“ I was very hesitant about therapy. After meeting with David, I realized what a down to earth and approachable person he is. Would highly recommend it to anyone struggling or wanting to improve their mental state.” Alex 24

I can help you to change how you think, to feel more at ease and create a happier life. You will learn how to have a clearer mind and to think in more helpful ways about the challenges you face, your relationships, and the things that have happened. As this happens you will be more present, more resilient, and your spirits will lift.
During this process, I will teach you how to stop getting stuck in the same negative thoughts and feelings. You can also expect to gain a deeper understanding of why you feel as you do and how to create meaningful change . My therapeutic approach is guided by two leading psychologists and is focused on helping people navigate life more easily.

In the therapy sessions, we will work to first really understand what is happening for you, and then help you think differently and have new perspectives. We will explore what happens in your mind when you struggle and what happens when you are effective and feel good. Understanding this will help you struggle less and spend more time in a better state of mind. Together we would look at understanding human resilience and the mind more deeply.
I trained in an innovative approach that combined elements of psychotherapy with newer methods including NLP, and mindfulness. In recent years, I have been supported and mentored by two leading psychologists, Dr. Dicken Bettinger and Dr. Keith Blevens. My understanding of how people work psychologically has deepened; they have taught me how to more effectively help people change.
In my sessions, I draw on my experience of supporting people in many different circumstances as well as my own personal insights. I used to struggle with life and have overcome my own emotional challenges including anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Over the last 6 years, I have had the privilege to enable many people to do the same. This experience makes me very optimistic that anyone can learn to change and have a happier experience of life.
