Higher Self

Hello and welcome. As a holistic counsellor I use a range of proven therapeutic techniques to help people improve the quality of their lives.

Were you aware in the next twelve months one in five people will experience some form of stress, anxiety or depression? Did you also know nearly half of the population will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lives? Without treatment these conditions can be debilitating, affecting our lives and those of the people around us.

Every one of us is unique, as are our stories and experiences. At the Higher Self Clinic we provide you the opportunity to share your experiences in a supportive environment that works at a pace and a level that suits you best.

Counselling and mentoring are a means of gaining support and guidance through challenging times and can assist you to develop better, more effective coping mechanisms and strategies that are both practical and easy to implement.

Who uses Higher Self services?

Adults and children from all walks of life have accessed our services. Because mental and emotional distress is relatively common, our services are available to a broad section of the community for a wide variety of issues. Some of these issues can be addressed and resolved relatively simply. Other concerns may be long standing or are the cause of destructive patterns that have manifestly affected your life.

Regardless of whether we are a child or an adult, our experiences are unique and can sometimes have a profound effect on the way we live. You may be interested to know behavioural problems, addiction, abuse, grief, relationship difficulties and unresolved child hood issues are common in society. The good news is they are equally treatable provided the client and the clinician work in unison to find a solution.

“When my marriage broke down a good friend suggested I get counselling at Higher Self. I admit, at first I was apprehensive about sharing my story. It took me a couple of sessions to relax my guard and open up to the deeper reasons underlying my relationship difficulties. I’m so glad I did. David worked at a pace I was comfortable with which allowed me to confront these issues on my own terms. I can honestly say, I think what David does is amazing.” Sarah – Chatswood.


“I recommend David to anyone who is ready to fix their stuff. Time after time I was blown away with what we uncovered. I’ve been to other counsellors but nothing seemed to work. I’ll tell anyone I meet, this guy really knows his stuff.” Jessie – West Ryde.
