About me and my therapy practice
My name is Dave and I believe that from time to time we all need a little support navigating life. As a qualified integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor I offer a confidential, empathetic, and judgement free relationship within which to explore how that support could best fit your individual needs.
Sometimes the cause of distress or upset is clear to us, but the solutions are hard to find. On other occasions searching for the issues themselves can be equally challenging. Therapy can help in both these circumstances; promoting growth when things seem at their worst, or helping us find the path when we lose sight of it.
I offer short or long term work, on fixed or open ended arrangements, from a warm, comfortable, and inviting studio in central Newcastle.
As an advocate of fresh air and movement, walk/talk, nature based, therapy in a number of locations and settings can also be arranged.
Qualifying with a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Northern Guild Institute of Psychotherapy (which prides itself on holding a reputation for the highest standards of training) I continue to work towards a Diploma in Psychotherapy.
I believe continue professional development is the cornerstone of up-to-date integrative professional practice. So continuously look at new and/ or alternative therapies to understand what would best compliment my current practice.
I have experience working with a broad range of issues, with people from all walks of life, backgrounds, sexes, genders, and ages.
I work out of a studio in Central Newcastle which offers furnished comfortable space within which to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Only a 3 minutes walk from Grey's Monument, or a 2 minute walk from Manors Car park.
