David Downes

In David’s early career he served in the Royal Navy – submarines (intelligence/communications).  Upon leaving he founded a new innovative IT start-up, leading to the employment of 115 colleagues located in 6 locations before its eventual sale in the late 90’s. After 3 major career changes, David finally retrained as a Psychotherapist, which in 2017 would lead him to Joe.




"I’ve never experienced a therapist like David, with him I had more of a feeling that I was in control of my own recovery. It felt far more positive and as if I was actually achieving something."
