Welcome to Flat Mountain Counselling and Hypnotherapy

Hi, I’m David. I am a BACP Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Counsellor.

If you have found yourself here today, you may be struggling with feelings of low worth. You may be experiencing grief, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, self-harm or have questions about your past or present.

Looking up at the mountain ahead of you can feel overwhelming.

Reaching out for help is a great first step in making a change.

I can help you to work through the beliefs you hold about yourself. I can help you to see how your beliefs – often established during childhood, and your past experiences can have a huge impact on how you feel about yourself, your relationships and your life today.

Your journey starts today.

“The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters.”
Conrad Anker

As a trained counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist, I use a range of techniques to help you to navigate and improve emotional and psychological issues. I will act as your guide, I will walk alongside you on your journey. My role is to provide the supportive conditions to help you to learn and grow, to feel empowered and to heal. We will take it step by step together.

I have clinics in Preston and Liverpool and offer daytime and evening appointments. I also offer telephone and online counselling appointments.

As sensitive topics are often discussed during counselling, counsellors are expected and legally bound to respect their client’s privacy and confidentiality.

If you have any questions about how I can help you to climb your mountain, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
