Mr Dale Mitchell

Member Status: Accredited Professional

Member No: NCS19-08271

Location: Derry

I am a Social Psychology graduate since 2004 and a qualified, accredited Integrative Therapist since 2011 having worked in Health & Social Care for over a decade. I am also a registered member of BACP and am experienced working with all adults, young people and children.

Additionally, I have extensive experience working with adults & children on the Autistic Spectrum having worked with, managed & developed tailored innovative services for individuals and groups on the Spectrum since 2004. In 2018, in the role of specialist consultant, I worked in partnership on the successful tender for the creation of the business plan for Derry & Strabane District Council to become Autism Friendly.

In addition to my Private Practice, I continue to work passionately in local primary/secondary schools and in the community as an Associated Therapist with several local Counselling & Psychotherapy centres, providing therapy to both neurotypical and neurodiverse adults and children. Due to this, I have gained extensive experience working with many challenges such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, impacted self esteem, relationships, bereavement/separation & loss in addition to daily stressors and personal development.

My integrative practice is flexible to the unique needs of every individual. I strive to provide a service that can help to facilitate therapeutic change within a safe, accepting, non judgemental environment and celebrate the beauty of diversity and the uniqueness of everyone I work with.
