Firstly, thank you for visting my website, as a person who has suffered with mental helath issues myself, I know how hard this first step can be.
My name is David Phelps, I am a person-centred counsellor, specialising in all aspects of anxiety (Generalised Anxiety Disorder, OCD, panic attacks, phobias etc.) I also specialise in all aspects of depression (clinical, bipolar etc.) and addictions. I also have extensive knowledge in many other varied issues - please see list below.
I have a higher graded degree in Psychology and a Level 4 Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling.
The person-centered approach helps both you and I learn to recognize and trust human potential, providing you with empathy and unconditional positive regard to help facilitate change. I avoid directing the course of therapy by following your lead whenever possible. Instead, I offer support, guidance, and structure so that you can discover personalised solutions within yourself.
When needed I integrate other aspects of counselling to tailor my approach to your specific needs.
