David Buswell MBACP (Accredited)
It takes courage to seek counselling and yet it can be the greatest gift you can give yourself. It can make a significant, meaningful, positive and lasting difference to your life.
Counselling is a process of self-discovery which will enable you to discover your strengths and accept your shortcomings; to have a greater awareness of yourself; to be in good relationship with others; to recover your sense of self-worth; and to live a more authentic, joyful and purposeful life.
I trained originally (1997 to 2000) as a Psychosynthesis therapist and have subsequently trained (2016 and 2018) in Advanced Integrative Therapy which resolves trauma.
Psychosynthesis is a 'humanistic' psychology which helps us to realise our true potential, to live in harmony in the world and to improve our relationships. Central to the approach are the goals of harmonising the conflicting parts of our personality, which may be out of balance due to past or present events, and reconnecting with our potential for responsibility, co-operation, love, meaning and purpose.
Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT)
AIT engages the body's energy systems to promote healing and the resolution of trauma. It is a simple, gentle and effective form of therapy which has the potential to transform suffering. It works on the principle that our mind, body and energy fields are connected, and that traumatic memories are often trapped in the nervous system of our body.
These trapped memories affect our feelings, thoughts and behaviour; and can create dysfunctional beliefs about ourselves and the world we live in, which in turn, can lead to phobias, relationship problems, addictions, anxiety, depression, anger, self-harm, low self-esteem and physical illness.
Who Do I Work With?
