I have not been able to do a video session with David yet due to my mistake but I must say he is responsible, always on time and his advices always help. I would deliberately recommend his consultation to anyone who needs big help with psychology. David is always there to help.

I found my experience with counselling here extremely helpful and would strongly recommend it to anyone needing additional support and a safe place to talk. David Hopkins was patient and understanding, giving me the help I needed to sort through a few issues I'd been dealing with for a while.

David has been really helpful in helping me coping with Long-term issues which have been plaguing me for years. EMDR has been helpful in reducing my stress and anxiety and giving me perspective. After each session I feel a tension release physically and lighter emotionally. David has been really helpful thus far. Look forward to more progress.

Mr. Hopkins is an amazing counselor and listens to my thoughts and feelings with respect. He provides excellent feedback and tells me what I need to hear to help me not what I want to hear which is extremely helpful.

David is compassionate and understanding. He takes the time to make you feel like you are not alone and he really understands you. He does virtual EMDR sessions via video call which are incredibly helpful. I have done all kinds of therapy in my life and EMDR with him is helping me to undo negative thought patterns I’ve had for years that I have been unable to change. Thank you David!

David is a wonderful counsellor. Ever since I started working with him, he gave me great advice and gave me the right steps to overcome my problems and I’ve been able to receive positive results thanks to him.
He’s also a great listener and someone I can rely on to support me.

Mr. Hopkins understands the dynamics of raising teens in this day and age. He offers practical suggestions and listens with empathy. He responds quickly and is there when we need him. My son and I have both grown in our communication and perspectives. I would recommend Mr. Hopkins to anyone who’s struggling with addiction or relationship issues.

Really great help. Has given me the first step in the right direction and helping me make more.

Written by J.E. on Mar 09, 2020 after counseling with David for 5 days on issues concerning addictions

I kept denying I needed help for a long time and I never imagine a stranger would even care about my problems at all. However, David changed my perspective very quickly into our first conversation. David had prompted me to start writing about my addictions and internal conflicts prior to us talking. Shortly into our first conversation David brought up several things I had written. He was probing and really trying to understand me. It didn’t feel like a cookie cutter process and this really got me to open up like I had never before. After our first conversation I knew I had been matched with the right person to help me.
