About me


My name is David Phelps, I am a person-centred counsellor, specialising in all aspects of anxiety (Generalised Anxiety Disorder, OCD, panic attacks, phobias etc.) I also specialise in all aspects of depression (clinical, bipolar etc.) and addictions.

I also have extensive knowledge in many other varied issues - please see list below.

I have a higher graded degree in Psychology and a Level 4 Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling.

The person-centered approach helps both you and I learn to recognize and trust human potential, providing you with empathy and unconditional positive regard to help facilitate change. I avoid directing the course of therapy by following your lead whenever possible. Instead, I offer support, guidance, and structure so that you can discover personalised solutions within yourself.

When needed I integrate other aspects of counselling to tailor my approach to your specific needs.

I work in Truro but I am more than happy to visit you at your home if preferred.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
