David trained as an integrative psychotherapist so he has knowledge and experience of a number of different psychotherapeutic approaches and theories. All of these have therapeutic value and can complement each other when an integrative approach is taken.
Such an approach considers each person as a whole. David's view is that there are many ways in which a person's experience can be explored and understood. Therefore he seeks to take the mental, physical, emotional as well as social and spiritual needs of each individual into account and to promote wholeness in all aspects of a person's being.
David sees clients on both a short term basis (usually 8 to 12 sessions) and on a longer term basis, with opportunities for review.
