David Iles UKCP, NRHP (Reg) Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist, Clinical Supervisor
07773535721 / 0121 459 6719
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I am a highly experienced Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist, Clinical Supervisor and Mindfulness practitioner, with over 20 year’s clinical experience.
I have been UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) registered since 1998, UKCP are the main governing body for psychotherapists in the UK. I am also a full member of the National Register of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (NRHP).
I can offer clients an integrative approach to therapy, which could include Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy for low self-esteem, anxiety-related conditions and phobias. EMDR for trauma-based issues/disorders like PTSD. Psychodynamic Therapy, helping individuals to unravel, experience and understand their true, deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them, or the cognitive therapies i.e. REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy) which are based on the way you think (cognitive) and/or the way you behave. These therapies recognise that it is possible to change, or recondition, our thoughts or behaviour to overcome specific problems.
I believe mind, body and spirit are all part of the same system and a change in one can bring a change in the other, therefore healing and Reiki healing is also part of how I work.
I am passionate about psychotherapy, and believe strongly in its capacity to heal and help people work through painful, traumatic and troubling life events. I am committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional well-being; something that I feel is often over looked. My aim is to provide safe, ethical and professional psychotherapy, creating an opportunity for you to work through difficult issues in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment.
My approach is flexible, some clients are seeking appointments in order to process a particular issue; i.e. bereavement or anger management, others might want trauma-based therapy, or longer term psychotherapy for depression or to work through the impact of, for example childhood issues.
My work as a psychotherapist has been varied including: working full time as a psychotherapist within the NHS and Occupational Health Police Service for almost two decades, providing therapy for clients with depression, anxiety/stress related issues, relationship difficulties, trauma based disorders (PTSD), psychosexual and psychosocial counselling, critical incident stress debriefing and delivering training on mental health .
I am a UKCP approved Clinical supervisor who offers supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists and therapists in training, both to organisations and private psychotherapists.
