Elite Pro (3 Reviews)


My name is David and I am a therapeutic counsellor based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

What I do is called Person-Centred counselling. I work one-to-one with adult clients in a private and confidential setting. My aim is to offer a therapeutic environment in which you and I can work together, to safely explore any emotionally difficult and / or complex personal issues. Please note that I am not currently offering couples counselling.

By actively listening to you, and genuinely trying to understand and fully accept who you are, a therapeutic relationship can form. With an effective rapport established, in which you are neither judged nor pushed but instead supported and encouraged, you are free to find your own way.

Please visit my website for more information:

Please contact me if you would like to pursue the idea of counselling further.

Review of Independent Counselling: David Simon by David
5 31/05/2017

I was contacted by David Simon after placing a request for help on following a personal crisis. I was also contacted by several others, but I decided that the person-centred approach described by David was the most attractive sounding option at a difficult time. Five months on and I am still attending regular counselling sessions with David. Bringing the initial crisis out into the open by talking it through, and the perspective that this process offered, was extremely therapeutic. That particular issue soon diminished in its relevance, but the sessions spontaneously moved on to discuss much wider issues, some buried quite deep. I have found this to be an unexpected and rewarding consequence of the counselling. It has taken me some time to be able to talk about some of the issues involved, but reaching that stage has always ultimately been a positive experience. As much as the sessions can sometimes be challenging for me, it is also true that the discomfort has been outweighed by actual enjoyment, which is not something I would have anticipated from experiences with counselling earlier in life.

Independent Counselling: David Simon replied:
Many thanks for those words, David.

For some clients, only a few weeks of solution-focussed therapy is required. For others, like yourself, a journey unfolds over a longer period.

I’ve sincerely enjoyed our time working together.

David is a very friendly guy who does make it very easy for you to relax which makes it better for you to talk. Some of our sessions have run over the time limit but he does not just cut you off which is very nice. Feel much more positive in myself now from where I was. But deff worth a visit to David simon

Independent Counselling: David Simon replied:
Hi Scott,

I guess that my relaxed style is part of who I am – and I do try to be flexible about timing, etc., whenever possible. Really glad that the work you’re putting in to the sessions, and in between of course, are paying dividends.

Independent Counselling: David Simon Q&A

Company Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I suppose it must be the satisfaction that comes from helping someone to find that they have the ability to change their life for the better. Once people realise that they have the resources within themselves to grow and develop, it frees them to make further progress on their own.
When a client says: “Thank you” to me – that they can see a way forward or can cope better with a significant loss – then that’s worth all the study and training!
