Hi, my name is Brian. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
Therapy can sometimes feel daunting but there is a reason that you decided to look on this page. I feel that whatever we go through in life can seem overwhelming and difficult but once we start to unravel the layers we can start to see it for what is at the root.
I have experience working with difficulties that could be due to Relationships, Bereavement, Family Issues, Mental Health, Depression, Anxiety. Counselling can bring awareness and change to all difficulties that may arise in ones life through exploring these difficulties within counselling.
I further specialise in:
- Addiction: It is important to understand how the addiction began and it may have been used as a coping mechanism. Drug, Alcohol, Gambling and other forms of addiction can have an impact on us emotionally and impact our friends and family. Coping with addiction and support is important for everyone experiencing addiction.
- Anxiety: There are many different types of anxiety from Generalised anxiety disorder, Social anxiety, panic disorder but they all cause physical symptoms which impact us and can affect are daily life. Make things that are supposed to be easy difficult.
- Depression: Can be more than just feeling low it can be the low mood that lasts for a long time. Depression can impact our daily life and seem less worthwhile.
- Mental health disorders: Affect 1 in 3 every year, I have a full understanding of mental health disorders long term and short term and the impact they can have on our lives. This can be schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), borderline personality disorder, suicidal thoughts. I also have experience working within mental health services.
- Trauma: I have experience working with trauma and childhood trauma. I understand the complexity and the impact trauma can have on your life even after the event has passed.
- Panic Attacks: Can feel like the scariest thing, the importance is to understand the triggers and what these panic attacks are related to.
As a psychotherapist my focus is on the person's thought processes, and how these may be influenced by past events such that they cause problems in the present. This allows the client to gain insight into chronic physical and emotional difficulties. Thus allowing them to further understand their patterns of behaviour. I believe that is achieved by creating a comfortable environment and a relaxed atmosphere to work within which allows us to get to the root cause.
How counselling can help:
I offer counselling that allows you to get to the root cause of what is affecting you. I offer a space to explore the unconscious. By creating a safe space to talk openly and to build a therapeutic relationship. I offer space to explore, build awareness and create change.
If you would like to take that first step in seeking help, please feel free to email me here or contact me on 07984 706562.
