David Fox is a Sydney-based author, speaker and registered psychologist with a masters degree in psychology. In addition, David holds a black belt in the martial art of Tae Kwon Do.
He believes that overcoming issues like anxiety and depression are best tackled on multiple fronts. These include: undertaking cardiovascular exercise, challenging and learning to release your negative thoughts and beliefs, changing your diet, practicing mindfulness and meditation as well as talking to someone who can provide the right kind of empathy and support while you figure things out.
David’s goal is to teach people individually and within organisations how to help themselves thrive.
He is also highly skilled and experienced in couples and relationship counselling and is a Gottman certified couples counsellor. David is currently practicing at The Relationship Room in Balmain, Sydney.
He is also an advocate and supporter of people who would like to eventually reduce or potentially stop taking anti-depressant drugs if they are struggling with negative side effects or long term impacts of these drugs and who may be looking for alternative routes to a better quality of life.
David has spent over nine years working as an employee assistance counsellor and corporate trainer in mental health and has an in-depth understanding of the difficulties that can sometimes occur when employees are struggling with mental health issues.
David provides preventative solutions to the workforce to assist them in learning the tools of resiliency and how to minimse or eliminate stress, anxiety and depression from their lives. And there is no doubt that more and more research shows there is a very real dollar return to organisations who actively support the mental and physical well being of their people.
David runs training events around mental health in the workplace for organisations looking to improve the mental wellbeing of their employees.
