Counsellor/Psychotherapist for Kensington and Central London.
Are you looking for a confidential safe space where you can talk to a trained professional at a mutually agreed time on a weekly basis?My name is David Bellamy and I am a counsellor based in Notting Hill, Kensington and Chelsea, CentralLondon. I have 20 years experience working with a wide variety of clients from different backgrounds and with diverse problems. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment and a comfortable private setting.[see above].
The purpose of the work.
I work with both 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. This includes working alongside you to help resolve current problems and to make sense of whatever may be happening in your life.
What I Offer.
You may want to look at unresolved issues,old wounds,or any strugglesor challenges you are experiencing.
I can offer perspective,feedback and an opportunity to understand more fully who you are and to make sense of life.
I offer you an opportunity in a supportive environment to look deeply and realistically at all aspects of yourself-body,mind,feelings,spirit including relationships with others and decisions about life and work.
We do this in the hope that it will make life more fulfilling and help to enhance our lives and the lives of others.
The aim of therapy is to aid people in problems of living,to increase their sense of well-being and reduce their subjective sense or dicomfort or distress.
I began my professional life working with children 0-16 years old and their families in North Kensington in various settings.This,I believe is the groundwork for psychotherapy as child/human development is the base for many counselling theories.It was also an invaluable introduction to working with people from all ages, backgrounds,and life experiences within my own varied community in West London.My current practice as a counsellor/psychotherapist is in North Kensington close to central London. Alongside the above I have worked in the HIV /Aids field for the past 25 years in both individual and group settings with a diverse set of clients. For nine years I worked as a lecturer facilitating students who wished to train as counsellors.
