Welcome to David Galindo Therapy

Counselling is an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts and feelings with a therapist in a safe, supportive, and confidential setting. It can help you recognise your own resources, gain a better insight into things, and clarify thoughts and feelings.


I practice a humanistic integrative approach to counselling having you as the centre of the therapeutic process, yet, at the same time, we will explore together how your life challenges are preventing you from becoming the person you truly are.

Humanistic Integrative Counselling in Finsbury Park

Welcome, and thank you for visiting David Galindo Therapy.

My name is David and I am an experienced accredited Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. Over the years I have helped a number of people who were struggling with life challenges overcoming their obstacles, feeling better about themselves, happier and more confident. Do you often feel like you don’t seem to be able to move on with things? Do you feel blocked, stuck or that life has become a tedious routine, and you have lost the lust for life?


We are all unique and so are you, you may feel stuck not knowing what to do next or may be struggling with sad feelings or depression. Sometimes, stress at work can make you feel on edge taking the joy in life away. This can leave you feeling very anxious, and relationships can become difficult and toxic.

I see you as the unique individual that you are, and I want to offer you a space for yourself in which to consider life challenges in a non-judgemental and safe environment. A place for you where you can talk frankly and confidently without fear with someone that is truly listening and will be there supporting you through the process.


I strongly believe that a close and honest relationship with your counsellor or therapist is essential for your therapy to have a positive impact. Therapy is often mistakenly thought as a long-term process that last for many years, but this is not always the case and this needs to be considered individually.

Sometimes, life can become too difficult.

Could you benefit from talking to some one about it?

Can Counselling Help Overcome Life's Challenges?

Counselling is an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts and feelings with a therapist in a safe, supportive, and confidential setting. It can help you recognise your own resources, gain a better insight into things, and clarify thoughts and feelings.


Counselling can help you increasing your self-awareness reaching a deeper understanding about yourself that can help you enhance your relationships lifting your self-esteem and confidence. It can help you regain healthy coping strategies. As a result, it can help you having more fulfilling and meaningful relationships, not only with others but with yourself.


Counselling provides stability giving you a regular date and time for you to declutter yourself from the everyday white noise that is preventing you from paying attention to what really matters in your life, yourself. This can help you feel more in control of your decisions and your life.

What Can I Help With?

You may be struggling with sleepless nights due to urgent worries, sometimes work can be incredibly stressful and relationships difficult and overwhelming. You may be feeling like you are losing your lust for life, as if you don’t enjoy the things you used to in the same way. You may be feeling sad and struggling with depression, the loss of a loved one, recently recovering from a breakup, or feeling stuck and not knowing how to carry on.


You may find yourself making the same mistakes over and over without even realising; counselling provides a safe space for you to explore situations and events with someone that will be supportive and will be with you through your journey.


Together we can explore what is going on for you and what is preventing you from building fulfilling and meaningful relationships. Counselling creates a relationship from which to focus in what really matters to you, helping you building the resources you need for the future.

I have experience working with a range of issues, some are:

Anxiety

Panic attacks

Depression

Obsessive compulsive disorder

Anger and mood swings

Lack of confidence

Toxic relationships

Emotional abuse

Sexual abuse

Low self-esteem

Dissociative and borderline personality disorders

Loss

Addiction

LGBTQ community

Low Mood, Sadness, Depression

Whether you are just feeling sad, or are experiencing low moods, are feeling a bit lonely or depressed, talking to someone in a safe and confidential environment can prove to be an invaluable support. You may be going through the motions experiencing a lack of confidence or low self-esteem, talking to a therapist may be just the support you need. Depression can be incredibly overwhelming and may make you feel hopeless or helpless. However, talking with a trained practitioner can help you getting through these difficulties.

Anxiety, Stress, Work-Related Issues

Do you find yourself often worrying about most things? Some fast-paced working environments can be very stressful and trigger our anxious mind. Technology has increased the number of people struggling with anxiety and mental health, you may find yourself experiencing panic attacks due to job insecurity, financial worries, high levels of stress, bullying in the workplace or even discrimination. Sometimes, an unexpected event happens and it is difficult to calm yourself and gain control of your frightening thoughts. Counselling can help you manage your anxious feelings, calming your mind and manage your stress.

Relationships

Sometimes you may be finding difficult to engage with people or finding a long-term partner. You may find yourself engaging in toxic relationships time and time again. Could this be something you have learnt early in life? A difficult upbringing or any kind of abuse being this emotional, physical or sexual could have a devastating effect in your future relationships. Counselling could be the perfect space to explore these issues, family or other relational issues that are preventing you from having fulfilling relationships.

Get in touch

I would like to hear from you and you can contact me by email, text or call me on my practice number 07903869670. If I am unable to speak to you, please leave a message or send me an email. I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours. Please, remember to check your junk folder if you send me an email and you haven’t received a response by then.

What Are The Next Steps?

I offer a 15-minute free phone consultation. This is an opportunity for us to touch base, and for me to learn more about what brought you to seek counselling. This can be very helpful for you to ask me any questions you may have and find out whether we can work well together.


If you decide to book an initial session after our phone consultation, this will be an opportunity to explore in a therapy session what your current situation is, what brings you to therapy and what you would like to achieve from it. It will also help us explore more thoroughly how we can carry the work together, it is important you feel comfortable, at ease and that you can talk confidently.


There is no commitment for you to continue if you are not completely comfortable. Moving forward, sessions take place every week on the same day and at the same time and it is your choice how long you stay in therapy as this depends on the nature of the issues you wish to explore.

My location

I practice from Finsbury Park when meeting for face-to-face appointments. The practice is a very short walk from the Tube station which makes it easily reachable from a number of surrounding locations and is only 10 minutes away from central London.


If you are travelling by Tube or Train:

Finsbury Park is on both Victoria and Piccadilly Lines and has direct access to some National Rail services connecting to the City of London.

If you are travelling by Bus:

W3, W7, B4, B19, B29, B106, B210, B236, B253, B254, B259, B279

From any of the above routes, the bus stop is less than a 5 minute walk.


If you are travelling by Overground:

The closest overground stations are Harringay Green Lanes, Crouch Hill or Highbury stations all are about 15 minutes’ walk from the therapy room.


In addition to provide face-to-face therapy I also offer therapy via Zoom or phone. I have worked very effectively with clients addressing some very challenging issues using both remote options and the outcomes have been very positive.

Fees

Therapy sessions have a duration of 50 minutes per session and have a cost of £60 per session.


I also provide a limited number of spaces to those on low-income or students, depending on availability.


At the start of therapy, I will conduct a full assessment with you, this can be completed in one session or over a few sessions.

You might not know, but you’ve taken already the first step …

Making the decision to start therapy, sometimes, is not as straight forward as it seems, and a lot of consideration goes into it.


I currently offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you finding out whether to start counselling with me it is the right decision for you.


Once we have decided to start working together, I’ll meet you once weekly on the same day of the week, at the same time.
