I'm David Whistance. An experienced, accredited counsellor based in Southampton, I offer face to face, video and phone counselling.


If you're stuck in upsetting emotions, thoughts and habits, counselling could help you nurture a more helpful, kind and aware way to paddle your canoe.


Being listened to, mindfully exploring and gently untangling the deep emotional processes that we can all get lost in form the bedrock of my approach to therapy. More >


I use creative methods to help slow things down, clarify what's going on and open up healing possibilities. More >


You may wish to learn practical mindfulness and stress management methods to cultivate inner balance. More >


I also offer careers guidance and strengths coaching. May you find many enriching things!

It's good to talk

Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to arrange a free 15 to 20 minute phone or video call or a £30 first appointment of up to one hour to see if we could work well together. While my standard fee is £50, we may consider both concessions and higher fees within this sliding scale.
