David Yates

Specialist in Personal growth • Addiction • Family dynamics • Relationships • Self esteem • Anxiety • Depression • Trauma • Loss • Mental health issues • PTSD • Adult survivors of childhood abuse



I work as an integrative therapist combining elements of person centred and psychodynamic theory. I very much believe that you have within you the potential to heal and flourish in ways you couldn't imagine. I work with clients of all ages around issues from self-esteem, family dynamics, relationships, career development and life/work balance to trauma, PTSD, loss, mental health issues , abuse and neglect. I originally trained in the addictions field and have an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling. While addiction is a specialist field, it plays into many different areas in people's everyday lives, and apart from substance abuse around drugs and alcohol, I work with clients around behavioural addictions from gambling, debt and the internet, to codependency and sex and love addiction. I would love to hear from you with a view to working together.
