About me

Hi, I’m David and I am a qualified counsellor. I live in a wonderfully 21st Century family as both a father and step-father and all the complicated family networks that brings. I enjoy cross-country running, cooking and in the dark, distant days before COVID-19, singing. I have over 12 years’ experience working in mental health, including with adults, older adults, forensics and dementia in both in-patient and community settings, with large groups and one-to-one. However, in all of these areas, it was the time spent with clients where they could have the time and space to talk about their experiences and difficulties, including some that were very traumatic, that most resonated, both for them and for me. Exploring this further, I therefore undertook training to become a counsellor and psychotherapist.

My therapeutic approach

I have trained to work Integratively, combining the Person Centred (PCT) approach with Attachment Theory (AT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This enables my approach to both understand and make sense of any underlying problems and patterns affecting you and your life (AT), provide solutions to presenting issues that arise (CBT), all while prioritising the creation of a space in which you can feel safe and supported in exploring what are often very difficult parts of you (PCT). For more information on Integrative Counselling, please see our Guide to Therapeutic Approaches.

Qualifications and training

I have a master’s degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, as well as an LTCL in music performance. My training as an Integrative psychotherapist, combining a Person-Centred approach with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Attachment Theory means that I can adapt to a wide range of areas which have included: anxiety; depression; domestic abuse; trauma; relationship issues; dissociative identity disorder; bereavement; stress management; emotional dysregulation; self-harm, and many others. Despite this, every client is different and so much more than just a single issue or a diagnosis. I look to work with the whole person, based upon building a trusting relationship, from where together, we can develop greater understanding of your difficulties and form solutions and strategies that work for you and your life.

Professional body membership

I am a registered member of the British Association of for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and bound by their code of ethics for standard practice in counselling. I also work closely with my clinical supervisor.
