• From my first session (the miracle question) my life began to change
  • I had no idea what to expect when I first visited Bryan and if I’m honest, I really didn’t think it would work for me… how wrong I was!
  • I am now on a completely different journey to anything I have ever experienced in my life, I am clearer about my goals and who I want to be (I have never really had goals before).
  • I feel alive, awake and am noticeably happier than I have been for years. I am enjoying every day of my life and I now look forward to what the future will bring.
  • I really think that concentrating on solutions instead of problems is the way forward, once you change the way you think I believe you can achieve anything.
  • I would like to thank Bryan for his time with me, he has truly helped me to change my life and for that, I will be forever grateful. I feel inspired to help others and only wish there were more people like him in the world.
  • I felt challenged. You woke me up and engaged my brain. I really enjoyed it! (48 year old man with long standing depression at end of 1st session)

    My memories of SFBT were incredibly positive and enjoyable. Bryan is a very approachable and friendly counsellor. I left each session feeling overwhelmingly positive. It is a nice change that a counsellor can encourage you to look for positives in your troubling situations that you may not have known were present. It is a great style of therapy that helps get you out of the "tunnel vision" that anxiety can cause. (26 year old woman with anxiety)

  • I felt very relaxed. I was listened to and could say how I really felt. Importantly, I was given the space to make up my own mind. After every session, I felt very positive.

  • The therapist was excellent because he opened my eyes to what I had achieved and how far I had come. He concentrated on potential rather than guilt or blame, which I found motivating and self affirming.
  • I was respected, listened to and my thoughts were channelled to positive areas; I was given different perspectives and allowed to talk problems through. I was welcomed, not judged.
  • The therapist was exactly what I needed at that point. I felt he understood me very well. He let me lead the conversation but had a remarkable knack of making comments which helped me reach a point of realisation on my own, which is exactly the way I respond best.

Solution focused brief therapy is a refreshingly straightforward, highly flexible and cooperative approach to counselling. It helps you to take control of your life by establishing how you want things to be and then working towards this end; a process which generates momentum and leaves problems behind.
