David Mayes


About Me

Hello there, my name is David, I am counsellor licensed in the UK with over 4 years of experience. I have worked with a diverse range of clients with many varied concerns such as depression, stress and anxiety, substance misuse and addictions, bereavement and loss just to name a few both short and long term with experience working via video chat and over the phone. I have also helped people with relationship/sexuality and trauma/abuse.

My therapy style is first and foremost welcoming, friendly and easily approachable. This allows my clients to feel at ease which allows them to open up if they so wish. I honestly believe in treating people politely and respecting everyone's individuality. My approach is humanistic which means that I am genuine and empathic.

I respect the courage it takes to enter therapy and want to make a change in your life and am here to aid you in that endevour. Together we can bring about a real and lasting impact. I believe in empowering my clients on their journey to becoming the best possible version of themselves.

Would love to hear from you, having the chance to enter into your life and work with you.

David is an empathetic and intuitive person who is really easy to talk to. There have been multiple occasions where he has provided useful insights into issues I've been struggling with, which have really helped me to get to a better headspace. I highly recommend him!

Working with David the past few months has been so insightful and helpful, not only giving me the space to work through my thoughts and emotions but also there for a good pick me up chat as well if required! Connecting the dots between problems past and present as well as unpacking big things changing in my life was all super helpful.

The difference therapy has made personally has been really great and that’s all thanks to David working with me so cannot recommend enough!

Really enjoying my sessions with David Mayes, great listener and offers insight into problems I have without judgement. From the get go he's been really easy to talk to and actively engaged in what I'm saying.
