I support professionals from these companies in their personal and professional lives
You feel constantly at fault in the relationship
Especially when you don’t comply with expectations
The relationship creates on-going anxiety and unpredictability
You never know what will set the other person off
For things that go wrong in the other person’s life
Because of the constant criticism, you’ve internalized negative self-talk
‘With Daniel’s insight , I have been able to unpack my life-long difficult relationship with my mom. I am no longer so afraid of her..or anyone, and now I know how to set clear healthy boundaries’ in all my important relationships. I also learned how to come from a place of fear rather than guilt in decision making’
My approach is driven by scientific research that shows that secure-functioning, 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 We’ll trace and unpack the root causes of your outdated, emotional habits and knee-jerk reactions to stress so they can be unraveled, unlearned and replaced with effective & skilful replacements based on wisdom,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 relate as adults. 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 skilfully navigate difficult relationships.
I’m a relationship specialist.
I challenge and guide my clients to build and sustain successful and fulfilling personal and professional relationships (starting with the one with themselves).
With fierceness, humour and humility, I champion client’s causes.
My focus is working with high-functioning professionals in Hong Kong who encounter interpersonal relationship challenges in all domains.
My clients include hedge fund managers, CEOs and CFOs of major international firms, homeless people, bankers, pilots, corporate lawyers, teachers, medical professionals, military personnel and rabbis.
I currently counsel men and women who work at these companies
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.
