The time I spent with David was a real learning experience. Feelings sprang up from nowhere. The counselling helped me realize where some of my deep emotions sprang from. I have a clearer understanding of myself and feel ready to take the next step. I felt very cared for and very safe in expressing myself with David. He was very sensitive to my needs…. It felt good to have someone care about me.
…I thank you so much for the healing I have done with your help.
David helped me understand my feelings better during a transition period…(he) is very compassionate. He cared about how I was feeling therefore I felt safe in opening up…
The counselling was valuable for me in assertion, risk-taking, being less paranoid, and dealing with feelings. David was great – great listener…and completely non-judgmental.
I made a verbal contract with David about how I needed to feel my feelings instead of getting lost in my head. I was impressed with how well this worked for me and I was able to get to some really painful childhood memories that allowed me to heal or begin to heal—up until then I just kept refreshing the same old hurts. The work with David helped me to feel the pain I have inside of me. I must have been ready…. Instead of talking on and on David gently drew me back to become aware of what was happening in my body with my feelings and emotions…. David was an example of how healthy men can be in my life. Thank you David.
The counselling process far exceeded my expectations. The counselling helped me through a transition period. I felt heard and understood…. David is a very respectful and gifted counsellor! All sessions were conducted in a professional manner. I feel very lucky and glad to have had him as a counsellor!
The counselling process was very valuable…. It helped us focus on the issues we needed to work on, and to connect on many different levels—emotional and spiritual—helping my husband and I communicate/express what was going on for us…. Making a positive and warm connection with David was very worthwhile…. We both felt very heard and understood…. If I didn’t understand David, he would explain himself in a professional and personable manner…. We felt very comfortable with David right away.
