London, Greater London
I did all sorts of counselling training in the context of my 40 years in the Youth and Community Services, including 3 years in Tavistock Institute, which included infant observation, but qualified with Psychosynthesis and Education Trust in Tooley St. near London Bridge in 2000. So I have much experience. I have now retired from f/t work, though still involved in some youth work training, having been a Tutor at YMCA George Williams College, so I am much more available. and flexible time wise. To be honest I do not see myself as a company, this is just what I do it is like a calling for me. So I offer a structure of an initial session (£20) to get basic details and check you are comfortable with me followed by 6 sessions (£40) with the last being and an assessment of where things are for you and if we end or continue? Another theme maybe spirituality and I am qualified in spiritual direction.

David Collander-Brown Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I seem to be a natural listener and enjoy learning about another. I have rich academic background now that informs and supports my counselling work, This gives a range of options to make use of e.g. Freudian or Jungian to Gestalt perspectives. Occasionally a client will find a book on my shelves which provides a focus of their reflection. Critical reflective practice is central to my way of working, along with humour where this helps. It is a deep delight for me to know someone moves on in their life being freshly aware of their inner blocks and able to use as stepping stones.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Some final sessions of the training gave help on developing a business so it is in my mind. But my prime focus is not on making money it is using myself, to help others take the steps in their lives to be happy and move on. Having said that like everyone I do need an income but I have found that being true to myself seems to bring sufficient money. What inspired me is seeing others grow and develop.
Why should our clients choose you?
If they want to have understanding and gentle care in exploring the direction of their lives. I can help them find ways to surmount the inner blocks that they find or the tensions in relation to others.
