David Flint BSc (Hon) Psychology, Dip. Couns, MBACP (Accred), MBPsS.
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.
