Dave Fussell (MBACP, Dip.Couns)
I offer individual counselling, working with clients experiencing a range of difficulties including:
· Poor self-image and self-esteem
· Compulsive behaviours
· High Internet Use
· Social anxiety
· Problems in relationships and relating
I work very openly with my clients and believe the most important thing is to build a good relationship between counsellor and client, a relationship where you can feel secure, accepted, and heard.
As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of therapeutic approaches. This means that I can work with you flexibly in response to your specific issues and needs. We may look at your early years and experiences and see how they still might shape some of you behaviours today. We will also look at what is going on for you today and how you may be feeling here and now.
I also have knowledge and experience of successfully working with individuals of all ages in their recovery from addiction to computer gaming and adult internet porn. These behaviours create serious problems in both the individual as well as close family members and marital relationships.

Initial Assessment - £20
Approaching counselling for the first time can be a daunting experience. I offer £20 initial consultation, lasting up to 50 minutes. It's for you to ask any questions about me and the counselling process, and to discuss any concerns you may have. This is also an opportunity for us to meet and get a sense of whether we can work together.
Individual Counselling - £40
Sessions last for 50 minutes and usually take place at the same time each week.
Counselling isn't about giving advice, it's exploring thoughts and feelings about issues and concerns and with the awareness that this creates, having an opportunity to discover how to more forward in life with this new knowledge.
