Life can be complex, and so can mental health. This is why we have a range of different treatments and therapy approaches available, which we can tailor to suit your mental health needs. We put you at the heart of what we do. We offer choice and expert, individualised care for a very broad range of difficulties. We understand that seeking therapy can be daunting and that taking the first step can be a challenge. We start with an initial consultation with a senior clinician, to design a bespoke approach to your therapy, based on exploring and understanding your concerns, needs, preferences and therapy goals.

I believe that when people talk change can happen. If you have been the victim of Domestic abuse and violence, are coming to terms with childhood abuse and making sense of how this has impacted you now, are looking at loss and bereavement or making sense of your time at Boarding School, I may be a good fit for you.

My name is David, and I understand what it means to feel lost in life. I have been in the same position as many people I work with; struggling to seek help, feeling that life is beyond control, feeling unaccepted, either by other people or yourself. Through my practice as a therapist, I will work with you to build a space within which you can freely explore the thoughts and circumstances causing you distress in life, however great or small they appear to you.

I'm an integrative relational psychotherapist and I use my experience of talking and relating to you in sessions to understand your way of being in the world, how you make sense of it and how you relate to others. Your journey is unique. Every time I've been listened to and understood I've come away feeling cared for and valued with a new sense of worth. I've learned that change is inevitable and that how I care for myself in the present affects my future.

Do you struggle with low self-esteem or feel that you’re not good enough ? Do you tend to focus on others, their needs and forget your own ? Perhaps you are finding a particular situation or life event overwhelming ? You might not be able to pinpoint what exactly is bothering you, you just want clarity and to be able to make positive changes in your life.

The counselling I provide offers you the time and space that so many of us need but often lack, especially when life becomes hard or you feel less able to cope as you once did. You may be struggling with depression, low mood, anxiety, low self-esteem, a relationship breakdown, bereavement, or perhaps there is no label that can best describe where you are at right now. Whatever the case and wherever you are at, I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for you to begin your counselling journey.

TA examines feelings and experiences that relate to patterns of behaviour that may be holding you back and having a negative impact on your life. In TA these repetitive patterns are referred to as our “Life Script” and one of the aims of our working together would be to raise awareness of what that means to you and what you would like to change. I have worked for almost 15 years with people from all walks of life who have experienced trauma, relationship and attachment difficulties, low confidence and self-esteem, stress, and depression and anxiety.

Coming to therapy can be a difficult decision to make. When we are having difficulty in our lives our thinking can become unclear or unhelpful and we do things that we think might help in the short term, but can perhaps have a negative effect in the long term. This can result in becoming trapped in unhealthy cycles where you may also be experiencing unpleasant emotions. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help to unravel the complex human thoughts and emotions that sometimes contribute to being less than at our best, and find new ways of thinking and being to move forward.

Life can feel tough and challenging at times. This may be following a specific life event, a change of circumstance, or for reasons completely unexpected or unknown. When we are struggling with something difficult we can often feel unhappy, confused, anxious or overwhelmed, with a sense of feeling stuck and unsure of where to start or what to do. Whatever your reason for accessing therapy, I believe that we all have the capacity for change and positive personal growth and that counselling can support you to bring about the change you want by helping you to find ways of placing yourself back in control.
