Thomas Brosnan - Addiction & Behaviour Therapist
Thomas is an experienced Integrative Addiction and Behaviour Therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. He holds a Masters in Addiction Psychology and Counselling and is a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). Additionally, Thomas is an Accredited Member of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP), a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a Certified Motivational Interviewing Practitioner and a Level 2 iheart Facilitator.
For over 20 years, Thomas has supported people to flourish in a range of personal, social, academic and professional environments. He has experience of working in both public and private rehabilitation sectors and also occupies a position within the NHS as an Addiction Therapist.
A key focus for Thomas is his passion for child welfare as he firmly believes that if we don't have broken children, we are much less likely to have broken adults. As a result, Thomas strives to implement, research and develop early intervention strategies for young people and his current research piece concerning metacognitions, parenting styles and cannabis use has recently been published. Thomas also speaks publicly and has recently featured at the Harrow SEND Conference and was on a panel of experts for the annual Disordered Eating Conference which was held at London's St. Pancras Hospital.
Thomas has a warm, person-centered and solution-focused approach to his therapy where he upholds that every person has the innate ability to thrive. By focusing on the trinity of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, Thomas enables his clients to identify where their issues lay and to notice how and where they can make positive choices that are right for them.
In concluding work with Thomas, clients report having increased levels of confidence, self-esteem and autonomy which leads to them being more resilient, having a greater level of emotional intelligence and a better sense of self overall.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
