the coaching session. After discussing her own PhD experiences during the consultation, I felt like the coaching was down-to-earth and realistic, which will now help me go into fieldwork with confidence and assurance thanks to Danielle’s help.
I would recommend Danielle to anybody who is struggling with the demands of postgraduate – work no matter how big or small. Thank-you Dr White!

Danielle designed and delivered a community research project for Langworthy Cornerstone Association (LCA) of which I have been Chairperson for over 5 years. She worked with asylum seekers and refugees in the area of Seedley and Langworthy, Salford to research their health and wellbeing needs and ideas for the development of services at LCA to support those needs. She trained and supported this group to carry out the research in consultation with their own communities. She mentored them through the process towards the successful completion of a research report for LCA Management Board and stakeholders.
The research report identified some powerful and emotive issues and medium to longer term opportunities to support ethnic minority groups living in the area. Relationships built during this time encouraged them to access and develop activities at the centre alongside LCA management board and staff. Danielle has excellent research skills, she is an extremely good communicator, teacher, mentor and developed this community research project with skill, proficiency and sensitivity. I would recommend her for further research projects, she fulfilled a very difficult remit with energy, empathy and her knowledge of community consultation and expertise is outstanding.
