About Me

My facilitation style is inclusive and respectful.
I am Co-Founder of Augmenting Workplaces, providing services to enhance all aspects of your workplace.
I'm a PACFA Provisional Registered Counsellor in private practice DaveSegal.com, and the Director at Mental Health Intervention Skills Training.

I strongly believe in the MHFA model and will continue to enjoy facilitating courses for humans from all walks of life. I have been a volunteer educator with MIEACT (mieact.org.au) where I visited high schools in Canberra to reduce stigma, raise awareness of mental health problems, discuss the importance of early intervention and help seeking. I have diverse life skills and experience assisting people of all ages with a range of mental health problems including 10 years in university student residences.

Testimonials

‘Engaging instructor. We were treated as intellectual adults (unlike first aid courses run for the general public…)’
‘David’s easy going, convivial presentation made the material engaging’
