WHAT IS COUNSELLING?

Counselling lets you talk about your problems in a safe and confidential setting. It also helps you understand how problems can take over and stop you living the life you prefer.

Counselling can assist with identifying your strengths and learn skills to manage moods and behaviour, take control of your life, and develop more effective relationships.

Counselling is a small, smart investment in personal power and happiness that can help with anger management and improve the quality of your life.

At Heavy M.E.T.A.L, David Nugent’s motto is “Get in tune with yourself, your kids, your partner and your life”. David can help you develop your personal strengths and skills to solve problems, build better relationships and feel happier and more in control of your life. Everyone is welcome to contact David. He offers a free referral service – should he not be able to help you, he will see that you are well networked with good quality alternative service providers.

David Nugent believes…

  • That men can change their behaviour.
  • That men have rich and varied emotions but some men have not had the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills to express these feelings.
  • There is more than one way for a man to act and be. There are choices, which need to be recognised.
  • Attending counselling is a sign of strength, not an act of weakness or admission to failure. Taking action to improve an issue or problems is a strong responsible thing to do.

David is focused on providing a safe, respectful environment, whereby men and their families can reflect on their relationship and emotions.

His aim is to assist in the development and enhancement of men’s capacity to grow, establish more appropriate ways of coping with their environment and help men dealing with anger problems to have rewarding relationships.
