After speaking with several therapists I have finally found the one in the face of David. He is very professional and knowledgeable and helped me to overcome my problems.
Thank you for everything you have done for me and my family. You have always been there for me - in my good days and in my bad days and I would never be able to thank you enough!
I contacted David a few years back and from that first phone call, I knew he was the right person. He was patient, friendly I somebody I can trust and for that, I can only say thank you.
I just wanted to say a big thank you, David, for all of the help and great advice. You have completely changed my life and the way I think. Thank you.
I would love to say thank you for the help and support throughout the years working with me.
I was reluctant to speak to anyone and after my partner encouraged me I finally rang David. He came across friendly and knowledgeable and he made me feel so much better about myself. I have been seeing David for years now and I and my partner are very grateful for everything he has done for us.
I came into contact with David Brough in 2014, from the minute he phoned to arrange my appointment I knew I had found the ideal therapist for me.
I contacted ATS and things changed fairly fast as I had a concentrated treatment programme which transformed my life, my relationship and my happiness - All for the better.
After waiting for an appointment with the NHS community services I had counselling sessions by a person who was helpful but not very skilled.
