Dave Wilde, MBACP (Registered), MA, PGDip Psychotherapy, PGCE, BA (Hons).
8 Salubrious Place
I am a qualified psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I also teach counselling skills at UWTSD, Swansea.
My background of working in homeless projects, the NHS and with ex-offenders, as well as teaching and student support in further and higher education, has given me over 20 years' experience of working with people with mental health issues, including generalised anxiety disorder, addiction, relationship issues and trauma. I work in private practice at the Lighthouse Clinic in Swansea, and I continue to teach and provide pastoral care to students.
Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, I understand that it can be a big decision, and that you may feel nervous, uncertain or vulnerable. My first priority is to provide a safe place where you feel you can be yourself and speak without fear of being judged. Once you feel comfortable, I will work with you to explore your issues, and help you understand what changes you can make to feel better about yourself and your relationships.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy and have experience of working with: anxiety; depression; panic disorder; relationship issues; addiction; eating disorders; bereavement; loss; childhood abuse and other trauma.
The easiest way to get in touch with me is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
