Dr David Kaposi PhD (BPC, BACP & UKCP Registered)
5 Staple Inn
I am an experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and psychologist, working in private practice and as a lecturer at the Open University’s School of Psychology. I understand that starting therapy can feel daunting and therefore I offer an initial consultation, free of charge, which gives us both an opportunity to explore what brings you to therapy and how we can work together.
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on feelings and experiences that have been with us for a long time: we express or suffer these in many different ways. Yet, we often find it difficult to put them into exact words. This is why we are looking for a therapist: to help us talk about what we have, in a way, always known but have never quite been able to say.
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. In addition to my therapeutic experience, as a university lecturer I also draw on my understanding of contemporary psychotherapy and counselling research.
I look forward to getting to know you.
