Hello! I’m David - recovered alcoholic and passionate sober-dude! I’m thrilled to be involved with BeeSober as a counsellor, allowing me to bring to bear my lived and professional experience to help others. Like you!
After building a successful career in advertising & design, I pretty much thought I had it all. So what next? I know , I’ll let alcohol take it all away. Makes sense, right? After many years of what I might describe of “drinking a bit too much” I tumbled into dependence and ultimately endured two alcohol detoxes - before seeing the light and embracing my recovery.
My counselling is a manifestation of what I have learned through my own journey, carefully blended with the skills built upon years working as a practising alcohol support worker. It’s a simple recipe for success: Take a relaxed, open and honest counsellor/ client relationship and sprinkle a tasty blend of motivation, encouragement and evidence based interventions over the top to deliver a cohesive, engaging, fun (yes, fun) way to tackle issues around alcohol. I like to call it “hybrid” alcohol support.
I am here to support your journey. I can help you quit drinking. Remember, it’s not that you can’t ever drink again - it’s that you don’t want to.
As a practitioner I have a wide range of professional qualifications and attributions. From managing change to relapse prevention; dealing with cravings to future life planning.
All backed up by a relaxed, therapeutic relationship.
I’m all about blended care: I work in-person and online and can accommodate appointments in different time zones. I’m here for you, after all.
What’s that? What’s my thing? Oh, right, yeah - I’m nothing special - I love to walk the dog, breathe the fresh air and ponder life! In my downtime I am a passionate creative - graphic designer and coder of “things”. I have a Border Collie called Fred and a penchant for Poland.
Let’s do this!
