DAVID STAPLETON BA (HONS), ADV DIP COUNS, REG MBACP
COUNSELLING IN FALMOUTH, CORNWALL.
Welcome to my private practice for Falmouth based counselling.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and therapist, and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I run a private professional and confidential counselling practice for the Falmouth area of Cornwall.
As a registered member of the BACP I fully comply with the ethical guidelines of that association. I offer counselling / psychotherapy on a short or long term basis depending on the needs of the client.
Training, qualifications & experience
I was inspired to become a counsellor by my interests in creativity, art, culture, existential philosophy and Zen. This has had a major influence on my approach to therapy, derived from exploring the nature of mind through mindfulness in the here and now, and presence as an experience within our relational environment.
I describe my way of working as person-centred existential-phenomenological. I see my role in the therapeutic relationship as a kind of guide, that can support you in finding an increased awareness of your self, and the choices you make, to live a more meaningful, and fulfilled life.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, in a variety of settings including primary and secondary schools, a drug and alcohol project in Westminster, and an arts university in South East London.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Carer support
- Domestic violence
- Drug abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Family issues
- Internet addiction
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Physical abuse
- Relationship issues
