David Seaman Integrative Counsellor (MBACP)
My name is David Seaman and I am an integrative counsellor (MBACP) based in Ipswich. I believe our childhood experiences form who we are in our adult relationships. I also believe we carry with us the traumas we experience in our lives, these can manifest themselves as psychological and physiological problems. I provide a safe and non-judgemental environment where clients can carefully explore what are often scary and unfamiliar feelings, the mask or armour that has protected one from harm can also prevent an individual from allowing themselves happiness.
I have been a counsellor at Iceni in Ipswich for the last four years.
I was a keyworker at Focus 12 Rehab for two and a half years.
I have worked with individuals facing a range of issues including trauma, depression, loss, anxiety, abuse, addiction and managing relationships.
I'm a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines.

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.
