David Brodtman MBACP, UKCP
I am a Psychotherapist based in Cricklewood, North West London, with over 35 years experience of supporting people in distress. I hold a Post-Graduate diploma and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I practice Humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. Different approaches work better for different people, and I therefore approach the individual as a whole person including body, feelings, mind and spirit. The integrative therapeutic experience leads towards a greater tolerance of life's experiences and an increase of creativity and service
Although able to support people in any number of situations, I have particular experience in supporting those living with long-term health conditions or disability and those affected by acute or life-shortening illness, or living with depression and the effects and impact of bereavement and loss.
I am able to see people in my home in NW2, very close to Cricklewood Thameslink station, or a short bus ride from Golders Green and Willesden Green tube stations.
I also have wide experience in supporting people with sexual identity and gender issues.
