The Partnership Counselling - David Wootton Dip HE MBACP
My name is David Wootton and I am a privately-practicing, person-centred counsellor. I offer one-to-one therapy for a wide range of issues including relationship issues, affairs, depression, stress/ anxiety, low self esteem, family related issues, bereavements, culture related issues, sexual and domestic abuse, bullying, self-harm and concerns relating to sexual identity.
My priority is to offer a professional, welcoming and flexible service. Short or long-term counselling is always negotiable and I am often able to work with clients who have irregular shift patterns at work or inflexible child-care arrangements.
The focus of the counselling is to work at a pace and depth that feels right for you in order to help you make the changes that you really want in your life. I am also able to work creatively if necessary: drawing, poetry, letter-writing and "emotional-literacy" cards can all be extremely useful ways of helping you to complement the words that you use and help you develop a more comprehensive understanding of your situation.
All contact, therapeutic or otherwise will be treated as strictly confidential: before, during and after the counselling has taken place.
If you feel that you would like to ask any questions at all then feel free to phone or email me, or use the "contact" page on my website. I will not try and convince you that you need counselling, however I will always leave the door open for you if you decide that this is what you want.
Training, qualifications & experience
Dip HE Therapuetic Counselling
My final two years of training involved working in The University of Bradford counselling service, providing counselling for both staff and students. The service is very well established and professionally organised. Whilst there I cultivated my style as an open, flexible and warm counsellor. I deeply enjoyed working with clients from a particularly diverse range of cultural backgrounds.
I also trained with a local counselling organisation which accepted private and primary-care referrals. I continued to work there as a professional counsellor and assessor before deciding to work independently as a private-practitioner.
I currently rent therapy rooms in Keighley and Leeds.
