David Sherborn-Hoare Dip Couns, MNCS (acc), MBACP (reg).
Counselling is for everyone. I practice as both Counsellor and Psychotherapist using what is generally known as an integrative model combining elements of both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theory and practice.
I have worked with a variety of clients, male and female, young to old, on a range of issues that have been affecting their quality of life, including anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship issues, anger management, work related problems and a range of other challenges that life has presented to my clients. I provide support for all those in need and provide affordable counselling for the low and unwaged through concessionary rates. Do give me a call on 07702155267 for an informal chat.
My website (www.cheltenhamcounsellor.co.uk) illustrates some of the more common issues that arise during my work including anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder, depression and relationship issues. I have worked with a wide variety of problems that, in addition, include, family issues, abuse, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce, anger management, bereavement, low self esteem, attachment disorder and other emotional challenges which can also be refered to on my website.
My work is based on forming a close professional therapeutic relationship with you from which to explore whatever it is that is affecting your quality of life. This relationship is based upon a foundation of mutual trust from which you can explore your life past and present. My hope is that together we shall enable you to become the person you truly want, and were born, to be.
I have a quiet discrete counselling room in Cheltenham with off street parking and close to bus routes which can be reached within 35 minutes, by car, from most parts of Gloucestershire including Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Newent, Tewkesbury, Winchcombe, and Cirencester.
Counselling is for everyone. I believe in that truth and in the neurobiological, proven, effectiveness of the power of the therapeutic relationship in enhancing the quality of a life.
