What David loves about working in mental health
“I love to support and empower clients to change entrenched patterns of thinking and behaving that are causing them distress. It is rewarding to assist clients to develop their skills and strengths so they can reclaim a sense of control in the midst of their challenges, and self confidence to manage future ones.”

What Netty loves about working in mental health
