About David

My work is for those looking for powerful transformative and healing work, for a transformational partner. Having done coaching and bodywork for over 25 yrs now,

I am extensively skilled and passionate about what I do. Whether you are seeking relief for chronic physical or emotional pain, looking to connect with your inner peace, or wanting a fresh start, you will find a lasting impact that permeates your being.

I hold a space of unconditional love without judgment for you to engage in the exploration, healing and transformation that you hold the keys to yourself.

I create a safe space and to shine the light on areas you may be not be fully aware of, that may shift your entire perception through being aware of.

My extensive training in communication and listening gives me the ability to not only identify subtle, disempowering beliefs and thoughts, but to connect with your own, innate ability to have mastery over which thoughts to give power to. My clients say my nurturing approach makes it easy to relax and release, and authentically look at whatever they wish to.

Whether male or female, straight or gay, transgender or CIS,

you will find comfort and nurturing acceptance with me.

I have an appreciation for all authentic spiritual paths. I adjust my vocabulary according to what best suits your preference, as I have no attachment to any religion or spiritual approach. For me, it is all just different ways of expressing universal truths.

'It was “delicious” and damn fun to spend time connecting with you and feeling my chakras align during the process. I am trying to integrate without over thinking... I know that getting things logically for me is not challenging, but allowing that to sink into my body is another story.

Thank you for providing such a safe (and fun/exciting) space and for joining me out there on the limb! It’s quite special and indeed something that has already set energy in motion (no pun) where I am excited to jump into this journey with both feet. I feel so many things right now that it’s challenging to put them into words at this point. I guess they are marinating, but I feel this strong sense of optimism, excitement, possibility.'
