Free 30 minute Consultation
Research indicates that the best client therapeutic outcomes are directly connected to the Client-Counsellor relationship. That’s why Dave is offering a Free 30-minute Consultation where you can meet Dave and ask any questions about him and his practice, put a face to the name, or see how his service and approach “fit with you.” Whether this is your first experience with counseling or Internet counseling or you’ve had previous experience, Dave will work hard to ensure that the space we collaboratively create is comfortable.
Learn About Your Counsellor
You can learn more about Dave in the “About” section.
If you believe, want or expect counselling to be a “quick fix” – Dave is probably not the Counsellor for you.
If you are feeling “forced” to, or you are feeling railroaded or cajoled into coming to “counselling” – you might not be a good fit with Dave.
Ideally, you are in that contemplative stage going between “should I” or “shouldn’t I”. When “I should” prevails and you are reaching out because you want to sincerely explore yourself and try to understand how you process things and how you react to the circumstances in and around you – you are in the right place.
This is precisely why Dave offers the Free 30-minute Consultation. This time together will assist Dave in determining where you are in terms of your desire for change. You see, Dave is purposeful with his time and wants to provide you with more timely opportunities to connect and explore your life’s circumstances – in other words: Dave has more availability to connect sooner and/or more frequently with his clients.

What to Expect
Regardless of the connection type (traditional face-to-face, internet counselling or by telephone), Dave’s non-judgemental counselling approach aims to strengthen you to explore yourself in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. In this setting, you will be encouraged to be curious about not only your feelings, but your beliefs, your behaviours and your interactive patterns.
Dave believes that when he and his clients establish a genuine sense of collaborative curiosity, the dialogue will inevitably reveal relevant personal discoveries and insights – that will form the basis for personal growth and sustained change.
Once we feel we have some awareness about your particular challenges, we can continue working together towards discovering ways to understand yourself and others or manage situations and interactions in different ways; freeing us up to work towards setting new personal or professional goals.
Finally, Dave is willing if you would like to include robust, relevant faith-based discussion in sessions. Dave has a passion and a desire to work with and support Christian’s in their walk with God.
