den Practice: David Buckler
I really appreciate how important it is for you to be heard and not judged. Counselling enables you to express your thoughts and feelings in order to make positive changes. Making changes alone is not easy, my training and experience can help you.
I have a great deal of experience in counselling for anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, bereavement and trauma.
I also specialise in the counselling of young people, having worked extensively in secondary schools and colleges.
Prior to this I was engaged in the treatment of substance and alcohol misuse.
My approach is totally none judgmental, being based upon the principles of humanistic practices which offer you the opportunity to explore your problems safely and confidentially. Progress begins with mutual trust and openess, we can make progress on your terms and at your pace.
