Therapeutic Counselling in Teesside and the North-East
My name is David Benjamin. I am a fully qualified therapist working in an integrative way. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). Based in Stockton on Tees, I offer confidential one-to-one counselling for issues including anxiety and trauma. Our sessions can be face to face or online via Zoom.
I am an experienced practitioner of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) therapy for dealing with trauma.
Adopted as a child, I've experienced my own attachment issues that come with adoption and relinquishment and would love to listen to you and work with you on your journey, adoptees have had a very unique experience regarding trauma which I fully understand.
I am the vice chair of my Local Authority Family Placement Panel and also a panel member for an Independent Fostering agency, where I also deliver training on trauma and therapeutic parenting.
I worked in the chemical industry for many years and understand the pressures involved in this and other work environments, and because of this several engineering companies use me with their staff as I can relate to the area where they work.
As well as adults, I work with young people facing challenges in their lives, especially teenagers who may have issues at school or home.
I will ensure you feel welcome and safe as we work together to find therapeutic solutions to whatever it is you are experiencing.
Contact me by email or phone and we can discuss your requirements.
