About me

Hi, my name's David. I'm the director of Zence Consultancy Ltd. I'm a chartered psychologist, registered with both the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society (BPS).

I founded Zence Consultancy as I wanted the independence to truly work with each individual client, finding the right approach for each person, group and organisation, rather than fitting people into a predesignated box or approach. I'm a counselling psychologist. At the heart of my work is a belief that there is no one single solution for every person. We are all unique.

I have trained in a number of psychological counselling and psychotherapy models. I primarily work out of person centred, cognitive behavioural (CBT) and psychodynamic models of therapy, as well as providing trauma focused and mindfulness based interventions. I aim to tailor each course of therapy to you, the client.

In all aspects of my work, I integrate theory and research from psychology, neuroscience and philosophy, to provide evidence based, creative interventions in collaboration with you.

Rather than explain each individual therapy and area here, I would be happy to provide a free 15-20 minute telephone consultation whereby we can discuss your current situation and I can provide more details on how we could work together. The above areas are only indicative; if your requirement differs from any of these items, I will be more than happy to have a discussion about how we may work together.

I offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and clinical psychologists, including trainees. I believe it's important to work on both content and process. I aim to provide space for you to reflect on your direct work with clients, as well as the internal processes which can form a natural part of working in the profession.
