"I'll be keeping his number should I ever need it again"
100%Reviewed 26 Apr 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
I was suffering badly with stress and I didn't know why.
I had 6 sessions with Brian and I felt back fighting fit. He is very good at asking the right questions and digging down under the layers.
I'll be keeping his number should I ever need it again.

Great location with a quiet discreet entrance.
I felt as comfortable in the clinic as I do at home in my living room.

"Brian was welcoming and approachable."
60%Reviewed 24 Mar 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
Before I came to see Brian I read all the reviews as I tried multiple different counselling services before him. I have to say all the reviews were very accurate. I found him to be welcoming and approachable. He introduced himself and it didn't take long at all to trust him and to talk to him. I came to see him about bereavement issues and he talked very openly with me as I shared my experience.

Warm and welcoming environment. I completed 4 sessions with him before I felt I didn't need anymore however there was no pressure for me to stop the sessions.

"I would highly recommend."
100%Reviewed 06 Feb 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
I went to see Brian to help get past my anxiety issues which were debilitating and causing me serious depression.

Brian was exceptionally professional and clearly sincerely cared about my issues. He immediately put me at ease and validated my decision to seek help.

After a few weeks, a clear shift had happened. After seeing Brian for roughly 12 weeks, the difference in my mental wellbeing was astonishing. At this point, Brian suggested moving forward without recurring appointments, which I felt comfortable with.

Excellent treatment

My experience was very positive across all areas. A relationship was quickly established and centered around trust and support, which allowed me to open up fully. This was key to my treatment being successful.

I would highly recommend Brian to anyone who requires help, support and guidance to get past any troubled times. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, genuine and professional.

I would recommend him to any close friends or family.

Be well,
Shane

"helped me find the root of my problems"
100%Reviewed 10 Jun 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Counselling
Brian creates an excellent environment for you. Passing on non-judgmental advice with a strong will to listen and understand your story. I had been to two previous counselors and found Brian to be exceptional and helped me find the root of my problems. Highly recommended, and excellent value considering all of the above.

Lovely quiet area, with ample parking and a private setting. Facilities were clean and comfortable also.

"recommend Brian to any of my friends needing similar help"
90%Reviewed 27 Apr 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychologist Consultation
I started to see Brian about 9 months ago. I was having difficulties in my relationship and decided to give up drinking, which was one of the main problems and which I had been doing most my adult life. After this I experienced a serious bout of depression which included suicidal thoughts which led me to seek help.
With Brian's guidance I discovered that I had dealt with all my previous problems by suppressing them with alcohol. These included sexual abuse, abandonment, lack of self worth and inability to trust anyone. Brian brought me back through these experiences in a gentle, non-judgemental but sometimes very challenging way. He showed me how my behavior and lack of trust made my partner's life almost unbearable. It was a very difficult journey for me but I found him to be very insightful, caring but most of all a great listener picking up on what I was and was NOT saying. This led me for possibly the first time in my life to totally trust someone.
With Brian's help I am still off the drink, have gained confidence in myself and am now becoming good friends with my ex partner and am even hopeful of that becoming more in the future.
So I would without hesitation recommend Brian to any of my friends needing similar help.

"He immediately puts you at ease and the environment is relaxing"
100%Reviewed 15 Nov 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
I went to the clinic for anxiety & inability to sleep properly. Brian employs CBT as his method of treatment and we discussed the causes of my anxiety (and the sleep related symptoms resulting from it).
Brian is a gentleman. He immediately puts you at ease and the environment is relaxing and conducive to discussion. I felt supported and never judged. He listens closely and has a clear ability to pick up on minutae and examine it.
