David Galindo (MBACP)
We are all unique, and so are you. Does it feel like things are getting too difficult for you? I am an Integrative Humanistic counsellor based in North London (MBACP) and I have been trained in a range of different therapeutic models. Therefore, I draw from different techniques being able to offer a therapy that it is right for you.
How do I practice, how I can help you?
No matter what your worries are, or how scared or defeated you may feel I will be supporting you. I want to offer you a safe environment in which to explore without fear any issues, problems or challenges that are causing you mental or emotional distress.
I believe that when you are truly listened to in a confidential and non-judgemental way you can really work through the difficulties gaining an invaluable insight into yourself and helping you grow, making you more resilient and better able to overcome difficult and stressful situations or events.
What can I help with?
You may be struggling with sleepless nights due to urgent worries, sometimes work can be incredibly stressful and relationships difficult and overwhelming. You may be feeling like you are losing your lust for life, as if you don’t enjoy the things you used to in the same way. You may be feeling sad and struggling with depression, the loss of a loved one, recently recovering from a breakup, or feeling stuck and not knowing how to carry on.
You may find yourself making the same mistakes over and over without even realising; counselling provides a safe space for you to explore situations and events with someone that will be supportive and will be with you through your journey.
Together we can explore what is going on for you and what is preventing you from building fulfilling and meaningful relationships. Counselling creates a relationship from which to focus in what really matters to you, helping you building the resources you need for the future.
