Over 9 Years Post-Chartership Experience

Hi. I'm David. I'm a chartered and registered counselling psychologist - I help individuals and couples with their psychological health. I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counselling psychologist. My focus involves depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and relationship problems, as well as the particular difficulties encountered by men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting enables you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment appointment in Mitcham.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts influence your emotions and behaviour. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the problems you experience. The aim of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

Counselling

(1 Review)
Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine which issue concerning your early years or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a solution that is right for you.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy investigates how you comprehend your existence. It encompasses deliberation on your perspectives, capacities and choices. Existential therapy aims to help you discover meaning in your existence and the problems you encounter.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapies to suit your preferences and the issues you encounter. It explores your subjective experience and options. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-awareness.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you experience. It facilitates you in being conscious of aspects of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to enhance your self-comprehension to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests psychodynamic therapy for depression, self harm and substance dependence.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you ease symptoms.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"During my three years in therapy I felt that David really provided a safe environment for my first experience. During my time as a trainee counselling psychologist I had both experienced academic difficulties which I felt caused stress and at times low confidence. David was able to help me deal with these issues and I felt listened to at all times. David as a person poses a calming nature and is very empathetic."

"David was warm, thoughtful and empathic. He allowed me space to reflect and process some feelings that I have had over many years. Unlike my previous experiences with other therapists I never felt judged and David never assumed anything about me. I always felt that he was interested."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"I met with David at an incredibly low point in my life - anxiety and an eating disorder kept me off work for several months. It wasn't easy to confide with someone but David had a way of making me feel at ease and never judged. Our time together was crucial in getting me to face some of the issues causing my anxiety and to talk through solutions. At all times I felt valued, listened to and supported. Some of the issues we discussed were intensely personal and painful - yet the benefits of them slowly being teased out were key to starting the process of healing. I would have no hesitation in recommending David to any person out there feeling lost, helpless of defeated. Therapy made a huge difference to my life and was a key factor in me being settled and happy today."
