David Robert Lewis Parry
Hello I am David Parry and a BPS and HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist with over fifteen years experience of being a supervisor. I have extensive experience of working psychotherapeutically with people in the NHS, for charitable organisations and in private practice. I can offer you appointment times (including evenings and weekends) to suit your availability.
I offer a safe and confidential space where you can discuss your client work and any professional/training concerns you have.
During my career as a psychotherapist-counsellor I have worked with individuals and couples from diverse cultural backgrounds and from the ages of 13y to 80y. I have also worked with people who have physical and/or sensory disabilities; and as a group facilitator for MIND with men and women who are experiencing anxiety and depression. I also have extensive experience of working psychotherapeutically with people who have been diagnosed or labelled with:
personality disorder; OCD, DID, PTSD (related to, for example, road traffic incidents, being attacked, and being in abusive relationships) ADHT.
My approach to being your supervisor is to focus upon your needs and what you hope to achieve and experience from being in supervision with me.
In this endeavour I will share with you my pluralistic interest in psychotherapy and counselling which includes: existential-phenomenological; humanistic; psychodynamic; CBT; positive psychology; mindfulness; Polyvagal theory, philosophy and the arts. It also includes my own personal experience as a practising therapist and supervisor of other therapist's client work; my own vast experience of being a client engaged in my own personal therapy (both group and individual) and being supervised as an individual and in groups; and my own biographical experience of existing in this particular time and cultures.
I will share with you my experience of working for organisations and agencies and how to deal with complaints.
