Healthy mind, healthy body, healthy soul. We are not born with a set of instructions to navigate the changing stressors in our lives, or cope with significant traumas we may experience. What we can do is be heard and learn how to cope and soon find some joy. Psychologists are just the people who have this ‘instruction manual’. They are trained in the art of truly listening and offer ideas and methods we could never dream about, particularly when we are in crisis. Having been practising on the Gold Coast for over 25 years, David is embedded in the community. He has 3 children, loves to travel and is in constant pursuit of happiness. David is available on Fridays. He looks forward to seeing you.
