Dave was really good and helped me through my time of struggle, with a friendly approach to the sessions it made me feel comfortable and made it easier to share which allowed an easier more comfortable way of therapy. Best therapist could have asked for.
The first national coronavirus lockdown to a huge toll on my mental health. I had slipped back into negative thinking patterns and behaviours and was developing a serious issue with drinking and drugs. With Dave’s guidance, I am now clean and sober and have tools to stay that way and withstand the personal and professional challenges lockdown #2 will inevitably present. I would like to take this chance to thank Dave for his invaluable support and wish him all the best for the future.
Comforting and safe to talk to. Helpful advice, including book recommendations and advice. Flexible sessions and arrangements. Overall, would recommend.
Dave was very personable to begin with and it helped as we went along this counselling journey, we had a lot of similar interests which helped forged a good relationship. I felt Dave asked the right questions to get me to think and reflect alongside recommending some very helpful tools that will assist me moving forward on my journey of self-improvement. The best thing about Dave was, I did not feel judged at all or that he came across in a judgmental way. Thanks Dave, for the support and for listening, I’ve taken a lot away and I feel more confident that I have the tools at my disposal to deal with situations better.
Dave Petch has been an excellent support and guide over the past weeks. He was able to get me to see and approach my anxiety in new ways. The meetings were always with purpose, and I felt I left each meeting with positive actions.
