David Sutherland MBACP (reg) Counsellor & Therapist
Based between Dalston and Stoke Newington, I offer both short term counselling and also open-ended therapy. I have a broad background of experience working with a range of clients in agency and charity settings and now several years in private practice.
I offer a safe, non judgmental, confidential space for you to explore issues that are perhaps causing depression, anxiety, emotional or psychological pain. We would work together to allow you to move forward.
My early training was in Gestalt therapy which has a particular focus on the present, and encourages you to speak from the here and now. I also work with other psychotherapeutic approaches, and ultimately the approach is tailored to your needs and unique history.
As well as extensive experience working with adult individuals with a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression and relationship issues, I have particular experience working with addiction, psychosexual problems, sexuality and identity.
Training, qualifications & experience
After 4 years of training I qualified at the Metanoia Institute in Gestalt Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
I then completed a 2 year postgraduate psychosexual and relationship therapy training.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and adhere to the BACP code of Ethics.
As with any discipline focused on growth, I continue to attend trainings in the field of psychotherapy, which greater informs my work.
At present I am researching the use of forest therapy (shinrin-yoku), a healthcare method originating in Japan to prevent depression, anxiety and stress.
