“I started seeing Daniel due to difficulties with stress and low motivation - struggling to keep on top of simple daily household tasks. Daniel is so kind and approachable, and while our sessions were remote he still made it feel like a safe space for me to open up and explore my vulnerabilities. Daniel took the time to listen to me even when my train of thought was all over the place and helped me get to the root of my issues. He has provided me with the skills and tools to appreciate my inner critic, thank it for it's input but not let it dictate my life through fear of failure. I can't thank Daniel enough for the renewed confidence and motivation I once again have towards life”
