About David

My approach is all about empowering the people I support in the most effective way I can. I have for my entire adult life searched to find the most powerful ways to help people to have greater peace of mind, feel better in themselves, and to fulfill their potential.  In this search, I trained as a coach, and in a therapeutic approach that combined elements of psychotherapy with newer methods including mindfulness. In recent years my approach has been supported by two leading psychologists who taught me a new understanding of the mind and how people work psychologically.

Now the foundation of how I work is a new understanding of resilience and wellbeing. From my experience, there are explanations behind why some people are happy, resilient and successful or are able to heal physically, which can help us achieve the same things. This makes me very optimistic and even confident that people can change, move forward in their lives,  spend more time in better state of mind and think more clearly. I am based in Bristol and also work online via Skype or Zoom.

Through working with people from many different backgrounds, I have seen this approach enable people to have happier, more successful lives and overcome a whole range of challenges, including getting stuck in difficult feelings and thoughts. This understanding is known by different names, including the Clarity model, Health Realisation and the Three Principles. Dr Dicken Bettinger (one of the leading practitioners in the field) mentored me over a number of years and am now being supported in my development by Dr Keith Blevens.

“Having spent time with other counsellors and therapists and felt frustrated at lack of progress, David was a breath of fresh air. He immediately made me feel at ease with intelligence and humour, while challenging me to think differently. Working with David has had a positive impact on my life and I would wholeheartedly endorse his services.”
