Victoria David MBACP
Hello, welcome to my profile. I am a Counsellor and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist for Individuals. I have a supportive, non-judgemental approach to help you explore and work through the difficulties you are experiencing.
Counselling: There are many reasons that bring people to counselling, whether for a specific issue or a feeling that you or your life is not as you would like it to be. It can be helpful to talk to a counsellor, who is not involved with your life, where you can speak freely in a confidential and accepting space. I will not tell you what to do or how you should feel; instead I will work alongside you to help you discover your own answers and reach your own conclusions.
I offer clients a free half an hour meeting so we can meet each other and you can decide if you would like to work with me. I offer short and long term counselling, depending on what you need and which we can discuss during our first meeting.
Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP): Horses are powerful teachers offering the possibility of personal growth, learning and healing. EFP fosters the development of: Healthy Relationships, Trust, Setting Boundaries, Communication Skills, Empathy, Respect, Gentle Leadership, Confidence,
Recognising and Understanding Emotions, Managing Energy Levels.
EFP involves non ridden reflective and active exercises in a safe confidential environment. EFP can help with: Trauma, Abuse, Eating Disorders, Addiction, Self Harm, Depression, Anxiety, Low Self-Esteem, Family Breakup, Relationships, Bullying, School Exclusion/Truancy and many other issues.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling (BACP) and work according to their ethical framework.
