My name is David Hutchinson and I live and work in the Wakefield/South Leeds area.  I have been a person centred counsellor since qualifying seven year ago and since then have gained a vast amount of experience working in private practice and also for:

Riverside ECHG - Counselling clients with a vast amount of issues relating to their homelessness

Riverside ECHG - Counselling clients fleeing domestic violence

Leeds MIND - Counselling clients with differing complex issues

Yorkshire MESMAC - Counselling gay, bi-sexual men, men who have sex with men, lesbian and trans people.  Also the female partners of men who have sex with men.


I work in a person centred way both in my counselling practice and also my supervision work.

The person centred approach is based on:

A deeply held respect for the individual.

The belief that the relationship between counsellor and client is central to the healing process.

A belief that the client is the expert on their life and will know how to help themselves (albeit unconscious).


My qualifications for the purpose of counselling and supervision are:

CSCT Certificate in counselling skills - 1999

University of Bradford - Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and Human Relations - 2005

Leeds Metropolitan University - Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Counselling - 2008

Temenos College - Postgraduate Certificate in Person-Centred Supervision - 2010

I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist. 

Also on the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKRCP) Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist
