Customer Testimonials

"Kate and Dave have to be admired for their genuine and sincere rapport with children, young adults and adults alike.

In my past dealings with Kate especially, she has offered affirmative encouragement and advice to my teenage daughter. Kate has a wonderful way of listening, without being judgemental or condescending.

Kate’s understanding, patience and acceptance of my daughter’s “unique and sometimes challenging personality, with a vast array of likes and dislikes” has lead to them forming a genuine connection over the span of many years.

As a mother, I truly value this connection, as words coming from another person often hold more weight than from a parent!!


A grateful Mum"


"I have been seeing Dave for counselling for the last 6 months after a severe nervous breakdown and he has helped me turn my life around. I knew I needed help and I sought out Dave’s help and he freely gave it. He straight away knew that I needed counselling on a regular basis. He helped me identify my problems with practical easy ideas that were easy to understand and I felt really comfortable with.

I was most impressed with his professionalism, but also his easy going manner, how he reads a situation, and also his empathy shown to me.

I would not hesitate for 1 second to recommend Dave’s counselling skills to anyone who needs his help.

"Dave’s client counselling is exceptional. Clients he dealt with where both diverse in nature and had complex needs. He is able to be an effective listener, helping clients navigate and confront their own problems. His ability to lead conversation to the real issue and prompt timely questions greatly quickened client results. Dave has assisted our clients in their personal development, emotional reflection and to better understand the nature of their addictions.

"I’ve been seeing Dave for just over 10 months, and as an adolescent I find it very easy to speak to him about anything and everything, he has helped me on my journey through life and has helped me grow as a person positively. Dave has a fantastic ability to really connect with you as a person, I got extremely lucky by being counselled by him, thank you so much Dave :)
