David Abrehart MBACP
3 Arlington Road
London - South West
I practice both psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy from comfortable rooms in Surbiton. My approach is feeling-led, empathic and engaged.
Areas I help with include emotional difficulties such as social anxiety, excessive worrying, bereavement, abuse including sexual abuse, stress and mid-life crisis, as well as student mentoring. Or maybe your concerns feel less defined such as a sense of emptiness, a feeling of not knowing who you are or having lost your way, or maybe recurring problems in relationships in your life. Let's try together to understand you better, and help you to find your way forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training was at Birkbeck, University of London which is highly respected for psychotherapy training. My qualifying course was the BACP-accredited Foundation Degree in 'Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy' (Merit), and I continued my studies to achieve a BSc (Hons) in the same subject (1st Class with honours).
As well as my private psychotherapy practice, I am a specialist student mentor for students with mental and physical health conditions at Kingston University.
I am committed to onward professional development, and I am developing my practice at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust (Inter-Cultural Psychodynamic Psychotherapy course D59).

My fees are £75 per session
If you may be interested in seeing me, here's how the process would go:
You email me or leave a message and I'll either email you or call you back for a brief confidential chat at a mutually convenient time.
If we agree, then we will arrange to meet for a consultation which would be an opportunity to find out more about you and assess your needs. You're not committed to anything except that session's fees.
If we would both like to continue we will set up an arrangement for regular sessions, or I may assist with a referral. I can see patients up to twice a week. My work is clinically supervised as is required by my membership body.
