Anthony Davis MBACP, BA (Hons), MSW
Hello! My name is Anthony Davis. I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, and a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide one-to-one therapy and online therapy via Skype.
As individuals, I believe we have different needs when looking for therapeutic support. Through a holistic, personalised approach, therapy can provide beneficial improvements in mental well-being and the decision making that is right for us.
I have over 10 years experience working as a counsellor and psychotherapist with individuals of various age groups and diverse backgrounds. Practicing in both the United States and the United Kingdom, I have worked with clients in the NHS and in private practice exhibiting a range of difficulties that impact their lives and cause them emotional and psychological distress.
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 utlise include CBT, Mindfulness, Person Centered, Existential, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused. I believe that you should be at the centre of the therapeutic process, and my role is to support you to find your own meaning. My goal is to help you develop the coping skills necessary to manage life’s difficulties, and access important support networks and resources to sustain overall well-being.
I specialise in working with a range of difficulties; some of which are below:
Depression or low mood
(OCD) Obsessive-compulsive disorder
(PTSD) Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Low self esteem or shyness
Bereavement and loss
I also specialize in working with the LGBT+ community, particularly those struggling with their gender and sexual orientation or those who have experienced discrimination due to their sexual orientation. I also completed significant therapeutic work with BAME clients, and supported individuals who experienced racial/ethnic discrimination.

Free 15 minute initial phone consultation
£70 for each 50 minute session (individual)
£40 for each 50 minute Skype session
I offer sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm, on Thursdays from 9am to 8pm, and on Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.
Payment can be made with cash or bank transfer (bank transfer only for Skype sessions).
No charge is made for appointments changed or cancelled with at least 48 hours notice. Within that time the full fee is charged.
I provide short-term counselling and long-term therapy in an effort to facilitate growth, enable change and foster healing of the entire person. Work with my clients varies in scope and time-frame 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 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. The initial contact also gives the opportunity to arrange an initial session to assess your needs for therapy.
The second step is an initial session. This is a 50-minute session and is a chance for us to meet, speak about what has brought you for therapy 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.
Skype therapy allows you to receive therapeutic support from the comfort of your own home. This service is ideal for anyone who is not able to have therapy in person frequently, or who has a hectic lifestyle and needs a flexible approach to therapy.
Skype therapy involves the same process as the more traditional form of therapy. The sessions will be held at an agreed time once per week at a convenient time for you. Also, the therapeutic approach will remain the same as well as the ethical and professional boundaries I must uphold as your therapist.
