David Roberts MNCS (Snr Accred) MBACP (Reg)
At times, for any one of us, life can seem unmanageable as we struggle to make sense of our difficulties. We find ourselves becoming ‘stuck’ as we repeat outdated patterns of behaviour that leave us feeling depleted and frustrated. This can affect our relationships, work and home life causing conflict and upset. Coming to see a therapist can help make sense of what is happening. By confronting formative beliefs and behaviours some of which have no place in your adult life, you can begin to understand yourself on a deeper level.
During the counselling sessions you will be able to explore various aspects of your life and feelings whilst talking about them openly and freely in a way that is rarely possible with your family and friends. It isn’t always easy at first but given time you will begin to recognise your negative relating styles that have kept you tangled and unhappy.
As a qualified therapist working from my private practice in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, I understand that I am in a privileged position. One that requires trust and a willingness to truly understand what it is like to walk in another's shoes. Therefore I aim to always be sensitive and create a nurturing environment whereby you will never be made to feel judged or cross-examined.
Please feel free to call me as I am happy to discuss the counselling process and how we could work together. This also enables you to gain a sense of me as you begin that first very important step on your journey.
