Hello, my name is Dave Clogg. I offer one-to-one counselling and run therapeutic groups with associate counsellors and psychotherapists in central London.
During sessions I practice according to three main principles:
Non-judgemental - I work with a client’s reality, accepting them as they are and without judgement or prejudice, supporting them towards a journey of self-acceptance.
Empathic - I provide clients with a space to express complex or difficult emotions. People often need to be heard and acknowledged before they can understand what might be holding them back or keeping them caught in an unhealthy cycle.
Empowering - I work with clients to realise the best version of themselves, offering authentic connection, supporting you to realise and manifest your own potential. Authentic empowerment means having the ability to feel safe in your vulnerability, and knowing and accepting your limitations, as well as realising your strengths and developing your relationships.
My practice is best described as relational counselling. It is a non-directive form of therapy, which acknowledges that you are the expert on your life and that I do not claim to have any answers that you cannot find from within yourself. However, it can be helpful to be supported in finding these answers or a path which is where therapy plays an important part.
My part is to listen, accept and assist in enabling you to gain increased awareness of yourself, your environment and the implications of the choices you make, leading you to a more meaningful and fulfilling life. My method relies heavily on a collaboration, with me acting as a guide for you to explore what you need to.
