Daniel brings a wealth of expertise to his practice. Specialising in aiding clients with stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship challenges, trauma and abuse and emphasising respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Daniel believes in holistic treatment approaches.

His focus lies in cognition, interpersonal awareness, emotional processing, and leveraging strengths to foster healthy life choices. With a background spanning government and non-government services, he offers clinical and psychological interventions, with mindfulness as a cornerstone.
