Therapy Sessions

HOW IS THIS SERVICE DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?

David will empower you to make a lasting positive change in your life.

David believes you have the answers. David’s focus will be listening to you, making sure that what you want to say is the most important thing that is happening in the room. David will support you in exploring your thoughts and innermost feelings so that you can decide what is best for you. The power of simply being heard is immense.

David will co-create with you a safe, secure and nurturing relationship so that you are empowered to make changes in your life. David’s specialisations, experience and unique mix of psychological theory he applies is aimed at supporting those struggling with addictions so they can listen to the symptoms such as anxiety and depression and ask; what are they trying to tell me?

Healing and change can only occur when you feel safe in the relationship. Research shows the quality of connection and understanding is the most significant factor in therapeutic success. David will join with you emotionally so you don’t feel alone. 

Sessions are available at our face-to-face practice at Surry Hills or via Zoom. Sessions are charged at $175 (+2% credit card processing fee). All sessions are paid in advance and 24 hours’ notice is required for changes or cancellations.

TREATMENT OPTIONs

The experience that makes all the difference.

Different treatment options suit different people. We may all suffer the same afflictions but we are all ultimately individuals. Depending on your individual needs, the following treatment options or a combination thereof are available.

Individual counselling and psychotherapy

David works 1-1 with people suffering addictions wanting to get well and with family members wanting to create change.

Addiction focused group psychotherapy

Also known as "process group therapy", this highly specialised approach to recovery occurs in groups amongst peers with a trained facilitator.

Family member focused group psychotherapy

Available for groups of family members of struggling loved ones. This provides an opportunity for change at our very core while surrounded by community.

Online or face to face meetings

All services are delivered both on-line through video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and FaceTime, or at David's Surry Hills based Counselling Practice.

It's time to take the first step to a happier, healthier you.

Step 1

Acknowledge the problem

Don’t over think it. Starting is the hardest part. This involves recognising that what you are doing isn’t working.
