Counselling and Psychotherapy in Carlisle

I work both online and face to face with individual adolescent and adult clients, couples, families and groups. I use a teleconferencing software called Zoom and, when working face to face I am maintaining some anti-Covid19 procedures. I have considerable experience of using online platforms for counselling and psychotherapy over a number of years and have also completed and signed up to the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy’s Covid-19 Online Working Guidance.

About Counselling and Psychotherapy in Carlisle

My name is David Gibbons and I am a Contractual Trainee in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. At my Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice in Carlisle, I offer you the opportunity to talk about things that you find difficult in life and in relationships. I offer low cost emotional support and practical help to enable you to understand and as a result overcome some of life’s difficulties.

I work both long and short term with adult and adolescent men, women and couples. My main training is in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, but I have also trained in counselling for children and adolescents. Also I am trained in working with severe and complex traumas and suicide.

My Therapy room is a comfortable, private, confidential, safe and supportive space. You can bring any issues, worries, concerns here. Only you know what life is like for you. However, If you choose to come to therapy, I will work empathically alongside you. As a result, I will help you make a space in which you can explore the changes you would like to make. Following this you will be able to put change into action at a pace that is right for you.

If you would like to book a half price consultation, email or phone me on 07976 667280 or get in touch via the form on this page.
