Dr David Kaposi (BPC & BACP Registered)
Welcome to my site. I am an established psychotherapist, counsellor and psychologist, committed to closely follow wherever my clients' stories, feelings, memories take us. To help you achieve enduring change, I offer an approach rooted in contemporary theory and research evidence.
I find that to understand what my clients’ feelings and experiences are, often we together need to look behind the surface. These feelings have usually been present for a long time and they are expressed or suffered in many different ways. Yet, it is often difficult to put them into exact words. This may be why you too are looking for a therapist: to help talking about what you have, in a way, always known but have never quite been able to say.
I received a rigorous five-year training at WPF Therapy, one of the most respected institutions in the UK for psychodynamic psychotherapy. This training enabled me to work therapeutically with a wide range of issues and provide both problem-focused counselling and broader-ranging psychotherapy. As a therapist working privately I have developed an approach where I trust my clients to know best what their issues are, and provide a space where they are listened to and understood in a way they have not been before.
Alongside my work as therapist, I also hold a PhD in psychology. Working as a Lecturer in Psychology at the Open University, I am a member of the School of Psychology’s Psychotherapy and Counselling Research Group.
Following an initial consultation meeting (free of charge), I offer weekly 50-minute sessions. Therapy then is open ended: whether in the shorter or the longer term, it will conclude whenever you feel ready.
