Hello my name’s David Chandler and I hope I can help you in your search to find out more about counselling, either for yourself or someone else you care about.
I chose the name Lifecipher for my company because I work in a profession which is about trying to help people to figure out the complex problems that beset their lives. Some people find their problems so difficult to work out that it is almost like trying to decipher a code. Quite often the reason for this is that something has happened that falls outside of their normal understanding of how the world works; or at least how they believed the world worked. When significant changes like this occur people can feel very disorientated, vulnerable and confused. It is at times like this that counselling psychologists can be of assistance and through therapy help people reorient themselves.
The information contained below describes the services that I am able to provide. For more detailed information or to just have an informal conversation feel free to contact me.

David Chandler is the main practitioner/therapist and as such manages and runs the counselling psychology consultancy service, The company was first established in 1994 and since that time has been engaged in providing counselling and psychological based services to individuals, groups, non-profit organizations and corporate bodies.
