David is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with nearly 15 years’ experience. He has supported many children, young people, adults and families with a variety of issues and concerns.

David uses individual evidence based approaches, often utilising formal theories such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Behaviour Change techniques, Systems Theory and Mindfulness.

David has assisted people experiencing mental health issues such as depression and anxiety across the life span, and worked with individuals experiencing thoughts of suicide and self-harm.  

While working at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, David developed a profound sense of the broad impact of abuse on children, adults and families. He has guided many people to recovery and healing from the harmful event or events in their life.

David has worked with many families where there have been problem behaviours, ranging from issues at school to criminal behaviours. David believes that problem behaviours do not define a person and through counselling, problem behaviours can cease.
