My name is David Benjamin. I am a fully qualified therapist working in an integrative way. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). One size certainly does not fit all, we are unique individuals. I offer confidential one to one counselling for issues including anxiety and depression.
I use Eye Movement Dissociation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for dealing with trauma and phobias.
As an adopted adult, I've experienced my own attachment issues that come with this and would love to work with you on your journey. I have also worked in the chemical industry for many years and understand the pressures involved in this area.
I will ensure you feel welcome and safe as we work together.
Contact me by email or phone and we can discuss your requirements.
'Life is an adventure, it's about changing and growing to become the best me that I can be'.
