Meet David Ellis
David began his career in the Hospitality Sector in 1976 and obtained a diploma in Business Management. He has owned and operated Restaurants, Hotels, Retail Outlets, Serviced Offices, Holistic School, Therapy Practices and several On Line Businesses. He has also Authored several books and online blogs.
David became a Therapist in 1998, when he realised his desire was to help others. Using his life experience and academic learning, he helped clients to reduce stress in their lives, to find harmony and balance and to find inner peace. Up to August 2019, he is a practitioner in the areas of Stress Management, Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Reiki, Crystal Therapy and Colour Psychology.
David worked with private individuals and business people on a One to One basis and worked with corporate groups, classes, workshops, seminars and meditation/mindfulness groups. He specialised in helping people to manage their Mind Matters so they could focus on Living. “Stress, anxiety, depression and addiction can destroy our true potential, both in the work and living environments”, says David.
David incorporated his own personal experience of stress, depression, and sexual orientation confusion in empathising with others. He also drew on the wealth of knowledge accumulated from super successes and super failures in the business world.
David encouraged his clients in their healing and personal growth, through empathy, non–judgement and caring. He was a dedicated specialist in helping people to overcome the issues faced in all areas of life and work. Most noteworthy was David’s help in dealing with stress, self-esteem, confidence, addictions and sexuality orientation. His approach was Therapist Centred or Therapist Directive, whereby the therapist directs each session and encourages the client to take responsibility for their lives and the steps they need to take, in order to resolve their inner conflicts.
He useed a number of modalities, depending on the issues at hand. Those modalities included : Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Stress Management, Mindfulness Meditation, and a host of Holistic Therapies. The emphasis always on a holistic approach.
David no longer practices as a full time therapist, but now offers his counselling, advive and wisdom, free of charge, to those who are in need of help. All you have to do is ask!
In conclusion, David’s belief is now and has always been, that through non-judgemental, empathetic, reflective listening we can begin to open up to communication. We have within us the tools to undo fears and anxiety. This allows us to be free of internal dialogue of shame and guilt.
His motto is:
“If I have no honour or integrity – then I have nothing”
