About Bryan Holland Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Well the aim of a counsellor/psychotherapist is to help you make sense of what is going on in your life, as well as reflecting on past experiences and how they impact on the person you are today. So one way I can help you do this is by talking about and through your issues together with the help of CBT- Cognitive behavioural therapy
CBT can help you to change how you think (“Cognitive”) and what you do (“Behaviour)”. These changes can help you to feel better. It focuses on the “here and now” problems and difficulties. I also use various theoretical and therapeutic approaches with an aim to adapt to your needs and problems. Have a look at our website for helpful downloads. Also google your issue or issues and we will discuss what you might need in your counselling sessions. Hopefully I will be able to help you help yourself!
Counselling or psychotherapy allows you to achieve greater self-understanding, heightened self-acceptance, improved relationships with others and greater control over your life. It helps you to clarify what you want from life, addressing your own needs, improving relationships with others, taking responsibility and regaining control: learning to live, risk, love, hope and engage more fully with life.

Bereavement Counselling (1 hour )

Grief is a positive emotion. It enables us to heal from the inevitable sadness and losses of life. However we all grieve differently. Some feel devastatingly pained by it, they can talk of nothing else and appear to be stuck and unable to move on. Others believe that they need to suffer in silence. Current losses may have triggered off old unexpressed grief from childhood. The feeling about the lost person may not have been straightforward. A difficult relationship may result in a confusion about grief. Grief is also complicated when the person has not died, for example a divorcee or broken family relationships.

The stages of bereavement:
  • Trauma - experienced as a sense of numbness, withdrawal, inability to express emotions. (‘It hasn’t really hit me yet’, ‘ I’m just going around in a daze’.)
  • Denial – acting as though no loss had occurred. Hallucinations (hearing their loved one’s voice)
  • Depression – despair, pain, crying moaning, wanting to give up.
  • Guilt – Wished they had done something differently.
  • Anxiety – panic about the implications of the loss.
  • Anger – feeling victimised and trying to find someone or something to blame.
  • Acceptance – letting go, saying good-bye, appreciating, forgiving – and moving on with hope.

Counselling (1 hour )
A relationship with a therapist is a unique experience in which the therapist and the client meet in a space which is confidential and non-judgmental, where the client is fully accepted and acknowledged as a unique human being.Therapy is not about giving advice; rather it is a safe place where feelings which may have been buried can be explored and acknowledged. This can result in an ability to identify inner resources and develop skills to cope with problems and crises in a way which can lead to greater self acceptance and feelings of self worth.Psychotherapy seeks to look in depth at issues. Usually the issue has its origins in childhood. Problems caused by childhood experiences or the way a person sees and thinks about themselves are the main reasons why a person looks to psychotherapy as these issues can cause problems in the present. The purpose of psychotherapy is to get to the root of the problem thus enabling the individual to make positive lasting changes.
