David Gilmour from Recover Therapy. Psychotherapist & Counsellor in London & Kent.

Whatever challenge you're facing, however frightened, panicked, stressed, anxious, lonely, worried or sad you're feeling, I can put you on the path to recovery.

From tackling addiction issues to depression, relationship counselling to stress at work, I will be there for you every step of the way as you find a better balance and come to terms with whatever has brought you to this point in your life - letting you see how therapy can make that important difference to your emotional wellbeing.

My name is David Gilmour and as an experienced registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I'm passionate about finding solutions that will ensure you find inner peace. Over the last 18 years, I have helped hundreds of people address their emotional and psychological issues - and now I would like to help you.

I believe in building close relationships with my clients, so I will work with you at a pace that you are comfortable with, devising innovative therapy sessions that are uniquely tailored to your needs. With every interaction remaining private and every conversation remaining confidential, you can be sure that I have your best interests at heart - and that together, we will work towards achieving your ultimate goal.

Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.


Therapy takes many different forms. It can be used to treat a whole range of challenges including depression, anxiety and stress and it is a useful tool in tackling relationship problems, addiction and the consequences of divorce and separation. It can also be used to help clients come to terms with events in their earlier life such as adoption, or feelings of rejection, while many men find it useful when discussing issues such as impotence or 'weekend dad' syndrome.

Regardless of what you're struggling to deal with, I will use my psychotherapy experience to find the ideal solution to your problems. I was trained using an integrated approach, which means that I will incorporate a variety of techniques and theories to address the unique needs of every client, couple or family.

One approach that will almost certainly be incorporated in your treatment programme is psychodynamic therapy, which examines your past. Identifying key moments in your life, we will explore how these have shaped you to become the person you are today. This may well then be complemented by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is focussed on addressing and changing negative thought patterns and beliefs - things that may hold you back from overcoming your issues and achieving your full potential.


Just some of the services that I offer to individuals and couples are:


In the friendly and supportive environment, a group of up to 6 men can discuss issues they can't address at home. Issues may include:

If your personal needs aren't addressed in the above list, then please don't hesitate to give me a call to discuss your situation. If I can't hep you myself, then I will happily refer you to someone who can help you from my trusted network of experienced and qualified therapy professionals.

Group therapy is ideal for men. As many men find it difficult to open up, this is a safe way to explore how you are feeling, where everyone in the room can understand the stresses and strains of everyday life. With each course lasting for 10 weeks on a rolling basis, new members will be able to join the group as places become available.

Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.


I work flexibly to provide high-quality counselling and psychotherapy sessions. Depending on your needs, I will travel, but prefer to offer confidential therapy at my consultation room in Fitzrovia or at my discreet studio in Cranbrook.

For clients further afield I offer Face Time and Skype therapy appointments and I accept payment via cash or bank transfer. My cancellation policy is strictly 7-days-notice.

You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.


  • Our first meeting will take the form of a 60-minute assessment and is a good opportunity for us to meet face-to-face.
  • In a safe and confidential space (either my consultation room in Fitzrovia, my garden studio in Cranbrook or at your home), we will begin investigating why you're feeling the way you do.
  • During this time, we'll go over some basic personal details and I will ask you some questions to help me build a clearer picture of why you've come to therapy. If you are unable to meet up in person, then we can explore the option of chatting via Face Time or over Skype.
  • I will then advise you on the ideal timescale for your treatment. Normally I recommend an initial block of 8 sessions - each 50-minutes in length - though this can be tailored according to your goals and availability.
  • By the time we meet again, I will have formulated your individual care-plan. We will agree a target goal, and we will constantly review the progress of your sessions. If you feel you would like to explore other challenges, then we will work together to find the best course of action.
  • It is vital that my clients are able to trust me. As such, I can promise that you won't be forced to talk about anything you don't want to. Furthermore, if I can't help you myself, then I will help you find the support you need. Over the years, I have built up an extensive network of highly-skilled therapists with their own areas of expertise, plus a broad array of treatment and rehabilitation facilities. I have travelled to every facility and worked with every one of these people, making it my mission to understand exactly what they can offer my clients - so you can feel confident that you will always be in safe hands.
  • As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP), I believe that change is about process, and process is about the small steps we take. Within those small steps can come the biggest changes - get in touch with me today, and let me help you make that change.
