Some comments from previous clients I have worked with:
I came to David for help, as I knew I was approaching a period of uncertainty and wanted some support in navigating it. David has been so kind, supportive and a good listener – I felt comfortable from the very first session. He’s been honest and encouraging – helping me as I’ve dealt with several big life changes – covering a range of different issues. David has also provided valuable insight into being a highly sensitive person, helping me to acknowledge how that may have affected me in the past. Importantly, he’s given me the resources and knowledge to go forward as a highly sensitive person and I feel empowered within myself to do so, something I did not feel before our work together. I would recommend David to anybody and know I would reach out to him should I ever need support again.
When I reached out to David I had already identified myself as a highly sensitive person. From one point of view I was happy to find out that there are others people like me, but from another it opened a whole new world of challenges. I was struggling with being overwhelmed by my thoughts, self-care and relationships expectations. David guided me on a journey, discovering how to quiet my mind and living in the moment, creating a self-care routine – which was non-existent – and accepting that not everyone around me is and feels the same as I do. I am deeply grateful for the work we have done together and it was nice to have someone to talk to. Thank you for all your support.
“I had been struggling in all areas of my life to the point that when I met David I had suicidal feelings and I had isolated myself as I suffered from social phobia. David was my last ace up my sleeve. In a relatively short time, I reached important milestones about loving myself, finding my identity as a HSP sensation seeker, and empowered to believe in myself and do what is best for me with no guilt about it. I’ll never be able to thank David enough for everything he did for me. I found myself, and I wish I could have had the braveness to go to therapy before”.
“I had a few tough months coming up, and I knew I needed some extra help to work through family dynamics. David brought new perspective, and he helped me focus on myself after a lifetime of prioritising everyone else. He was encouraging and supportive as he allowed me the space to process my thoughts and feelings. He was also quite informative about Highly Sensitive people, which helped me begin to understand my experiences and relationships with a new angle. I am in a much healthier place then I was, and I have far more tools at my disposal than I did before. Thank you, David.”
“After having therapy with many different therapists over numerous years, I found I had no problem talking about my past, but there was still a fundamental part that was missing. After being introduced to the idea that I may be a highly sensitive person, I sought out a therapist who would appreciate that during our sessions. David helped me massively, not only to continue with my therapy, but to view myself and my past in light of my heightened sensitivity. Having someone who knows what it’s like to be a sensitive person is so refreshing and it enabled me to view my trait in a more positive way, whilst being able to understand and how I can be and not to be so hard on myself. I can’t thank David enough for the help and guidance that has opened a door I was beginning to fear was closed. Thank you.”
“I saw David at a difficult and stressful time in our lives. David was able to offer a calm and non-judgemental approach, providing me with a reflective space to think about not only my caring role, but also other areas of my life. This support allowed me time to consider the impact my own stress levels were inevitably having on the person I care for, which in turn helped us work together towards a more balanced and life affirming day to day experience. I cannot thank him enough”.
” I came to see David in 2016 due to on going stress, depression and anxiety, mainly due to juggling family life, work and caring for a special needs child and a mentally ill Mum. After talking with David it became clear that my health condition was linked to a several experiences in my childhood that I thought hadn’t bothered me. I felt able to talk through these experiences with David and together he helped me deal with the emotions and feelings I was having. Thanks to David, I feel the happiest I have ever felt, I don’t let the past bother me any more as I’ve learnt that it only makes you suffer. I am much more confident, I no longer take anti-depressants and have finally got a plan of what I want to do in the future and am working well towards this. There’s no way I would have got here if I hadn’t been referred to David and for that I am eternally grateful.”
“I can’t thank you enough for listening to me with such thoughtful attention and great snippets of wisdom. You have helped me cope much better with my very difficult caring role and enabled me to think about my future in a more positive light.”
“When I first attended the sessions I felt overwhelmed by my emotions, David helped to guide me through, so I could put my feet back on the ground and start to work with what was going on for me. Talking to David was taking time for myself to look at my jumbled, negative thought processes enabling me to think more clearly and I am very grateful for that.”
