FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS
‘Brian has changed my life. When I first came to see Brian I was in a terrible state and could not see a way out of it. He has helped me to change the way I think about things and deal with my problems. I would not have managed this on my own’.
'My sessions with you have really been life changing. I initially would have been reluctant to admit attending therapy but now would have no concerns at all and would urge people who are in anguish to get support, realise that you owe it to yourself, and you are worth it'.
'I would like to thank you for helping me to find myself again. The things you taught me are invaluable, there is no way I could have done it on my own. I never believed in therapists before but I have certainly changed my mind now. Hopefully if I can continue to be the new me, maybe my relationship with my wife can get back to what it should have been, if not, at least I know that if I meet someone else, I won't make the same mistakes'.
'I have found the techniques used in the sessions have helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life.'
'I wanted to take this opportunity to say that journey I have completed with you has given me a life I once only dreamt about. I was nervous and anxious at first but your professionalism, honesty and understanding gave me the trust to work with you through things I had kept secret all my life and at one time I thought I could never trust to tell anyone. Your patience, encouragement, and making it a safe place gave me the confidence to get through my darkest nightmares. You helped me find the key to unlock the padlock and release the ball and chain I have been carrying for many years. You are so passionate about your work in helping others that I am so pleased I made the step to contact you. I am now living a happy fulfilled life something I could not have done without your help and guidance for which I cannot thank you enough'.
‘Brian provided me with a great balance of patience, support and encouragement that empowered me to reach my goals. I can't thank him enough.’
‘I can recommend Brian in his approach, his insight and knowledge and his professional manner in everything he does. He has been of tremendous help to me and someone I would continue to rely on in times of challenge.’
‘In our sessions he gave me strategies on how to accept what I couldn't change in my life plus the strength to make changes that I could. I feel calm within myself that I have never felt before. Every relationship in my life has improved drastically for the better including the relationship with myself. Simply saying ‘Thank you, Brian’ isn't enough.’
‘Brian offers what I call my ‘Self Help Kit’, consisting of his supporting literature, books and CD’s …………supporting your learning and ensuring you continue to challenge yourself by working on the habits you want to change. Thank you, Brian’.
'Brian exceeded my expectations, after only three sessions my anxiety and the weight I was carrying had started to melt away. With the tools and actionable life changing steps we worked on I can now handle my stresses that held me back for many years. I have experienced a profound change allowing me to let the past go and I am now living life to the full'.
