I have a 9 month old son who also went through this. He has only been sleeping through for about 4 weeks now! Same as your daughter, he doesn't like falling asleep on his own. I have found that feeding him until he is just about asleep ( he still likes to be fed - breastfed - to sleep) then I put him down in his bed & pat him for a few minutes. This works most of the time but you do get the odd time when he wakes up & has a bit of a cry. If this happens I wait 15 minutes ( on advice from a child health nurse) & then go back in, lay him back down, saying the same thing each time ( so that he knows that when I say "time for sleepies" its time for bed )& pat him for a few minutes. I lengthen the time till I go in by 5 minutes each time. This worked great for my son & he now goes off 8 times out of 10 by himself & now sleeps through. which when you consider he was waking up every 2-3 hours up till a month ago, its pretty good. P.s - I also have music playing in his room as he is a light sleeper & this takes the emphasis out of the back ground noise - our voices etc etc. Hope this helps.
