Dr Michael Davey BA(Hons) Theology & Counselling, MBBS, FRCGP, MBACP
If you are looking for an experienced counsellor offering one-to-one sessions for a wide range of emotional, mental health and spiritual issues, then it is likely that I will be able to help you. I offer both short-term and long-term counselling depending on your needs and preferences. My style of working is both relational and integrative. The relationship between counsellor and client, along with the flexibility that integrative working provides, are widely held to be two of the most important elements for a successful outcome.
My special interest is working with people in professions where stress forms a part of the job. I was an NHS GP for 24 years, including educational and leadership roles, so I know first-hand what it is to work in a time-pressured, stressful environment. My counselling experience includes doctors, nurses, teachers, clergy and business professionals.
I have private counselling rooms in Central London and in Hillingdon, close to the borders of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, where I also offer outdoor 'walk & talk' counselling in the local countryside.
Additionally, I am on the staff of the St Marylebone Healing & Counselling Centre near Baker Street and I run workshops for organisations and groups on wellbeing issues such as resilience and self-care. I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, a fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and a member of the Christian Medical Fellowship.

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.
