Dane is a gifted therapist and has an ability to help individuals gently explore, disentangle and move beyond (or coexist with) the factors that are bothering them. His emphasis is upon guided reflection rather than telling you what the ‘issue’ is. Speaking about upsetting experiences, traumas, and other struggles and how they continue to impact us is not an easy task. As an experienced social worker I can speak to Dane’s ability to dispel notions of shame or judgement and to create a genuinely safe space for individuals looking to better understand the connections that exist between our behaviours, past experiences, current relationships, and own sense of self.
