Daniel Rutley, Counselling Services

Short Term Counselling Focused on Long Term Results

Speaking Engagements:

Practical results are mandatory… as they are within his private consultations! Positive affirmations and little rhyming quips may sound good but they don’t produce lasting results.

Real lasting change does not come from telling people “what to do” but showing them systematically “how to do it” in a way that will be personally motivating and impact. Telling someone to “bake a cake” is different from showing him or her “how to” bake a cake. Daniel Rutley provides an evidenced-based step-by-step “recipe” for positive, lasting change. 


Escaping Emotional Entrapment has received raves from such noted authorities as John Gray, Ph.D. and the grandfather of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dr. Albert Ellis. Humor intertwines with practical, no-nonsense advice that anyone can understand and use immediately. Daniel provides “step-by-step” recipes on how to make change that provides results quickly. Pick up this life-changing book and start making tomorrow better, today!
