David Williams, MA (Coun. Psych.), Dip. (Coun. Psych.).
- Hello and welcome to my profile page..
Rather than say lots here, I prefer to keep it straightforward and to the point. I am very experienced as a counsellor, having qualified in 2005. I have a Masters degree and a Diploma in counselling and psychotherapy and currently work in private practice from my home and also for the NHS based in a doctors surgery where I receive referrals from GP's - I have an excellent track record for helping my clients reach recovery.
If you would like to come along to have a chat about what's bothering you, I don't charge my full fee for the first session, just in case you would prefer to go away and think about it before committing to more sessions, or just want to try another counsellor for comparison - it's no different really to being comfortable with one person and with another, not. Come and check me out and you can decide if it feels right for you.
I can help with a broad variety of problems (see list below) and can let you know over the telephone if I can help you before committing to come along to see me.
Any questions, please feel free to give me a call.

If you might benefit from seeing a different therapist or another specialist, I will discuss this with you.
