I'm David Whistance. An experienced, accredited counsellor based in Southampton, I offer counselling, stress management support and holistic coaching.

Happy to work with you face to face and online.


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 emotional processes we can all get lost in could help you move from confusion towards clarity. More >


A trusting space to talk things through is vital but we can also use creative methods to help slow things down, clarify what's going on and open up healing possibilities. More >


Regularly practising practical mindfulness and other stress management methods could help you bring more balance, calm and wisdom to your life. More >


I also offer careers guidance and strengths coaching. Let's see if we can discover and nourish inner qualities that could help you move in a more fulfilling direction.

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 £40 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.
