Brian Hone - Snr,Accred Psychotherapist/Counsellor MBACP/UKRCP.
59 Maxwell Gardens
My aim is to help people to gain a greater understanding of why they feel the way they do, and as a consequence manage situations and their lives differently. I work with both adults and couples. Powerful feelings of sadness, worthlessness, self hatred, emptiness, disconnection and inadequacy can impact on our very sense of being alive, in our relationships and our work. These deep seated feelings may create self destructive patterns of behaviours which may result in constant feelings of irritation, conflicts, anger outbursts, drug and alcohol problems and ultimately separation and ultimately divorce.
I am an experienced Analytical Psychotherapist of 33 years. I have extensive experience working in Mental Health and in Private Practice, with people suffering a wide range of emotional difficulties ranging from, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Clinical Depression, Eroticised Asphyxiation, Anger management, Body Dysmorphia, Addictive personalities including drugs and alcohol, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Identity problems, Anxiety and panic attacks, PTSD, Eating disorders, Low self esteem, Sexuality, work related issues.
I also see clients on Saturdays.
