About me

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile, my name is David Holden and I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist...

Sometimes life throws obstacles in our path, and we are unable to deal with them alone, this is where counselling can be very helpful, together we can find the best way forward, and get your life back on track.
You may find it really helpful to talk things through with a qualified professional in a nurturing, non-judgemental, confidential space.

I can offer appointments every day, morning, afternoon or evening, seven days a week, so I am sure we can find a space to suit us both.

I have worked in many different settings -  Primary Care [GP surgery], Bereavement agency, I have worked in schools, working with children form the ages of 11 to 18, and in Private Practice - which means that I have experience in a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, phobias, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicide, bereavement, relationship problems, work-related stress etc.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I draw from a number of theoretical approaches which include Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred, and more.

We can work long term or short term, home visits may be possible if mobility is a problem - please enquire, I can pretty much work around most schedules, there is nothing we cannot achieve

I also offer skype counselling, or telephone counselling for clients who would find it difficult to commit to face to face counselling

I have plenty of parking space and disabled access
