"Now I'm getting to a healthy weight and more importantly, I'm enjoying life again"
Clinic's favourite review
5 50Reviewed 25 May 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
A year ago I was on the border of being hospitalized with no insight into my weight loss. Now I'm getting to a healthy weight and more importantly, I'm enjoying life again.

It was hard at the start to open up but over time as the benefit became apparent. I looked forward to showing my progress.

"Treatment took 5 minutes to complete which gave me ongoing support through my journey to a life"
4.5 50Reviewed 16 May 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Severely underweight, struggling with an eating disorder and it's rigid routines, I had no quality of life.
Couldn't socialize where food was involved, Xmas was a nightmare, boyfriend struggled with my very low weight and protruding colour bones etc.

Concentration was gone and affecting my career.

After the assessment, we set straight to work. We identified the main components of my eating disorder and set to correct them from the first session. Treatment took 5 minutes to complete which gave me ongoing support through my journey to a life without an eating Disorder and all its difficulties.

My head is free now and no nagging voice to pound my head with.

"I can enjoy meals with family and am like a new person"
5 50Reviewed 12 Dec 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Eating Disorders - Alternative Treatment
On the 15th July 2016 I made a phone call that changed my life. I did not realise that I had lost my life to an eating disorder. I knew that something was wrong I just didn't know what. After encouragement from my family to seek help I reluctantly looked for a number. I called David and he picked up. I briefly explained why I called and David was so kind and was ready to help me as soon as I could get to him. He understood more than I did the enormous courage it took to take this step. I walked into his office that first day and did not know what to expect. This was not my first attempt to get help. David was open and honest he explained what he does and what he expects of you. I was scared I had been in the depths of despair for so long. I was clinging on to life literally I was so ill and I couldn't see it. If you are looking for help to beat an eating disorder you are going to the right person. I was not aware what the eating disorder had done to me. I couldn't go 5 minutes without thinking about food how to not eat how to not put on weight. I couldn't sit down for more than 2 minutes without thinking get up your lazy your fat when I was seven and a half stone. I had no energy none of my clothes fit and I literally was chocking with anxiety every time I ate. For the first time in years I was honest with someone about what I was doing. I felt I could trust David. He listened and discussed how he would help me to fight this awful illness. It was going to be six months of intense cbt based therapy. I would have to be totally honest and accountable to David for what I ate and did. I'm not going to lie and say it was easy because it was the hardest thing I had ever done. I wanted to get better but I literally had to fight myself every minute to get there. I could not have done this without David. There is no judgement just clear and honest support. David only asks one thing that you show up. Keep showing up. For six months I showed up and bit by bit I started to come back to life. In July 2016 I was 29 and scared of chocolate, pasta potatoes pretty much living on ham, porridge, gluten free bread. I was coeliac (out of convience) lactose intolerant. It's now December I have a new lease on life . I can enjoy meals with family and am like a new person, I stood on the scales and was disappointed I hadn't put on more weight: I was a shadow person when I called David. Six months later I have my life back and I have David to thank for that. If you are scared lost and like me the living dead stop and call David it's going to be hard but nothing is harder than making that call because you are ready the person on the other end of the phone is going to wake you up and give you back your life. Make the call and save yourself.

"I felt I had finally met someone who understood me and my condition"
5 50Reviewed 23 Mar 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Eating Disorders - Alternative Treatment
Thank-you David - For the first time in a long time i feel like my old self again, After years of medical intervention and lots of telling myself " I dont need help - sure I'm fine", I was constantly ignoring what was going on for me and just getting on with it ( As we do !) - Thankfully somewhere in there I picked up the courage to call David & make an appointment , I was a nervous wreck dialing his number, but from the moment he answered I felt at ease - from there on began my road to recovery.
At my first meeting with David I felt i had finally met someone who understood me and my condition, I walked out of his clinic feeling confident with his help i could win the battle with my eating disorder, The road was often very difficult, emotional and draining but the end results are well worth the work and commitment required,
I'm a much happier & stronger person as a result , My eating habits no longer control me and life in general is good - i know David is at the end of the phone if needed and i would have no hesitation calling him for any problems / issues that may arise for me in life - I highly recommend if you are struggling - you pick up your phone and call him - You will have no regrets !

"I'm back in control of my life ! " - I'm so happy i picked up the courage to ring and make an appointment, I have no regrets. From the moment i met David i felt confident i could win the battle i was trying to fight alone !

"I am extremely grateful"
5 50Reviewed 01 Feb 2014 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Counselling
For the first time in several years, I really feel that I am on the road to transforming my life and this is down to the wonderful guidance of David. Having attended other counsellors in the past, this is the first time I have actually perused sessions and I realize now that this is mainly down to David and the comfortable, warm and empathetic environment he creates. David is highly professional in his teaching, from which I am learning useful and realistic techniques and strategies to apply to my everyday life. David shows a genuine interest and concern in his clients and he too does his homework between sessions and for this care and attention I am extremely grateful. I would highly recommend David to anyone seeking help, advice and guidance. I can finally see a brighter future ahead.

Treatment Received: Genetic Counselling
I was very happy with my sessions with David. I wasn't sure whether I would find a solution to my issues but after a couple of sessions I was amazed at the difference, It was very helpful that David was a great listener and would encourage me to make changes to improve my situation and encourage techniques for long term benefit. I felt very comfortable from the first meeting, was made to feel at ease and never felt foolish about anything I needed to say. All in all, he has made a lasting difference to my attitude to life and its problems,

"Feeling great"
5 50Reviewed 30 Jan 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Counselling
David was very helpful in my mission to overcome worries I had been faced with. He listened carefully and remembered everything I said to him while taking notes and commenting on what I had said in previous sessions. This immediately made me feel like it was no longer something I had to overcome but something both David and I would work together to get to the bottom of. Feeling great now and would recommend mind and body solutions to anyone in a similar situation!
