David Buswell MBACP
It takes courage to seek counselling and yet it can be the greatest gift you can give yourself. It can make a significant, meaningful, positive and lasting difference to your life.
You do not have to be wrestling with your thoughts and feelings, or to feel as if you are living in a room with the lights turned down. Life does not have to be a struggle, relationships do not have to be difficult. There is another way.
Counselling is a process of self-discovery which will enable you to discover your strengths and accept your shortcomings; to have a greater awareness of yourself; to be in good relationship with others; to recover your sense of self-worth; and to live a more authentic, joyful and purposeful life.
In addition to counselling, I offer Advanced Integrative Therapy [AIT] which engages the body's energy systems to promote healing and the resolution of trauma. It is a simple, gentle and effective form of therapy which has the potential to transform suffering.
I work with people coping with unsettling change in their life which may include one or more of the following:
- Abuse - emotional, financial, institutional, mental, physical, sexual
- Boarding school recovery
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Psychosynthesis counsellor in 2000.
I see clients privately in the Thrapston / Oundle area of Northamptonshire, and in Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire.
Also I volunteer as a counsellor with Mind in Cambridgeshire and with Choices (who offer counselling to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse) and, in the past, I was a volunteer counsellor with Northamptonshire Lesbian Gay and Bisexual Alliance.
Psychosynthesis is a 'humanistic' psychology which helps us to realise our true potential, to live in harmony in the world and to improve our relationships. Central to the approach are the goals of harmonising the conflicting parts of our personality, which may be out of balance due to past or present events, and to reconnect with our potential for responsibility, co-operation, love, meaning and purpose.
My qualifications include:
- BA and MSc in Management Science
- Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from The Psychosynthesis & Education Trust, London. This diploma is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and validated by the University of East London.
- NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner
- NLP Coach
- Advanced Integrative Therapy (Basics training)
Confidentiality is very important to me. I abide by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework.
Everything we discuss in your sessions remains confidential between the two of us. As a BACP Registered therapist I have monthly supervision to discuss aspects of my work to obtain another professional perspective.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Family issues
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Physical abuse
Counselling sessions last for one hour, for which I charge £35.
AIT (trauma therapy) sessions last for 90 minutes and the charge is £55.
Fees are due at the end of each session and you can pay by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
