Naturopath, Transformational Coach and intuitive healer, David is a pioneer in the field of human development. David dedicates himself to assisting others in their healing, transformation and empowerment.

David is an intuitive energy healer, spiritual teacher, naturopath, writer and creative. Throughout his life he has been protected, guided and inspired by Spirit.

David is a compassionate and generous spiritual teacher and healer, whose work focuses on empowering the deep spiritual nature of others bringing them into meaningful connection with their own wellness, life path and pursuit of happiness.

David holds a degree in Science (Naturopathy) including majors in Clinical Nutrition and Medical Herbology. He holds a professional certification in Aromatherapy, and is a certified Life Coach.

As a spiritual practitioner, David has been practising spiritual development and meditation for many years and teaches techniques channelled to him by his spirit guides, and those gained along the way from teachers and his own experiences.

Everyone has the resources to move to the next direction in life. Sometimes, the path may seem unfamiliar. We can easily become stuck in fear whilst contending with the unknown or unknowable territory. Change can seem the most difficult thing. As a coach, David’s goal is to activate people to find their own authentic power coming from the heart. “I believe that to evolve (“evolving not revolving”) is the most beneficial goal for people in order to live a life of purpose. We are all here to learn, teach and grow and it is my mission to empower people to live the hero’s life.”

David grew up in Cape Town, an energetic vortex at the base of Africa. His physical grounding in Naturopathy, fused with a variety of spiritual traditions including kabbalah and Buddhist spirituality, is balanced with his desire for elevating each day as a divine gift. David’s life purpose is to integrate principles holistically and apply them in a way that seeds wellness, personal growth and awakening amongst those who read about him, or meet with him. A master Teacher who teaches harmonious union with Nature on our planet, David believes he is here to ACTIVATE people to live in peace and harmony with themselves (nature).

David’s passion for beauty of life is revealed in his photography, paintings, and poetry.

His life path has taken him to 6 continents and now he has made a base for himself in Australia. He sees his journey as incorporating all the world’s traditions, and working with the journey of the sacred warrior. As a therapist, he works shamanically with the Earth Spirits, and with reiki, prana, tantra as well as the archangels.

In the aftermath of September 11 2001, David was guided to take a new path, to study in Jerusalem’s Old City, where he lived for 2 years studying mysticism. This intense period had a profound impact on his life. It was then that David began working as a massage therapist and exploring various methods of healing via touch. He developed a unique style of massage which is dynamic in nature, and designed to restore movement and function to all areas of the body. It was later when he became a Naturopath in Australia, that he realised the importance of nutrition and detoxification in a person’s health.

David started transformational medicine with the idea of transforming the planet through a shift in mind-body-spirit awareness of self. David is currently working on a book to share this wisdom with the planet.

David works with the higher realms, yet sees himself as a conduit to awareness and awakening that is sweeping the global consciousness. Bringing down wisdom into practical earthly awareness is important to make the shift into the new age.
