‘Daniel is capable of turning even the biggest skeptic around with his empathetic, engaging style. But it is his ability to read people, and master the skill of pushing boundaries without ever making you feel uncomfortable, that truly sets him apart.

How I Work

My approach is driven by scientific research that shows that secure-functioning, emotionally healthy relationships enhance our personal well-being. We’ll trace and unpack the root causes of your outdated, emotional habits and knee-jerk reactions to stress so they can be unraveled, unlearned and replaced with effective & skillful replacements based on wisdom, compassion and understanding.

We are all programmed to experience relationships in a particular way based on our early primary relationships: how we were related to and what was modelled to us as children. These emotional habits are hardwired into our brains and nervous systems without us realising. They dramatically impact how we function in our adult relationships. They include a whole set of beliefs about ourselves and the world, though we are generally unaware of their influence and the extent that these beliefs are running our lives

I’ll equip you to increase your emotional intelligence and develop insight and compassion about who you are and how you have been living. Under the surface, emotions drive many of our decisions. Most of us have little comprehension of the emotional dynamics driving the decisions we make and reactions we have to stress. I help people to develop a deep knowledge and comprehension of the emotional habits that lie behind our habitual decision making.

As soon as we experience stress, we are not run by our conscious mind any more, we are run by a more basic programme – older automatic emotional habits that were intelligent responses in early life. You will develop greater freedom to respond rather than react. You will have greater freedom to choose how to respond to stressful moments and more skillfully navigate difficult relationships.

Experienced Relationship Specialist

I’ve been a psychological health professional since 2002. I spend several hundred hours each year doing extensive training in the latest therapeutic and coaching modalities, in order to keep up with the cutting edge healing methods.

My expertise weaves the combination of years of mindfulness training and buddhist psychology training with advanced studies of cutting edge developmental neuroscience and attachment theory including Psychobiological approach to Couple Therapy and Emotion focused therapy


However, my own relationships are the real wellspring of my knowledge and wisdom. My experience as a committed husband, father, son and friend most heavily inform how I help others.


Daniel competently facilitates the group – and he is also participating to some extent with his personal life, so not aloof to the others in the group. The flow is good, not boring, especially as you develop understanding of your fellows and how their life is being met differently after the weekly conversations
– TG, Natropathic doctor
Working with Daniel has been life changing. He exudes “living in the moment”. Just sitting next to him, I sense a calm within myself that I’ve not known otherwise. The weeks that I spent in group work with Daniel have shown me more of myself than I ever could have imagined, and I am better for it.
– Nathan W CEO of Outsource Locally Boulder, CO
Working with Daniel continues to be an incredibly valuable and important part of my life. He is an incredibly skillful listener, full of empathy and authenticity. Through his sharp insights and caring support, he has helped me make sense of my life experiences and behaviors while providing me with the hope and mental tools required to better myself. I strongly believe that anybody seeking a life coach, therapist or guide would be very well served by seeing Daniel (either individually or as part of a men’s group)
– G.T IT support in Banking, Hong Kong
