David Cole, Counsellor and Psychotherapist

I'm a BACP accredited therapist with the experience to work flexibly according to your need, responding to a wide range of issues, both for individuals, and couples.   I can help you consider current problems, or go deeper to try to understand unconscious emotional patterns that may limit your enjoyment of life.

Safe place to talk

Experience of range of approaches

I am experienced in counselling a wide range of issues.  I offer 50 minute sessions, regularly each week, in a safe, confidential setting.  These can be for a fixed number of weeks, or opened-ended.  We can work out what best suits you, and revisit as required as the therapy progresses.  Together we can tailor an approach which feels right.  I can draw on experience of a number of helpful approaches, including Person-centred counselling, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic counselling, and Attachment Theory.

I provide an opportunity for you to be heard and understood.  Through careful and non-judgemental listening I try to appreciate things from your perspective.  You speak about whatever is troubling you and we develop themes together.  You may want help thinking about things from a ‘here and now’ perspective, or you may want to explore unconscious emotional patterns which may be keeping you from living life more fully.
