David Forrest for Gestalt Psychotherapy in Lichfield and Nottingham

Personal Therapy   I offer psychotherapy for individuals and couples.  This is a humanistic approach to psychotherapy.


My work encompasses a wide range of issues of anxiety and difficulties, dilemmas and confusions.  Inclusive to this are matters of depression, loss, change and relationships.

We are all worthy and valuable and you are too, and also unique - there really is only one of you.  I recognise and hold respect for where you are in your own place in the world and work from your perspective.  Combining this with the perspective I can bring to our developing relationship that encompasses listening respectfully, patiently and reflectively with empathy and acceptance my approach is to help you to find your answers to the questions, confusions, and difficulties that have led you to this point and place.

 My clinical practice is based in Lichfield and in Nottingham. The cost for individual therapy is £50 per session.
