Hello, I am David, 40 from Newcastle upon Tyne. Having worked in an NHS practice for six years, a couple of years ago I opened a private practice in Jesmond for new clients.
I hold a postgraduate qualification in Psychotherapy, and a diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Northern Guild. I have practiced psychotherapy and counselling for seven years and am an accredited UKCP professional.
I am analytically minded and my aim is to encourage the articulation of thoughts and feelings. Subject to our goals I will question, interpret or challenge with regard, respect and humour always valuing the importance of working towards an authentic, secure therapeutic relationship.
Together as we elaborate and make meaning of your experience and build a picture of your situation we will identify what may be misconstrued or confused. We can name, come to understand and safely work with emptiness, numbness, shame, guilt, anger, fear.
With an individual, person centred approach, I will utilise and share with you a range of theories in an integrative way. I favour psychodynamic methods and Transactional Analysis, which provides an intuitive set of concepts to develop an understanding of how and why you function the way you do.
