Dead Account

14 September 2019

David is a really genuine and decent guy with a uniquely insightful perspective on a whole host of things. His sessions are very easy and comfortable and he does a really great job of making sure everything he tells you has relevance to you specifically. I personally was hesitant about doing sessions of this sort because of a preconceived notion of therapy as a very paint-by-numbers sort of affair that could be supplanted with some self-help books and youtube videos, but David really wrings the value out of the human element. There are things I learned from him that have already helped me purge stress and frustration from my life in a huge way and I hope I can take them with me for the rest of my life.Thanks David!

After six sessions with David I've lost all anxiety/anger, and don't drink any more. The best money I've ever spent.

I would really recommend anyone to go and see David if they are suffering with anxiety, or any other issue they are finding difficult to overcome. He really understands anxiety and has a light hearted and warm approach. More...

Having had sessions with David for only 4 months, friends and family have remarked on the positive impact it’s had on me. I first contacted David for help with anxiety and already feel so much more empowered in situations that would have normally sent me into a spin. His sessions are structured but informal with a two way discussion which I really valued. The best bit for me is that I have learnt something so simple but so powerful that I can build on myself as I go through life and have more experiences. I couldn’t recommend David and his work more highly. More...

I'm so grateful for having David help me through a difficult time in my life. Sessions are warm, welcoming and insightful. I immediately feel at ease discussing topics I no longer feel comfortable talking about with family and friends. His approach is professional, but he isn't afraid to interject light humour and personal anecdotes that immediately help break down any awkwardness or negative stigmas. I believe I've become much more mindful since working with David, and would recommend to anyone who needs a helping hand. More...

As a 24 year old lad,I was very hesitant about therapy as I didn't really understand it and how it worked. After meeting with David, I realised what a down to earth and approachable person he is. We can talk about literally anything at ease and have adapted the sessions to my daily needs. Would highly recommend it to anyone struggling or wanting to improve their mental state. More...

Leading a complex organisation with a large and diverse staff is challenging – David has given me new ways of perceiving those challenges and how to deal with them without undue stress or anxiety, giving me renewed energy, optimism and freedom to grow.

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. More...

I have always struggled to discuss my weaknesses and insecurities with other people. An anxious disposition and propensity to over analyze matters does not help either. David calm, understanding and sometimes lightly humored approach made me feel instantly at ease. I have felt calmer, more productive and more content within myself. I have David to thank for that.

During my final year at Oxford university I had to drop out due to severe anxiety and depression, after a few weeks of regular sessions with David I began to experience profound shifts in my thinking, well-being and resilience. With his help I was able to resume my studies the following year and successfully complete my degree. More...

Working with David has been incredibly impactful on me. He is constantly a calm, insightful presence, and is absolutely committed to helping his clients. Since working with David, I have found myself more able to live "in the moment", my negative thoughts about my career and being a musician have dropped away. In my piano playing, in particular, I was plagued with negative thinking and self doubt; David helped me see through my misunderstanding and find a more joyful, curious way of playing. A session with David leaves me feeling calm, secure, positive about life, and spiritually connected. Highly recommended! More...

David is great at what he does. Through first-hand experience and genuine empathy he creates a space in which people can truly be themselves. His passion for and knowledge of the Three Principles is impressive, and helped me get my head around some tricky thoughts and feelings. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking to get a new perspective on life and / or break free from habitual patterns of behaviour. More...

Q&A

I love empowering people to navigate life with greater ease and enjoyment. My aim when coaching or working as therapist is to help people be more resilient, have greater wellbeing and able to handle life's challenges more effectively. I especially love the work I do when someone who has been suffering with anxiety or depression is able to feel comfortable in their own skin and feel happy much more of the time. I also find it very rewarding when I enable people to fulfill their potential and move forward in life with a clearer mind and greater wellbeing
