John Spencer-Davis MBACP B.A. (Hons)
I offer a confidential, independent, professional and ethical service.
Come and spend some time with me to decide if I am the right person to help you.
If you are experiencing distress or dissatisfaction in your life in some way, I will listen to you and offer my assistance. I will provide the space and time for you to see and choose how to go forward. I will provide a warm and supportive environment in which you can be yourself.
Here are some issues with which I have experience and which are frequently brought to counselling. This is not an exhaustive list: please feel free to discuss your particular concerns with me, and we can decide together if I am the best person for you.
Relationship or family difficulties; emotional difficulties; sex and sexuality; gender issues; anxiety and / or depression; grief, loss, bereavement; divorce and separation. Substance misuse; dementia; carer's difficulties; career or work stresses.
At present I offer counselling only to adults (18 or over) and I do not offer couples or family counselling currently. Due to other commitments I offer evening and weekend appointments only. I am pleased to consider appointments at unsocial hours.
Training, qualifications & experience
