My name is Brian Turner and I am a psychotherapist specialises in anxiety and depression based issues.
I work with an exclusive range of problems that range from anxiety, addiction, right the way through to suicidal ideation. I work from many charities, including stamp out suicide, where I am the placement coordinator. I would say my greatest strength is the therapist is that I am able to deal with cases which are therapists might find hard to treat due to the original nature of the problem. My approach is always to try and find out why a behaviour pattern has set in, and help you to come to terms with that, and find the best possible solution to get you back on track. Each person is an individual, as is their problem, and I will aim always to find the right solution to a unique problem.
I hold formal qualifications in hypnotherapy, counselling, mindfulness, PTSD, cognitive behavioural therapy, (although my counselling qualification exposed me to a range of different techniques such as Gestalt therapy, transactional analysis etc). Quintessentially, I have a very broad skill set that I used to create in tailor make personal treatment plans to assist all of my clients.
