About David Short

My name is David Short, and I have over 20 years of experience working in public, private, and corporate roles in psychology and have a passion for assisting people with insights into self-defeating behaviours and strategies to move forward towards a more fulfilling life. This is achieved through a client-centred, clear, compassionate, and cooperative approach, supportive and non-judgemental, ensuring a positive therapy experience.

I tailor individual solutions for my clients by drawing from traditional and contemporary evidence-based approaches, including CBT Therapy (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Schema Therapy and Mindfulness.

I have substantial experience working with clients with presentations including depression and anxiety-related disorders, difficult life transitions, relationships, self-esteem and confidence issues, student support, executive wellness, men’s health, fatherhood, and stress management.
