David Wrenn, Dip.Couns, BACP
We all need help during troubled times, to seek support when feeling overwhelmed, stuck or anxious. Perhaps previously reliable coping mechanisms aren't doing their job as well as they used to, or recent events have precipitated a feeling of crisis and life being 'out of control'.There could be some long-standing issue which requires attention.
Whatever has brought you to consider counselling, I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and empathetic space where we can explore where you are in your life and where you would like to be.
I work collaboratively to help you gain insight and awareness into what might be the blocks to living life how you would like to, and help identify your own resources for growth and greater connection with yourself and others.
My training is Integrative, which means I draw on several approaches depending on what I think is appropriate.
I have training in Person Centred Counselling, Body Psychotherapy, Attachment based therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and CBT, and have worked extensively in a service specialising with bereavement and loss. I work with individuals, usually on a weekly basis, who seek support with issues such as depression, disassociation, suicidal thoughts, stress and anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, addiction, abuse, family issues, anger, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement. I also have an interest facilitating men finding their way towards healthy masculinity.
My approach to therapy is relational, and honours difference and diversity in background, culture, spirituality and sexuality
I have a keen interest in the healing potential that comes with growing plants and spending time in nature, and I’m acutely aware of our shared ecological crisis and the affect it has on all of us, consciously and unconsciously.
I recommend starting with an exploratory session so that we can talk about what you'd like to get from therapy. If we're both happy to continue we can arrange further sessions.
I usually work and in an open ended way, though sometimes a shorter period of counselling is appropriate. We can consider this option if a more solution-based approach is needed instead of a longer exploration of deep-seated issues.
