About Me- David
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and an approved registered member of the Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP). I work from my private practice at my home in Blessington, Co.Wicklow and I am also a counsellor at VCS (Village Counselling Services) in Dublin where I have worked on a voluntary basis over the past number of years.
I successfully completed my counselling training in IICP in Tallaght, Dublin attaining a Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy and then completed a BA Hons. Degree programme in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy.
Drawing from my experience in working with people with a wide range of issues coupled with my integrative training, my belief is that each person requires a unique therapy that will cater for their own individual needs and wants and what works best for them. Based on this, I integrate various theoretical therapy styles that best suits each individual and their own particular issues and needs.
I am a pre-accredited member of IACP (Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) which is the governing and regulatory body for counsellors in Ireland and by whose code of ethics I am bound to comply with. I am fully insured as a counsellor to provide a private practice service within Ireland.
I provide a discreet and confidential service in a comfortable relaxed setting at my home. I also offer the option of online/ remote therapy using telephone or video calls. Confidentiality is assured and is in line with the ethical and practice guidelines of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I attend supervision on an ongoing basis as a profession requirement with a trained counselling supervisor to ensure that the competency of my work as well as ethical standards are being met by me.
The first time to visit me or to speak with me remotely will enable you to decide if you feel happy and comfortable to work with me. This is a free consultation session lasting up to 30 minutes and there is no obligation on you to continue after this if you decide not to do so. I can explain how I will work with you and we can discuss weekly session times to suit your schedule as well as fees.
Weekly therapy sessions after this will be one hour in duration. For some people, weekly sessions may not be either possible or necessary, and we can decide when we meet as to how to schedule sessions to suit your needs.
My fee is €50 for each therapy session and is payable at the end of each session
