"It has made a huge difference to my life and general happiness"
5 50Reviewed 17 Apr 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Depression
After a few years of mild depression, I began taking prescribed medication. Having come off the tablets I was determined to find a way to help myself as did not want to be on medication long term. A friend had suggested counselling as a solution. I was sceptical but decided to give it a try. Having read Brian’s good reviews I emailed him to make an appointment. It was the best decision I have ever made as now understand what causes my depression and have learnt simple coping skills (over 6 sessions) that actually work. I’m just sorry I didn’t seek this treatment earlier. It has made a huge difference to my life and general happiness.

Brian is a very experienced therapist and conducts his sessions in a very safe and professional environment.

"I felt lighter, more content and more enabled to deal with life after each session"
5 50Reviewed 25 Mar 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
I went to see Brian due to some issues I was experiencing at work which had begun to affect my whole outlook on myself and my life. Brian immediately made me feel comfortable about talking through these issues and helped me to see them in a different light. I looked forward to the consultations as I felt lighter, more content and more enabled to deal with life after each session. I had felt guilty initially that my problems were minimal in comparison to the issues other people can experience. However, Brian made me realize that it was OK to seek this help for myself. I never at any time felt pressured to make another appointment, which I appreciated. Brian also suggested some ways of coping after I completely finished this counseling and they have really helped.

My experience with Brian was excellent. He is calming, professional, reassuring and easy to talk to and is completely suited to this type of work. I chose to attend Brian's clinic based on the reviews on this site which are completely accurate.

"I can make clear-headed decisions and haven't felt bad about myself since"
5 50Reviewed 16 Mar 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Depression
I was suffering from a deep depression that lasted more than 10 years. It got really bad that I eventually agreed to get some help because I feared it getting worse. I had little hope that I was going to get better when I started but Brian was very open and understanding. He was always patient with me and was quite an engaging. I felt very comfortable talking about my issues.

I would return weekly for more help, looking for a way to beat my depression. Something I thought was impossible but Brian didn't give up and sure enough one week he helped me turn the entire issue on its head and I got an entirely new perspective. I put in my own effort at the request of Brian and worked on facing the issues directly rather than ignoring them.

I've become more positive and optimistic and the people around me have noticed. I can make clear-headed decisions and haven't felt bad about myself since. My sincere thanks to Brian for helping me in a dark time.

The clinic was quite cosy and homely. I would sit in a quiet, well lit room on a comfortable couch. Water was available at any time. I felt very at ease when I attended my sessions.

"I'll be keeping his number should I ever need it again"
5 50Reviewed 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."
5 50Reviewed 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."
5 50Reviewed 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
