"I couldn’t recommend David highly enough. He made me feel at ease quickly, as well as being very clever he also gave me a sense of being very compassionate and intuitive about how to provide an excellent service, and I felt like I could completely trust him. I never expected to feel as at ease in my life as I do now and I credit that entirely to David. "
"David has helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. When taking the step into therapy I didn’t really know what I was looking for. I just knew I wanted to find someone who I could trust with my deepest feelings and it’s pretty hard to determine that quality from someone’s online profile. That’s why reviews are so important. David really guided me into a new way of thinking about my own self and my own life. I shared a lot with him and he listened greatly in every single session. I chose to make David that one person I confided in through some of my roughest months to date and I couldn’t be more grateful to him for helping me rationalise and understand some of the out of character thoughts and actions I had & took. David always made me feel at ease which allowed me to open-up and be immensely honest and transparent with him, something I’m not really used to. I had my last session last week and I feel like a completely new and more developed person. The changes I’ve experienced in myself have positively impacted my home life, my work life, my relationships and most importantly my understanding of who I am. I plan to continue my journey of self-discovery (as it’s a long old one) but I will be asking myself the same questions David used to ask me & it’ll be by using these methods that I hope to discover more and more about myself. Thank you so much for every David, I can’t recommend you enough."
"I have had around 15 sessions and I feel I have made some good inroads into making some much needed changes. Dave's humanistic approach to therapy is refreshing and he was able to get to the roots of my issues quickly and more importantly, show me the logic behind certain thought patterns. I feel I'm ready to stop the sessions now, however, I have a feeling I'm going to miss it! "
"Being someone who had never been to therapy before, I was anxious about going. But from our first session, David made me feel at complete ease and listened with intent as he patiently guided me through some tough times. I value our sessions so much and genuinely look forward to them now. I am extremely grateful I was able to find someone so suitable on my first attempt, he has truly opened my eyes to the value of therapy."
"I had an excellent experience with David, who helped me get through a very tough stage in life. Feeling rather desperate at the time, I did not know how much change I could expect, but from the very beginning, I knew that I had found the right person. David’s advice and insight have allowed me to approach the situation from a different perspective and restored my belief in myself and my ability. The experience was truly transformative, and beyond anything I could have expected. David is a true professional and a fantastic therapist - I recommend his services most highly."
"Terrific listener. Very observant. Very understanding & patient. Has an incredible talent to make you feel human, and capable of doing anything you thought you couldn't do. Would highly recommend!"
"Felt comfortable and heard"
"Approachability and objectivity were important to me and my needs in therapy; traits that David holds strongly and I have wholeheartedly benefited from with our sessions. Being very easy to talk to, discussions with David are productive with a sense of genuine support and care. Thank you David. "
"David is an extremely welcoming person who made me feel at ease from the moment he began speaking. He is extremely easy to open up and talk to and helps you see your life experiences and feelings from different perspectives. Dave is compassionate, open, honest and has a wondeful way of making our sessions feel like a chat with a friend. He shows genuine interest in our conversations which certainly makes our sessions more meaningful . David has helped me a considerable amount in such a short space of time and i would recommend him to anyone. "
"David was very welcoming and really easy to talk to. He listened carefully and asked useful questions throughout. Even though this was only my first session, David gave helpful insights in response to the things I was talking through. "
"David is genuine and is clearly personally invested in me. In return I feel invested in being honest and engaged in our sessions. Rather than trying to hold things back, or manupultae our sessions, I find his open, honest, engaging and thoughtful manner actually makes me open up and be genuine. Perhaps for the first time in my life! "
"David is really approachable and makes an effort to understand your perspective. He is good at acknowledging your situation and providing guidance on ways to deal with situations going forward. David has helped me a lot and I would recommend him to anyone. "
"David quickly put me at ease, was attentive, non judgmental and provided a safe space to talk."
"Going through a period of 5-6 weeks of what seemed like hell and darkness, Dave really was the guiding light in my healing. As anyone should recognise mental health issues are not to be taken lightly and seeking help in any shape or form is the way forward. Dave combines his professional and self experience to provide accurate help. It's really differentiates in my opinion of the standard, especially coming from someone who has been seeking professional mental health for 6 years on and off. Mentioning earlier that Dave was the guiding light in my recovery; when it comes to things like this, you as the individual are the only person that can ultimately get yourself out of what you're feeling. That statement is certainly true in my case but what Dave provides is guidance in the sense of allowing you to recognise certain avenues and certain paths of thinking to challenge yourself and allow you to get on a path that you feel is comfortable to self healing. No doubt, I would seek help from Dave in the future, should I need it again."
"Had my first session with David. I felt comfortable talking to him. I am new to therapy and am looking forward to unpacking some of my issues with him. "
"I highly recommend Dave. He brings his heart and soul to his practice and is highly skilled at establishing authentic therapeutic connections with his clients. He is able to be fully present whilst in relationship with those he counsels which makes for a very real and meaningful therapist/client relationship. He has an ability to hold a wide range of emotions in mind having had difficult life challenges himself, which in turn enhances his ability to be be both empathic and honest in his therapeutic work. Dave has an excellent sense of humour and works creatively with clients, by accepting them for exactly where they are at, and challenging them to work on the parts of them hidden and thus assisting in the process of them realising their own true potential."
"Being sceptical about therapy after a few attempts I finally found Dave and now I am converted. Compassionate open and engaging are but a few words that spring to mind. I never thought that talking therapy was ever going to help but it really does and has. I believe it is all about finding the right person for you... not someone who sits with a pad and constantly asks “and how did you feel about that” while hardly making eye contact with you was my previous experience’s. I felt Dave really listened and heard me...I felt relaxed and instantly at ease in his presence which made the whole process easier to open up. I liked and trusted him and that for me is key. So thank you Dave you have changed my life for the better. I highly recommend everyone should have therapy as long as you find the ‘right’ person and as far as I am concerned that person is Dave."
