Nelson Davis BA, Adv Dip Couns, MBACP (Accred)
It can be a huge step to decide to talk to a counsellor/psychotherapist about personal issues so it is important to find someone you are comfortable with, who will not judge you but accept you for who you are. I offer office based and/or telephone therapy.
In my experience as a therapist I have found that when someone senses that he or she is being listened to at a deep level in an atmosphere of acceptance and empathy, a very powerful and liberating positive momentum can be achieved. Therapy can be a journey. For some it can be a chance to talk about surviving abuse and trauma, providing a platform to gain more control over the deep seated emotions and issues that cause us the most pain and distress. Therapy can also lead to personality change helping us find better ways to deal with our day to day lives.
Anxiety and/or depression and relationship problems tend to be the most prevalent issues I deal with within psychotherapy.
I have years of experience working with addiction and substance misuse, however dealing with these issues has shown me that a substance misuse or a dependency is generally a coping mechanism or mask to other underlying issues.
I also have specialism, dealing with suicidal ideation, and helping families deal with suicide's aftermath.
I can help with concerns such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems or a sudden crisis such as bereavement. I can help with personality disorders, debilitating mental health issues including trauma and PTSD. If I feel I cannot help you I will try to find someone better suited to your needs.
Please feel free to ring, text or email me anytime, to set up an initial consultation so we can discuss your particular needs, and if you are happy to continue we can arrange appointments to suit you.
