Help with Alcohol problems…

Our clients say…

David instantly gave me tools to deal with my situation. He first acted as a crutch, my support and someone to vent to. It would have been easy to tip into depression or suicidal thoughts but David skilfully headed me off. I was entirely lost, my mind fogged with confusion, anger and sadness. He dealt with me like a shocked patient – simple easy steps to help me out of crisis. Once I was in a position to cope he engaged at a deeper level.

After that, our sessions helped me to work out why things were happening and how I could handle them. David was supportive in a way I really needed. Once some of the deeper causes of my behaviour were identified he suggested ways to rethink my approach. He was particularly skilled on the steps necessary to reinforce my new behaviours.

David strengthened me to deal with the crisis I was facing, and to avoid damaging behaviours that were trapping me in a lifelong cycle. I realised then that David Goodlad had helped me to partially reinvent myself. From that new place it was affirming to talk about where I wanted go from there. I have always been suspicious of making those nirvana-like plans, the type made as you travel home from a really good holiday. David, however, was great at showing how to make the life I wanted realistic and achievable.

David doesn’t indulge – he solves, and I am enormously grateful to him.  LJ
