Dave has been involved in supporting and helping people to recognise and move towards their potential for almost 20 years. Through his employment in youth work, mentoring, training, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and counselling, he has developed a passion for seeing people grow.

Dave has experienced a number of significant challenges in his own life. With the support of some skilled counsellors, he has leant into the discomfort of these situations and emerged as a stronger, more compassionate and well rounded person who has an understanding of what really works in therapy. 

Feeling stuck or desiring lasting change, Dave will journey with you to see the change that you want to see in a warm, caring and nurturing environment.

  • Addiction (substance, pornography, work)
  • Significant life changes (career, relationships, health issues)
  • Leadership challenges
  • Blocks to action
  • Low self-esteem
  • Anxiety
  • Depression


Kate is passionate about helping people to be the best version of themselves. She has extensive experience working with children and young people through different points of contact, including children under the guardianship of the minister. Kate is currently providing counselling to clients in drug and alcohol rehabilitation and through this work, her belief in people's ability to change their lives, has been shown. Kate works from a foundation of believing that everyone has the capacity to make changes and redirect their lives with the right supports in place. 

Over many years, Kate has supported people in their parenting journeys and the many challenges that can bring.

Through her own personal experience and the experiences of those around her, Kate is very aware of the impact of grief and trauma, and the importance of being able to integrate that into our lives.
