David Eden-Riley BSc (Hons), PGDip, LHEP, BACP Accredited
My life journey has been one of challenge and I am not alone, we all have challenging times in our life and often these can seem like desperate and dark places.
The role of the counsellor is to create a confidential, safe, caring and non-judgemental space for the client. A space where the client can bring their fears and concerns and where the counsellor can help facilitate the client to identify new possibilities and insights into what may seem like difficult and often desperate situations.
As a counsellor my aim is to help you to grow, live your life to the full and become the best version of you.
As well as training as an Integrative Counsellor I am also a Licensed Human Element Practitioner. The Human Element gives me a unique insight into helping you identify the lens through which you see others and through which others see you. I help you to identify those patterns in your life which often cause you to see things in a challenging way, or to avoid or make decisions that are not in your best interests. I cover areas including anxiety, relationship issues, panic disorder, depression and family issues.
My understanding of counselling and the Human Element model enables me to provide life coaching which can really help to frame where you are now and where you want to be going forward. Below, you can see some more specific information regarding how I can help with your career progression.
To get started on your journey then please call or email me and we can discuss further how I can help you. If you are happy that we can work together then we can arrange our first session at a time which suits you. After this first session, we can set up weekly/fortnightly sessions depending on which is most appropriate for you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I provide unique and empowering Career Counselling.
Before becoming a counsellor, I had a long career in the public and private sector as a team member, a team leader and a senior manager. I know what it takes to progress, but more importantly, I am able to quickly identify the factors that hold a person back from fulfilling their full potential.
I recognise that people often have challenges at work. They may range from anxiety through to bullying. Issues at work have an impact on the career choices we make, and people can often become deeply frustrated and stuck in a loop of despair. The approach I use offers the opportunity for people to free themselves from a negative cycle and shift themselves to the next step. The approach works for both people who are stuck and have had traumatic experiences, but also for people who merely want to accelerate their career, make a career change or a step up to the next role.
I work with people to:
- Identify key skills
- Identify key achievements
- Produce compelling examples for an interview which are aligned to the specific role and organisation.
- Produce a compelling CV/Professional Profile
- Talk with confidence and ease about yourself, your offering and your experience
