As this happens you will be more present, more resilient, and your spirits will lift.

Black and white David Bowerman; Therapist in Bristol

My approach is guided by two leading psychologists, and I often help people who are finding life difficult or struggling with relationships, anxiety or depression. During the sessions, you will also learn how to have new perspectives on difficult situations and to stop getting stuck in negative thinking. I work face to face or via Zoom.

The best way for you to understand how I work as a therapist and if I can help you is through a consultation.

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 human resilience and the mind more deeply.

Learn More About My Approach and Experience >

I trained in an innovative approach to therapy that combined elements of psychotherapy with newer methods including mindfulness. In recent years, I have been supported and mentored by two leading psychologists, Dr. Dicken Bettinger and Dr. Keith Blevens. My understanding of how people work psychologically has deepened; they have taught me how to more effectively help people change and support them as a therapist.

In my sessions, I draw on my experience of supporting 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 8 years as a therapist (6 in Bristol), 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 include those struggling with:

  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • depression and feeling down
  • anger
  • addiction
  • stress and overwhelm
  • relationship difficulties
  • have tried psychotherapy

“David has helped me see life in a completely different way. His very calm and sometimes humorous way of guiding sessions made me feel at ease completely. I’m so glad I found him to help me.” Lily
