David Hamilton MBACP (Accred). Counselling - Psychotherapy - Supervision.
COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
As an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I listen without judgement in a confidential, honest environment. I work with individuals and couples on Relationship Issues, Anger Management, Anxiety, Depression, Abuse and violence, Sex and Sexuality, Sexual Abuse, Identity Issues, Bereavement and Loss, Addictive Behaviour, Low Self-Esteem, Work Related Issues and Personal Growth, to name some of the areas I have experience of.
I take an integrative approach, making use of a number of therapeutic models and techniques, including CBT, suited to your individual needs. I began my career as a counsellor over 15 years ago. To date, I have gained substantial experience in providing successful therapies in different counselling settings on a long and short term basis; with a wide range of life problems and mental health issues in my private practice and the NHS. I practice privately in Upper Tooting SW17 and Deptford SE8. Both locations are close to underground, overground and bus routes. Both locations have disabled/wheelchair access and have metered car parking nearby.
If we arrange an initial consultation, you can discuss your concerns in confidence and decide if you feel comfortable in working with me. This also gives me the opportunity to find out more about you and assess your therapeutic needs. Having the professional, emotional support you need can help you to explore your difficulties from different perspectives, access more inner resources, providing new ways to manage and move forward.
As a qualified supervisor, I also provide counselling supervision to trainee and qualified therapists individually and in groups.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP) I am fully committed to working within their code of ethics. I am also committed to ongoing professional and personal Development
Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting, especially if you've never done it before. If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone or email and I will be happy to talk them through with you on: 07947 348 firstname.lastname@example.org

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
