David Chidgey MBACP Psychodynamic Counsellor
I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor working in Hampshire.
If you are experiencing issues with anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, abuse, relationship issues or a lack of confidence, I offer counselling where together we can get to the bottom of your difficulties and help you to understand yourself more clearly.
Psychodynamic Counselling can provide you with a confidential, non-judgemental 'space' to reflect upon and work through the issues you are facing.
Counselling requires commitment from us both, but gradually, over time, it can be a rewarding way to enable you to manage the issues that life throws your way.
In an Initial Consultation, we can discuss what has brought you to counselling and any relevant background information. We can also discuss what your needs and expectations of counselling are and determine whether psychodynamic counselling and me as your counsellor are suitable for you.
Confidentiality is integral to counselling and my aim is to provide you with a safe environment where you are not judged and free to discuss whatever is on your mind.
Our sessions take place at the same time, on the same day, in the same room each week and in doing so we hope to ensure safety and containment.
As part of our boundaries I will not answer direct questions, rather I will treat such questions like any other thought you may have.
Counselling can either be 'open-ended' long-term work or short-term with prior agreement.

The sessions are your sessions, focussing on your agenda and I strongly encourage you to have autonomy over your counselling. Normally the ending of counselling will be by mutual prior agreement however you have the right to end your counselling at any time. If at any time I feel that counselling is no longer helpful or appropriate for you I will discuss this with you.
