My name is David Campbell, and I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Epsom, Surrey and online for both individuals and couples, giving you a safe, trusting, confidential place in which to be seen, heard, and explore the issues you are facing right now. Having spent many years in the corporate sector, I fully appreciate how difficult it is to effectively juggle the work-life balance and focus on the important things in your life like friends and family which can be left behind in today’s ever demanding workplace. My practice allows you a place to speak as freely as you like and get to the bottom of whatever issues may be troubling you at your own pace, from burnout to depression, stress and anxiety and challenging relationships at home or in the work environment.
If you are thinking about seeking a counsellor in Epsom, Guildford, Wimbledon, Kingston, Raynes Park, London or come from further afield and wish to receive support over Zoom, feel free to get in touch and we can set up an initial consultation.
I offer therapy and coaching, depending on your needs. I am qualified in providing psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on looking at the root causes of your current struggles by examining seemingly unconscious feelings and childhood past experiences. This can help gain insight into your current situation enabling you to have a better understanding of your past and move forward. This can enable you to move past more complex issues like stress, depression and anxiety. Many people who work in a fast-paced environment prefer a more solution-based, goal-orientated approach. The work I do is adapted to your specific needs, whatever they may be, in an empathic, confidential, secure space where we can stimulate “change through conversation and take action.”
I have continued my Counselling training to support my clients needs incorporating CBT into my practice. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) provides independent, evidence-based guidance for the NHS on the most effective, proven treatments. CBT is recommended in the NICE guidelines for many different problems, including anxiety disorders (including panic attacks), depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As a registered and professionally trained member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I always work in accordance with their ethical, confidential, and professional guidelines. I am also a registered and fully verified member of The Counselling Directory and regular contributor to their published articles. I work with people from all walks of life.

I understand that reaching out for counselling can feel a bit daunting at first, so you are welcome to give me a free, no-obligation call to ask any questions before we arrange your initial assessment session. This first meeting lasts an hour and mainly involves getting an overall picture of what brought you to me in the first place, what you want to focus on, and devise a way of working that makes sense to you ahead of scheduling weekly sessions.
Follow-up regular sessions are 50 minutes long and cost £75 for individuals and £85 for couples.
I fully support the NHS and as such offer concessionary rates for NHS staff and emergency services personnel. I also offer special rates for students
Want to know a little bit more about my background as a counsellor and psychotherapist in Epsom, Surrey, and online? If so, head over to my About Me page.
I have worked with clients online for many years, and in many Countries, but since then have increased the number of appointments I offer online due to increased demand. I use Zoom, and have found that working this way precipitates an extremely effective working method, allowing even the most anxious clients the opportunity to undertake counselling sessions with confidence. These sessions are a convenient alternative for those unable to attend face-to-face sessions. They are always conducted with complete confidentiality and with your well-being being one of the key objectives.
If you’d prefer to see a face-to-face counsellor in Epsom, I operate from a private study in my home – a cosy, completely quiet, secluded space where you can feel safe and speak about your issues in confidence. I also offer a limited number of home visits to those who would rather work in person but can’t travel.
As someone who spent decades working in a fast-paced, high-pressure working environment, I understand how life can become too much at times. People tend to ignore their needs and park their feelings which ultimately makes their mental health worse, but I am here to give you a space to focus on your issues, feel seen and heard, and receive the personalised help you need. My counselling and psychotherapy in Epsom and the wider Surrey area, and online is adapted to your needs, allowing you to move forward with greater clarity and confidence in the future.
I offer long term outcome driven therapy as well as time-limited therapy, which is focused therapy of up to 16 sessions. For time limited therapy we would agree a specific goal to work towards with subsequent weekly one-to-one sessions each lasting for 50 minutes.
Feel free to phone me to book an initial consultation session at a time that suits you.

I offer outcome based therapy for complex based issues like depression, anxiety, addiction, and relationship challenges whether that is at home or work. We can only truly move past them by understanding where they originate from and deal with them as they present in your current life.
This involves looking at past experiences and the emotions associated with them in a compassionate, empathic, non-judgemental, curious way, creating the right conditions for you to get to the source of your problem and see how certain triggers from the past directly inform how you think, feel, and behave in the present moment. In other words, we will not look at ‘how’ you can solve a problem, but rather ‘why’ it developed in the first place.
I have led a variety of different teams in the corporate sector including sales, marketing and senior management, and
as such understand the importance of giving people the specific solution-based help they need, which is why I am so passionate about delivering a dedicated coaching service for clients who might be struggling with the demands of the
business world. This is a chance for you to speak freely about the particular issue you may be facing. I am here to listen, understand your situation, and provide personalised guidance – making sure you feel supported as you work through the issues at hand. I also have experience of working with groups and teams who may be facing internal and external conflict in the business world.
Along with depression and anxiety, which many people struggle with in the corporate sector, I am also here to provide counselling and psychotherapy in Epsom, Surrey, and online for issues like low self-esteem, relationship issues, bereavement, or support for those living with diabetes or people who have experienced loss through suicide. See my Services page to find out more.

I went to see David for 4 months this year as I was having challenges rebuilding my relationship with my estranged son when I divorced from his Mother 16 years ago. This was a challenging topic to deal with and I confronted some raw emotions. David was very welcoming and kind. He listened intently and made me feel I could talk about anything which helped me with my feelings of guilt and despair.
I have worked with David for over 2 years and can say that I feel he has changed my life for the better. My boyfriend split up with me leaving me distraught and at my wits end. This impacted my ability to work properly and I found that I was drinking to excess and had to go on medication. David gave me the space to be myself, cry, feel angry and just look at things from a different angle. During our time together I was able to rebuild me, and look at ways to build new relationships. I have also significantly cut down on my alcohol consumption realising the answers were elsewhere.
Never met a person that makes me feel so comfortable in opening up and expressing myself to become a better person, fantastic at his job and a true credit to himself. I just feel much more confident and my anxiety is easier to deal with. David has shown he has a sense of humour and is a real person.
