Hello, my name is David and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. The fact that you’re considering seeing a counsellor means that you’re unhappy with a part of your life, whether it be an unfulfilling relationship, an uncertainty about career or lifestyle choices, or thoughts and behaviours that inhibit your ability to lead the life that you once dared to imagine. The pandemic has also forced people to look again at their life and reappraise what they really want from it.

Often in life we get stuck in patterns which, though once useful ways of being and relating, have now outgrown their usefulness to us, perhaps beginning to get in our way even. Psychotherapy can offer both the space to express, grasp and understand these patterns and then the support and challenge to grow in ways which seem right for you. I am currently seeing clients in person or online. I draw on a range of sources to bring my curiosity to meet you as a whole person. I am interested in your thoughts, feelings, your actions and what may be going on in your body as well as what may emerge in the here and now of our relationship.

Over the 40 years of my nursing career, I have witnessed how an individual's mental health can be just as fragile as their physical being, and this should be cared for just as equally. It is for this reason that I decided to pursue and extend my career into Professional Counselling. I practice an integrative model within my methodology, which is the belief that everyone is individual and requires a tailored approach unique to their circumstance. I offer a 15 minute no obligation introduction session.

I qualified as a ChildLine counsellor in 2006 and worked there for many years. Currently I practise as an integrative face to face psychotherapist/counsellor mainly with adults. I have experience in a wide range of issues having had clients referred through their GP and through self-referral. I treat every client as an individual and so the approach to counselling will also be individual and with respect to your individual circumstances. I strongly believe in therapy being within your control but with the support and encouragement needed to understand your situation and to work on how you may want to change things in your life.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
