Welcome to

David Phelps Counselling

A Place to be Yourself

Counselling and therapy for individuals in a safe, comfortable and private setting

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Wellbeing Counselling.

My name is Dave Phelps, and I am a counsellor in Redruth, Cornwall, and online with nearly a decade of specialist experience. My counselling gives you the space to be yourself and speak freely, with no fear of judgement. I work with all aspects of anxiety, depression, and other trauma-related issues, providing the space you need to explore these difficulties in a way that suits you. No issue is too small or trivial; your problems are valid, whatever they may be, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and ask any questions.

All first sessions are half price and available to both adults and adolescents. We can meet at my practice, speak online, or do walk and talk therapy. Home visits are also available.

How Sessions Work

I understand that reaching out for counselling in Redruth, Cornwall, or online can feel daunting, which is why I’m happy to have an initial 15-minute chat over the phone to answer any questions you have. This gives us a chance to warm up to each other and allows you to give me a brief description of your issues. We will then schedule our first session, where you’ll have the chance to speak freely about your problems, with me asking a series of questions to ensure we gain a clear picture of your current situation.

Our second session will be where the real work begins. By this point I would have gained a good understanding of your issues and the particular therapeutic approach best suited to helping you. We will always go at your own pace, ensuring you feel comfortable during sessions. Counselling can be done at my private practice – located at the Pegasus Men's Wellbeing Centre – or online, at your home, or during a walk in a park if you like.

My Counselling Approach

Over the years, I have learned a number of different therapeutic techniques, allowing me to tailor my approach to your specific needs. Every individual is different, and no one problem is the same. I will create the specific conditions you need to recognise and trust your human potential, giving you empathy and unconditional positive regard at all times. My role is to offer support, guidance, and structure so that you can discover personalised solutions within yourself.
