"David changed my life dramatically. I had gone to a previous counsellor years ago and had a negative experience but David's kind, educated and honest approach was truly refreshing. My whole life started to turn around with each session that passed and I started to feel happy and content again. I now see my life in a completely different way. Life is great now thanks to David!" 

"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,"

"It is definitely worth the money"

Treatment Received: Counselling
My daughter undergoing enormous stress of Leaving Cert Exams. Advice given by parents is often not believed to be credible, Advice received from independent trained counsellors valued more by student so this is useful. Any assistance for teenage students facing this stress is worth the expensive fees.

Very helpful advice given by counselor. I have a strong daughter, facing exam stress which she wouldn't have experienced in the past. very expensive treatment.

"David is gifted at what he does."

Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
David is gifted at what he does. I walked out of my first session with David and felt hope for the first time in a long time that I could turn things around and live a more balanced and happy life. It was a massive moment for me at that time and it turns out my gut feeling was correct! The battle is never completely over but I am much better equipped to handle it because of my sessions with David.

Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
David is truly gifted a what he does. I received treatment for social anxiety. Before I went to David I could barely leave the house, with Davids help I am achieving set goals and doing things that I've put off for years. He's set me on the right path and ensured me that his door is always open.

Could not imagine going to anyone else. Have tried different therapists over the years but none have helped like David.

"The whole time I was with David during Counselling I felt at ease"
100%Reviewed 11 Sep 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Counselling
So it's taken me a while to write this review. I'm not a very "wordy" person and I was afraid I wouldn't do David justice. It's hard to write concisely what brought me to him in the first place. Let's just say I have been alone in my marriage for a long time without knowing it and something happened in my life which made me realise I needed to talk to a third party to get some help/advice to hopefully change my situation. David is not the first counsellor I have seen. I have seen 2-3 others over the past 5-6 years all about a variance of the same problem which is my marriage and trying to improve it. First up I only had 2 sessions with David. Not because I didn't want more but because I live overseas and saw him when I was home visiting family. I am his only international client! Ha! I am now back overseas as I write this. I went to my first session anxious and emotional. I left the session feeling hopeful. Through letting me speak and asking me a series of questions he concluded I was suffering from mild anxiety and moderate depression. I admit I was surprised at the depression bit but it actually made sense. He used some analogies to describe me which were spot on but I never realised. It was comforting for someone to understand, to get me, to tell me it didn't need to be this way, to offer helpful advice.

The whole time I was with David I felt at ease. He didn't judge me. He gave me a sense of focus and practical advice which I am slowly putting into practice. I am trying to give myself some me time. At one point he called me "The Roadrunner". I need to slow down and stop trying to please everyone else and look after myself. If mummy isn't happy then no one is. I would urge anyone who is having any issues in their life no matter how big or small to go see David. He can help. He is worth every penny! Thank you David for improving my life.

"I found my sessions with David excellent"
90%Reviewed 08 Jul 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Anxiety - Alternative Treatment
I was having panic attacks and anxiety and it got to a head and i was struggling. There were certain things that would trigger them and i could not understand why and i just believed that this was me. It came to a head on a dark november day and i believed that my world was closing in. I attended this clinic for some help and it helped me greatly. I would urge anyone with these difficulties to seek help

I went to this clinic after reading some reviews by other people, that were positive. i found David very professional and understading. He is very practical and works with you and gets you to work also. He dosent waste time and got to the issues at a pace that suited me. He also got me to think more and understand why certain things were happening to me, and how to prevent them. I found my sessions with David excellent as I was struggling at this time and was frightened.

"Most relaxing and comfortable"

Treatment Received: Counselling
So happy with the professional treatment I received from David. He not only helped me through a difficult time in my life but he gave me the skills to help my husband deal with a serious health issue at the same time. Without his help I would have handled the situation in a wrong manner.

David was recommended to me by another satisfied customer. He is a straight talker and I felt so at ease with him from the very start. His clinic is most relaxing and comfortable. I highly recommend him to anyone that feels help is required.
