My Approach as a Therapist.
I am a therapist who helps people struggling with life relationships or emotional difficulties including anxiety, panic attacks addiction, anger, depression and negative thoughts. During the sessions, you will also learn how to have new perspectives on difficult situations and to stop getting stuck in the same negative thoughts and feelings. You can expect to gain a deeper understanding of why you feel as you do and how to meaningfully change. Arrange a Free Consultation.
I trained at the Optimum Health Clinic in London in an innovative approach that blends elements of traditional therapy with newer modalities including mindfulness. In recent years I have been mentored by Dr Keith Blevens who has taught me to more effectively help people change. I also support people as a coach and with chronic health conditions. I often support people who are new to therapy or have tried psychotherapy before. I work as a therapist in Bristol and online via Skype, phone, or Zoom.

In the therapy sessions, we will work to first really understand what is happening for you, and then help you think differently and have new perspectives. We will explore what happens in your mind when you struggle and what happens when you are effective and feel good. Understanding this will help you struggle less and spend more time in a better state of mind. Together we would look at understanding how to be more resilient and to stop getting stuck in the same repetitive ways of thinking.

Experience as an Therapist
In my sessions, I draw on my experience of supporting hundreds of people in many different circumstances as well as my own personal insights. I used to struggle with life and have overcome my own emotional challenges including anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Working for the last ten years as a therapist and coach I have had the privilege to enable many people to do the same. This experience makes me very optimistic that anyone can learn to change and have a happier life. We can do sessions in central Bristol or online over Zoom or over Skype.
Some of the people I have helped as a therapist include those struggling with:

- depression and feeling down
- stress and overwhelm
- relationship difficulties
- have tried psychotherapy
- want therapy in Bristol
I trained at Optimum Health Clinic in London from the start of 2012 and qualified in late 2014. There I was supervised by the founder Alex Howard who blends elements of traditional psychotherapy with newer approaches including mindfulness and coaching. During that period I worked unpaid as a therapist. After completing my training I moved to Bristol and opened David Bowerman Therapy and Coaching.
Since then I have continued to deepen my understanding of psychology and have been mentored by two groundbreaking psychologists: Dr Keith Blevens (2017-2022) and Dr Dicken Bettinger (2014-2017). During that time I have gained a deeper understanding of the mind and how to help people change how they think and feel.
