About me

David BoxwellI am a Dublin born counsellor/psychotherapist and consultative supervisor with a private practice in Pontcanna, Cardiff. I offer confidential one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy to adults (16+). My core therapeutic training is from a humanistic and integrative standpoint but my work is also influenced by psychodynamic, gestalt and CBT approaches. I have extensive experience in the field as prior to my move to Cardiff, I had a successful private practice in Dublin. In addition to my private practice, I work as a counsellor within the NHS.

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I also have an extensive background of working with large corporate/global multinational businesses so I have an in-depth understanding of the pressures of modern working life.

I work with some of the UK’s leading Employee Assistance Programme providers such as Health Assured and Right Management.

I am also a registered provider of psychotherapy for healthcare insurance companies including Aviva, BUPA, Pru Health and WPA.

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Consultative Supervision awarded by the University of South Wales and I am able to offer supervision services, working with both individuals and groups.

Please see the “services” tab for more details of the work that I offer.

I first met David when my wife suggested I spoke to someone with regards to some issues that we thought had stemmed from my being adopted. I was always apprehensive about speaking to 'a counsellor' but my first visit with David was very relaxed and from the moment I sat in front of him David made me feel very at ease with his calm and professional demeanour. After my initial visit I booked a further 6 sessions where David gradually deciphered where my demons lay. The sessions have changed the way that I look at stressful situations, it has made life so much more calm for me and my family. David conducts himself very professionally and has such a calm and peaceful manner that it is easy to discuss difficult issues. He just makes you feel comfortable and helps you to understand your issues. I can wholeheartedly recommend David's services
