About me

Hello, I am Brian. I am a qualified and registered psychotherapeutic counsellor practicing in Chandlers Ford, Southampton and offer a no cost initial assessment. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore your life and relationships.

I use relational Transactional Analysis (TA) as my main theoretical framework but also draw on other therapeutic methods. TA leads to personal growth and change through understanding why we may get stuck in repetitive patterns of unfulfilling behavior, confused feelings, and negative thinking. Often our past negatively influences our now.

Research indicates that the single most important aspect of successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. I invite you to sit down with me in a relaxed, informal way so we can talk. I will help you make better sense of your experiences, thoughts, and emotions.  Together we can discover meanings, recognize patterns, and explore options.

Some of the issues I work with are anxiety, depression, feeling hopeless and stuck, sexuality/gender, sadness, worry, stress, shame, anger, guilt, couples/relationships, bereavement, loss, eating disorders, childhood suffering, abuse, trauma, low self-esteem and confidence, self-harming, poor sleep, searching for meaning and many other concerns.

After an initial assessment, and depending on the presenting issues, we can agree a therapeutic contract in which we may decide upon a limited number of sessions, or longer term and open-ended work.

I am a Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their code of ethics.

My practice is within easy reach of the M3/M27 and central and south Hampshire.

I currently offer apppintments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 07.30 and 2100.
