Dr Michael Davey BA(Hons) Theology & Counselling, MBBS, FRCGP, MBACP
If life feels like a struggle, with painful thoughts and feelings from which you cannot escape or are exhausted fighting back - call me. I can provide you with a calm, peaceful sanctuary away from the stress of life to find yourself & be empowered.
I am an experienced counsellor offering one-to-one sessions for a wide range of emotional, mental health, relationship and spiritual issues.
My area of expertise is working with people in the health professions where stress forms a part of the job. My counselling experience includes doctors, nurses, teachers, clergy, business professionals, musicians and students.
I offer both short-term and long-term counselling depending on your needs and preferences. My style of working is both relational and integrative, two elements which are widely held by experts to be important for effective counselling.
Currently, I am doing all of my counselling work on-line. Additionally, I have private counselling rooms in Regent Street and in Middlesex, close to the borders of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, where I also offer outdoor 'walk & talk' counselling in the local countryside.
In addition, I am on the staff of the St Marylebone Healing & Counselling Centre near Baker Street and I am the appointed counsellor to the students at the London School of Theology.
In my capacity as a wellbeing coach I run workshops for national and local healthcare organisations and groups such as the Practitioner Health Programme, on wellbeing issues such as stress, burnout, resilience and self-care.
I am a member of 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.
