I’m Davy. A qualified counsellor here to help you with whatever you’re going through, work things out for the better and find some freedom.
I provide a service which is affordable and accessible to as many people as possible and operate a means-related scale of charges.
I'm fluent in BSL and happy to work with Deaf and Hearing.
If you would like to find out more or just talk please get in touch by phoning or texting my number above or click the 'message me' button above.
If you leave a message or voicemail I'll get back to you within 24hrs
To begin we'll have a chat about what you hope to get out of counselling and agree whether we want to arrange a first session.
At the first session we'll discuss how we could work together, how often and decide if we should arrange any more sessions.
You have some options of how we can work together, using video (Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp), telephone or text. Your choice.
I'm flexible on when we can meet. Weekdays, Weekends, Daytime and Evenings are possible.
Wherever you’re from, whoever you are, you’re welcome. I won’t judge you or discriminate on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, culture, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
I work to Professional standards within an ethical framework that puts you first and honours your privacy and confidentiality. I value honesty and integrity.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
