Counsellor for Brighton and Hove
Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on track again
Hello, my name is David Roberts.
I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor with the National Counselling Society and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. If you are thinking about trying out therapy for the first time or perhaps have had previous experience of working alongside a counsellor or psychotherapist, I hope my website will offer you enough information to awaken your curiosity about my practice. However, if you have any questions you would like to ask or just need a little reassurance before taking that first step then please do not hesitate to contact me, in confidence. I shall look forward to hearing from you.
I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I am a gay affirmative counsellor and psychotherapist, and experienced in helping clients with difficulties including:
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling and psychotherapy are talking therapies that are based upon a respectful and supportive relationship within agreed boundaries. They are not about giving advice or telling people what they should do to make themselves feel better.
There maybe times however that certain situations arise during sessions that require a more practical solution so we might use creative interventions in our work or discuss the importance of outside resources.
My counselling and psychotherapy practice for Hove and Brighton is for local men, women and couples who wish to enhance, understand and move beyond their current situation. Therefore I aim to offer a working and supportive environment that allows for an honest exchange of thoughts and feelings.
Notably, therapy is not a question and answer interview, it is so much more yet something not to be frightened or intimidated by. I believe we are all capable of change, in particular men who have struggled with the idea that expressing your emotions is a sign of weakness. What we don’t express, I might suggest, goes ‘underground’ but eventually will out either in mental or physical dis-ease.
Please contact me if you feel you could benefit from talking with a counsellor in Brighton about what is going on for you right now. It doesn’t have to be a particularly dark or unsettling subject, it could be a difficult work relationship or a recent traumatic event that you can’t seem to move beyond or maybe just a sense that something doesn’t quite feel right and you want to try and unearth what it is. There is no obligation and of course its just talking.
I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy in Brighton and Hove, close to Seven Dials, and within easy reach of Kemp Town.
