David Flint MBACP (Accred), BSc (Hon) Psychology MBPsS, Dip. Couns.
I feel successful therapy is built on the foundation and quality of our therapeutic relationship. During counselling we will work together to build and reinforce that therapeutic relationship. I will work to earn your trust so that you feel secure enough to discuss your feelings, thoughts, issues or problems. Everything we talk about is confidential and I work honestly, respectfully and non-judgementally.
Although each therapeutic relationship is different and each client's experience unique, a successful therapeutic relationship can empower, enable and promote, in the client, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-motivation, self-belief. This can also increase self-awareness leading to understanding, opportunity and motivation to change through choice.
Counselling built on a successful therapeutic relationship will provide a safe, reassuring 'space' where you feel supported, enabling you to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings, understand your experiences and promote your wellbeing.
I have been a carer for over 10 years so have significant experience relating to the challenges that can bring, both to the carer and the cared for.
I offer telephone and online therapy via a secure chat /messenger service so am able to work with those unable to leave home or struggling to do so, but also those who are used to communicating via messenger services and find it preferable to do so.
Issues I have experience of include personality disorders, behavioural problems, identity confusion, transition, relationship issues, anxiety, bullying, stress, self-esteem, self-confidence, anger issues, sadness and loss.
I have worked at various organisations and charities, working at different times in the NHS with people with learning disabilities, a charity for young people and adults with alcohol/ drugs issues, (11-24 year olds), a 6th Form college (16-19 years olds) an established University (18-21 years and mature students) and in my private practice.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
