About me and my therapy practice

How are you doing?  May I help you?  I'm Dave from Counselling Chambers Therapy Practice.  I'm a warm and friendly person-centre counsellor, with a belief that you are the expert in your life and that you can find your way, with help.  My aim is to provide you with a safe space where you will be heard and understood, where we can explore whatever is troubling you.  You will decide what we talk about and we will only work at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

It is important that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minute), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.   

I have significant counselling experience, having worked at a university counselling centre and a relationship charity and I also have 25 years of clinical experience, helping people in various settings such as; Youth Justice, Probation and Social Work.  

My core values:

Compassion – My approach is to attune to my clients, with kindness and compassion and to be attentive to their needs. 

Empathy – Is at the heart of my person-centred approach.   I aim to walk alongside you in your understanding of your experience and to share your uncomfortable feelings, helping you to feel less alone.

Authenticity – I will be authentic in our relationship, offering honest feedback and helping you to connect with your authentic self.

Inclusivity – I am sensitive to the needs of marginalised people and welcome clients from all genders, sexualities and ethnicities.  I have had additional training in working with clients from the Black, Asian and LGBTQ+ communities.
