Meet David Ellis
David left the entrepreneurial world of Hospitality after 20 years, to pursue his career as a Therapist. He began his holistic training in 1995 and qualified as a Colour Therapist in 1996, he went on to study Crystal Therapy and became a Therapist in 1998.
David quickly realised to have a better understanding of people and their needs in healing; he needed to understand more about emotional triggers, how childhood formed adulthood and how the conscious and subconscious mind affected the well-being and ultimate healing of the person.
Over the next 15 years, David studied Hypnotherapy, Stress Management, Counselling, Addiction Counselling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Reading Body Language. He qualified with various levels of degrees and diplomas but believes these status’s to be constructs of the ego, to satisfy its self-importance. Therefore you will not see his certificates displayed on any wall or on this site.
David works with private individuals and business people on a One to One basis and works with corporate groups, classes, workshops, seminars and meditation/mindfulness groups. He specialises in helping people to manage their Mind Matters so they can focus on Living. “Stress, anxiety, depression and addiction can destroy our true potential, both in the work and living environments”, says David.
David incorporates his own personal experience of stress, depression, and sexual orientation confusion in empathising with others. He also draws on the wealth of wisdom accumulated from super business successes and super business and personal failures. He says. “if we have not failed, we cannot learn”.
David encourages his clients in their healing and personal growth, through empathy, non–judgement and caring. He is a dedicated specialist in helping people to overcome the issues faced in all areas of life and work.His approach is 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 uses 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, Communing with Nature and a host of Holistic Therapies. The emphasis is always on a holistic approach, of Mind Body and Spirit.
In conclusion, David believes 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”
