David Barragan, Dip counselling, NCS (Accredited)
I offer counselling in dealing with all facets of life, including challenges faced by caring for an elderly family member, support for parents and siblings of children and young adults on the Autism spectrum and counselling victims of, and those affected by abuse.
I offer an integrated approach which means that I use different counselling theories in my work as appropriate to the client and issues that they present with.
I offer a non-judgmental respectful space with a genuine desire for us to work together to help you to better understand your self and support you to make your own decisions.
I aim to support my clients in dealing with past and present in order to improve coping and general quality of life.
I will make myself available to anyone who needs a listening ear.
