David Rouse - Integrative Counsellor in Spalding



I am an integrative counsellor which means that I use a person centred approach, integrating a variety of specific therapies. This allows you to explore your own conscious thoughts and find answers that will unlock your underlying difficulties and move forward with a better understanding of yourself.

Hello and welcome, I'm David, I wonder, if your feeling unsure, anxious, scared, angry, confused? All that can be hard to live with, on a daily basis, come and talk to me and we'll see if if its something we can work together to help you with.

I am a level 4 counsellor; I have trained for 4 years and I am qualified and registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and psychotherapy). I work within an ethical framework, building a professional relationship within the counselling room where we can work together. I have my own practice in Spalding, Lincolnshire and provide a safe and confidential environment.


I have had much experience with the Richmond project and Cruse, giving me experience and knowledge of loss, grief, bereavement, separation anxiety, depression, stress, loneliness, self harm, trauma and mental health, feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness.

I believe therapy is for everyone. You might seek counselling as a result of a crisis, or you may be encouraged by family, friends or colleagues. Whatever brings you to counselling, there is space for you here.
