Client Testimonials

P. and J.

“Following the discovery of an ’emotional affair’ our marriage was in serious trouble. We decided we needed help when it became almost impossible to communicate without an argument occurring. We found David online and on our first visit, although there was a lot of pain and anger, David made it possible for us to express what we were feeling – and the relief was enormous. David painstakingly worked with us through all of it – the blame, denial, guilt, shame and recrimination – and through his completely non-judgemental and cleverly constructed guidance we finally started to listen and understand one another. He showed us a way to begin to resolve our differences and forgive one another for any harm we had caused. His supportive and caring attitude together with his calming and ‘step-by-step’ approach enabled us to put the past behind us and start to build on the strengths of our marriage. Although we still have a way to go, we recommend David, without hesitation, to anyone going through emotional difficulties and thank him for all his help and on-going support.”

M. and A.

“When my marriage reached crisis point due to an extra-marital affair, it was difficult to know who or where to turn. I found David to be very approachable and soon felt comfortable to talk to him about words and feelings that are often difficult to mention. David made me feel so much at ease. Through a mixture of David’s own experiences, his listening skills and his therapies, I gradually began to realize how much I enjoyed my married life. I now appreciate so much more what we have together and the love I still have to offer my wife. I will continue to seek David’s advice and use the methods he taught me. I would recommend David to any couple who are faced with similar difficulties as myself.”

Tracey

“David has been an amazing help and support in my teenage daughter and I understanding one another a little better. I had reached breaking point with my daughter’s erratic behaviour and my ex-husband and I were becoming increasingly concerned about the direction in which her future was heading if this behaviour continued. We all agreed we needed some help in identifying what had gone wrong to enable us to make better choices. After finding David’s details via a Google search, I contacted him and made our first appointment. Immediately we each felt at ease with David and following the initial 30 minute introduction meeting my daughter trusted David sufficiently to confide in him, identifying a root cause to many of our difficulties. Through open discussion and practical exercises in active listening and anger management we were able to understand each other better and are now able to help one another during difficult times – rather than antagonise each other – by using these tools. During subsequent sessions, we not only continued with progress from the previous session, but also addressed issues that occurred outside of our immediate relationship as these were also relevant to how we interacted as a family. Thank you David.”

Ben F

“Through the talks we had, you’ve given me better insight into my thinking patterns and my behaviour and I believe you’ve given me a better chance of making better decisions in the future by making me have a better understanding of my behaviour. Thank you for everything. God bless you. I learned a lot from you.”

Louise C

“I felt I needed counselling following the death of my husband 15 months ago. Initially apprehensive, I was amazed at how easy and natural I found it to explore my problems/concerns. Further it was actually a voyage of self discovery. I learnt much about myself and bereavement and was able to focus my thoughts. I found David approachable, non-judgemental, calm, reassuring and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend his counselling service to everyone.”

David

“Dear David. Time with you has been a strength to me and an encouragement to my soul. I have truly received purpose and hope, and through your help have been touched by God’s grace and mercy. May God bless you for your valuable work at H.M.P. Littlehey.”

Gavin J

"Hi David. Just a little letter to say, "Thank you," for your help in this hard time for me. You made me feel comfortable from the very start. It was a big loss losing my dad but as you have shown me, we all lose someone and it's what we do after to make them proud of us. Thank you David."

Tony M

“I want to thank you David from the heart for your patience and understanding and listening to me each week. Our meetings were very beneficial to me mentally and I think without them I would have fell apart. I no longer have silly thoughts about calling it a day and life goes on and you have helped me through that David. I will always be grateful to you David.”

David K

“David was understanding and his personal approach and style was very focused on me committed to finding my own solutions and answers and building my confidence and self-esteem. It was very positive, very active and very proactive. It helped me to prioritise my life. David had a very good understanding of what made me tick and this was relayed in the recuperation process. I never felt alone through the sessions. I can only thank David. I now feel better equipped for ‘life’ and have never felt this happy with myself for a while.”

Clint

“I contacted David for help with some personal issues affecting my private life. I have never had or been counselled though when I first met David he firstly made me feel welcome and relaxed. He helped me identify my issues and gave me the counselling advice I needed to deal with them. The more I saw David the better I felt about myself and knowing that I could approach and talk to David about any problems I had. I highly recommend David’s services and can say he has become a friend although always professional. Thank you.”

Jason J

"I had a lot of issues and problems that have plagued my life for years because I was unable to talk about them. So, when counselling with David was suggested to me I was sceptical but willing to give it a try. Counselling has helped me to turn my life around because it has opened my eyes to the underlying problems and allowed me to move forward with a renewed sense of self worth. For a long time I was consumed with anger and resentment because I grew up without a father and so had a lack of self-worth. I found it hard to talk to anyone about my problems because I developed trust issues as a result of living such a hard life. I have since bared my soul to David and as a result I feel that I have unburdened myself of all the negative thoughts and feelings that have plagued my life. The positive impact that counselling with David has had on me has allowed me to move on with my life and I would recommend counselling with him to anyone who may be struggling with issues in their life too".

Kevin B

"I would like to express my thanks for receiving bereavement counselling from David. I was going through a difficult time, coming to terms over my only brother's passing. David restored my hope for the future. David made me feel and think more positively about myself. I was able to reflect and open up to David and felt afterwards a heavyweight had been lifted off me. They say a problem shared is a problem halved and that was true after seeing David. It not only has released a lot of grief but also helped with day to day situations. I would strongly recommend David's help to anyone in a similar situation. Regards and thanks to David and best wishes for the future. God Bless."

Jane B

“On first meeting David, I described my mind as a tangled mess. Having relationship problems, hindered by long-standing life issues, I was at a loss. With his kind, understanding and most importantly non-judgemental approach, I have learnt to deal with my emotions and problems in a more rational manner. It has been a difficult and painful journey, still ongoing. But no longer feeling worthless and having a more positive outlook, I feel able and strong enough to cope with my fears. Thank you, David.”

Les R

"David and his compassionate ways showed me how to overcome the pains I had held for years. Emotional struggles are never straightforward but with ideas, advice and guidance, I gained strength over areas of weakness and I now begin to strengthen each passing day. I give praise to David for showing ways how to deal with the unwarranted invasions in life to which I lived under the umbrella of darkness and shame. It is with true kindness that I say a sincere "Thank you" to David."

R and E

“When we first started seeing David we didn’t know if we were going to be able to work through the problems we had in our marriage. With David’s help we not only worked through our problems but have been able to lay a stronger foundation for which to build on in the future. David was always professional, understanding, friendly and positive. He has provided us with some invaluable tools that we now use on a day to day basis. We can confidently say that without David’s help we would not still be together.”

Ian I

“I often thought counselling was not for me. It’s surprising how quickly you can get bogged down with your feelings but since attending David’s sessions, it has made me realise just how valuable his service really is. I now feel that I can deal with problems in a more productive manner.”

K. and A

“After being married for almost 9 years, married life as we knew it had been struck with crisis and we did not know where to turn. After first trying another national counselling service, we found we could not “relate” to it at all! We found David through his website and have never looked back. Our marriage was on the rocks, but David’s approach to us and our situation was positive and encouraging and we found that we could relax 100% in his presence. He has given us priceless communication tools which we will use forever. Encouraging, engaging, positive, empathetic, sympathetic and professional are just a few of the words that come to mind when we speak of David. He has been instrumental in helping us help our marriage and we will be eternally grateful to him for that. Thank you David!”

K and P

“Prior to our meetings with David we were a broken jigsaw puzzle ready to be abandoned. David has helped us to put the pieces together and now we are a whole and complete picture together. Thank you David.”

Penny

“My experience with David was extremely positive. His welcoming attitude and room, followed by the professional help provided was priceless to me. I now look to the future with a smile.”
