    David is passionate about providing counselling that empowers his clients to make genuine and long-lasting positive change in their lives. Even if a client feels stuck in unhelpful or destructive patterns, David helps them to develop a genuine understanding of their circumstances and options in moving forward. He is insightful, caring and outcome-focused – he supports clients with practical guidance and effective strategies to address their concerns.

    David is committed to helping his clients discover an achievable way forward that improves psychological wellbeing, relationships and family life.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    “I was distraught when my wife and I came to David. My wife seemed ready to leave me and I had no idea why. David was able to help us discover exactly what the issues were, and how we could overcome them. He provided a supportive, non-judgemental environment, yet didn’t avoid the tough issues. He restored in me a sense of perspective in what was going on, and empowered me to do all that I could for positive change. Today my wife and I are enjoying a marriage better than at any previous time, knowing that our time with David has also enabled us to make sure we never end up in the same situation again. My sincerest thanks David for helping us to hold on to the most precious thing in our lives”.
