Dr Dave is an endorsed psychologist with over 15 years’ experience across corporate, government, sport, clinical, forensic, defence, and academic environments. He currently works across a range of corporate and performance domains, providing specialist psychological services to assist individuals, teams, and organisations to move towards more psychologically safe and healthy workplaces.

Having completed his PhD through the University of Western Australia, Dave’s primary focus was on better understanding the psychosocial factors that lead to the enhancement of human functioning, and exploring the strategies for the enhancement and maintenance of performance. Dave continues to be involved in and incorporate this research into his practice, ensuring his approach follows the most up-to-date practices in an applied setting. He works closely with a range of service providers to provide specialist advice on current best practice, and the practical application of the current theoretical trends.
