Hello. I am David.

As a therapist, I believe in the ability of individuals to heal and better their lives, transforming difficulties, trauma, and anxiety into personal insight.

I offer integrative psychosexual and relationship therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I use different approaches from a variety of therapeutic models to suit your needs so that you are able to walk your own path towards self-knowledge, understand your current emotions and behaviours and gain insights about the influence of past experiences, family and society.

Over the last 12 years, I have helped hundreds of men and women to transform their personal lives through deeper awareness of themselves in interactive workshops, group facilitation, meditation sessions, social work delivery and one to one/couples therapy. Before becoming a therapist I worked in the Social Services field in different roles supporting vulnerable adults, families, and professionals.

I offer face to face sessions near King Cross St. Pancras and online therapy in English and Spanish. I work in a diversity-affirmative way with people from different backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities.
