Nottingham Counselling Service
My name is David, I'm a very empathic person who has a real passion for therapeutic work.
I'm a psychotherapist who specialises in Cognitive therapy, Cognitive therapy focus' on your mind and the way it works, showing you the roots of belief's, thoughts and feelings.
I believe that the key to being a good therapist is to guide my clients into becoming a "self therapist" working through together their Negative thought processes, Core beliefs, look at their goals in life, challenge their negative self belief's and work through it with them so that when we finally part ways my client feels confident enough to go out into the world and deal with anything that life might throw at them.
•Stress Busters: A six week course where groups of 5-7 people discover the root of their anxieties in a safe environment, whilst also learning key Cognitive and Behavioural skills to keep them from intruding on their everyday life.
•P'd Off: A nine week course where groups of 5-7 people can explore their feelings of anger in a safe environment, learning the triggers, the Transactions associated with anger and the best way's to combat anger to stop it keeping you from getting where you want.
•Drive to succeed!: A 5 hour seminar where I explore with a group the secrets of motivation, what halts our motivation, why other motivational techniques fail and how your psychological wellbeing can affect your motivation.
I work out of two easily accessible area's across the East Midlands, either at Mansfield's Shire Counselling or in Nottingham City Centre.
