About me

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 an affordable & accessible service operating a means-related scale of charges.

I'm trained in cross-cultural issues.

I'm LBGTQ+ aware and friendly

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 try to 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 and how we can talk. 

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.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
