About me

Hello! My name is Anthony Davis. I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and coach registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I have 13 years’ experience working in the fields of mental health, social care and charity sector with individuals of various age groups and diverse backgrounds. I provide face to face and online therapy and coaching. I also provide well-being workshops, trainings and individual consultations for organisations to improve the mental health and overall well-being of employees.


As individuals, we all have different needs when looking for therapeutic or coaching support. I believe you should be at the centre of this process and I can help you manage an array of challenges you may have. All of us have the potential for personal change, growth and development and my goal is to help you develop the coping skills necessary to manage life’s difficulties, whilst also guiding you to access pertinent support networks and resources necessary to sustain overall well-being.


Counselling and Psychotherapy: 
I work with adults and couples offering short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy in an effort to facilitate growth, enable change and foster healing of the entire person. Work with my clients varies in scope and timeframe from just a few sessions focusing on a specific concern or concerns, to 'deeper' and more far-reaching therapeutic work which can last a year or more.  


The approach to my practice is integrative which allows me to draw from various therapeutic modalities to tailor therapy to your individual and unique needs. Some modalities I utilise include CBT, Person Centered, Existential, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused Therapy approaches.


I can help you with many difficulties such as:
Anxiety or panic attacks
Stress
Depression or low mood
Anger issues
(OCD) Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
(PTSD) Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Relationship issues
Low self-esteem or shyness
Eating issues such as overweight
Bereavement and loss

I also specialise in working with the LGBTQIA+ community, particularly those struggling with their gender identity and/or sexuality. Furthermore, I work extensive with Black and Minority Ethnic clients and have supported individuals who experienced racial/ethnic discrimination. 


Coaching and Personal Consultancy:
I further provide coaching and integrated counselling and coaching (personal consultancy). Coaching is a dynamic and self-generating process in which we work together to help you improve behaviours, performance, and enact positive change. Through the coaching process, you can develop a clearer direction in life and make meaningful and purposeful life choices.

Personal Consultancy is a framework that integrates counselling and coaching approaches.  This framework can support you to explore and re-balance your thinking, feelings, or habits to enable you to have a stronger foundation for change.
 
The first step is to get in contact. This can be done via telephone, email or the contact form on my website. Getting in contact gives you the opportunity to ask any questions about how I practice and clarify any concerns you might have in regards to pursuing therapy or coaching. The initial contact also gives the opportunity to arrange an initial session to assess your needs for therapy or coaching. The second step is an initial session. This is a 50-60 minute session and is a chance for us to meet, speak about what has brought you for therapy or coaching and to decide if you want to continue working together. There is no obligation to return if you decide that the service is not for you. If you decide to continue, then a weekly time will be arranged to fit with your availability. The number of sessions is flexible around your needs.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
