"Sessions felt safe, secure, a place for openness,
trust and expression without fear of judgement."
Counselling can enrich and nourish our lives. When we need to make a change, it can help to speak to someone confidentially, and who isn't personally involved.
Short-term counselling (6 weeks) can be of use if you have something particular that needs attention. Long-term counselling is more open-ended: By talking about difficult feelings, situations and experiences, we can begin to see that what may appear to be a hopeless problem can also be a message from a deeper part of ourselves. With acceptance and understanding, we can move beyond the patterns of the past, and towards a greater sense of self, which has more vitality and more joy within it.
"My period of counselling with David is recalled as hugely beneficial at a crisis point in my life. It has helped me to have confidence to gradually engage more with, and increase my enjoyment of life."
Walking & Talking
We live in a world where we can feel isolated and alone, and spending time in nature can help us to reconnect. Leaving from, and returning to, an agreed place, these one-off, confidential sessions can help if you have a particular problem or difficulty you would like to talk about, but are unsure if counselling is for you.
The time is yours. You choose what we talk about, where we go, and how we get there. Exploring the pathways of West Penwith can be both restorative and fascinating, opening you to
new possibilities in your life.
Singing can be liberating, allowing us to express hidden sides of ourselves. Many of us though, feel trapped - stuck in the stories we tell ourselves about our voices. With gentle, playful encouragement, we can learn to sing through our fears, let go of those old stories, and reclaim our vulnerability, our joy, and our aliveness.
These one-to-one sessions are suitable for anyone who wants to express themselves more fully and deeply, but has never quite believed that it was possible. We'll choose songs that are meaningful to you, and go at a pace that includes the whole of you - that includes both your hopes and your fears.
"I thoroughly recommend David as a teacher for anyone who is looking for a new way to express who they are
through voice and song."
These gentle, fun, two-hour drop-in workshops are for anyone who has always wanted to sing, but has never quite believed that they could. The workshop is divided into two parts:
Group Singing: Ideal for absolute beginners,
or as a warm-up for those who have attended before.
Solo-Singing: Time and space to share a favourite song - participants are encouraged to bring a song to sing - something that is meaningful for them.
"Learning to sing with David
is playful and joyful, whilst at the same time heartfelt."
