About me and my therapy practice
Does life feel difficult or challenging for you right now?
Do ordinary life tasks seem overwhelming?
Are you trying to find a way to navigate your path?
Perhaps you considering alternative paths to parenthood?
Hi, I'm David and I'd like to help.
I am an experienced therapist using an integrative approach to counselling. Primarily I work using a person-centred approach combining psychodynamic theory (psychosocial and attachment theory), CBT, Transactional analysis with a keen interest in Transpersonal theory.
I am passionate about your physical, emotional, spiritual and mental well-being.
I am a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and have experience in fertility complexities, sexual identity, Surrogacy, and alternative routes to parenthood.
I have experience volunteering with a low-cost counselling service and I believe in accessible therapy for all. I offer a certain number of reduced rate sessions online for those who might not otherwise be able to afford therapy.
I am an empathic and compassionate therapist who believes in equality and positive mental health. You deserve to live your best life.
I feel the key to a successful therapeutic relationship is how you and I will work together to create a safe space in which to work and explore your thoughts and feelings. Therapy is something that you participate in and not be subjected to.
I offer telephone, online, or face to face sessions locally on a weekly basis.
Low cost therapy is currently available online, please contact me for details.
Online & Telephone counselling is currently £50.
Face to face therapy is currently £60.
My first session
Prior to our first session we will have up to a 20-30 minute phone call to discuss what brings you to therapy and what you hope to gain from it. I will explain a little more about how I work and we can use this time to decide if we can work together and if we are the right fit for each other. If we are not, I will happily signpost you according to your needs.
If we decide to proceed with therapy I will send you an assessment form to complete. I will also send you a contract and a working alliance which is how you and I plan to work together. The therapeutic process is very much us working together for you.
Subsequent sessions can be time-limited or open-ended and last for 50 minutes.
