Daniel's direct, no BS style, immediately cut through to the core of what was creating problems in my relationship and helped me figure out what to do about it.
His laser-sharp skills pick up on the subtle, yet incredibly vital, cues that lead to real transformation, unfolding, and ability to relate deeply and authentically. I highly recommend Daniel for anyone who is looking to heal, transform, or simply go deeper in their romantic relationships and connection with others.

Daniel is capable of turning even the biggest skeptic around with his empathetic, engaging style. But it is his ability to read people, and master the skill of pushing boundaries without ever making you feel uncomfortable, that truly sets him apart. He taught my partner and I how to connect more deeply, overcoming hurdles that once seemed daunting. Thanks to him, we learned to be self-aware and mindful of each others needs which has been infinitely rewarding.'
Daniel is one of the most authentic men I’ve had the honor to meet. He wastes no time and cuts straight to the chase. Under his skillful guidance I became more aware of the obstacles that affect my well-being as well as the well-being of those around me.
How I Work for Shanghai
My approach is driven by scientific research that shows that secure-functioning, healthy relationships enhance our personal well-being. We’ll trace and unpack the root causes of your outdated, emotional habits and knee-jerk reactions to stress so they can be unraveled, unlearned and replaced with effective & skilful replacements based on wisdom, compassion and understanding.
We are all programmed to experience relationships in a particular way based on our early primary relationships: how we were related to and what was modelled to us as children. These emotional habits are hardwired into our brains and nervous systems without us realising. They dramatically impact how we relate as adults. They include a whole set of beliefs about ourselves and the world, though we are generally unaware of their influence and the extent that these beliefs are running our lives.
I’ll equip you to increase your emotional intelligence and develop insight and compassion about who you are and how you have been living. Under the surface, emotions drive many of our decisions. Most of us have little comprehension of the emotional dynamics driving the decisions we make and reactions we have to stress. I help people to develop a deep knowledge and comprehension of the emotional habits that lie behind our habitual decision making.
As soon as we experience stress, we are not run by our conscious mind any more, we are run by a more basic programme – older automatic emotional habits that were intelligent responses in early life. You will develop greater freedom to respond rather than react. You will have greater freedom to choose how to respond to stressful moments and more skilfully navigate difficult relationships.

Experienced Relationship Specialist for Shanghai
I’ve been a psychological health professional since 2002. I spend several hundred hours each year doing extensive training in the latest therapeutic and coaching modalities, in order to keep up with the cutting edge healing methods.
My expertise weaves the combination of years of mindfulness training and buddhist psychology training with advanced studies of cutting edge developmental neuroscience and attachment theory including Psychobiological approach to Couple Therapy and Emotion focused therapy
However, my own relationships are the real wellspring of my knowledge and wisdom. My experience as a committed husband, father, son and friend most heavily inform how I help others.
Daniel White is a skilled therapist and spiritual warrior. He is ballsy and gentle; heartfelt and edgy; strong and playful. He has been a keen witness to my process, artfully creating space where I feel safe and can take risks. I feel both supported and challenged in his presence. Daniel is simply a living invitation to journey in the heart.
I have found Daniel to possess a truly unique ability to cut through to the real core of an issue and offer genuinely useful, insightful perspective. He’s extremely attuned, sensitive and nurturing but at the same time knows when to challenge me, to provoke thought. I have learnt so much, and developed more than I ever expected, and live a fuller, more genuine life. Eye-opening is an understatement for my experience…and I plan on continuing it
