About The Anxiety Practice
Hey, Brian here. I'm really passionate about helping you transform into a calmer, happier, and more confident version of yourself. Trust me, I know exactly what you're going through because I've been there myself, and let me tell you, it's not a pleasant place to be.
During my younger years, I battled with overwhelming social anxiety that followed me into adulthood, manifesting as work anxiety. It was a tough journey, but through dedicated training in various therapeutic methods, I gained a deep understanding of how anxiety and stress are formed in the mind. Armed with proven solutions and effective strategies, I was able to shed my anxiety and unveil the calm, confident person I had always been beneath its grip.
Since conquering my anxiety, I've accomplished some truly remarkable things. For instance, I had the incredible opportunity to DJ for 17,000 people as a warm-up act for both Little Mix and Olly Murs at Hove County Cricket Ground. Additionally, I established a training school for therapists and even took on the exciting challenge of hosting a daily radio show.
Now, I understand that you may not have the same aspirations as me, but I can imagine that anxiety is holding you back from something significant in your life. And let me tell you, it would be amazing to see you break free from its constraints and start living your best life.
Anxiety takes many forms and I help people with everything from Generalised Anxiety Disorder to OCD, phobias to PTSD and fear of public speaking to insomnia (which is often a side effect of anxiety). I also help people to overcome stress as this often leads to anxiety and other mental health challenges.
I offer a free, 1-hour consultation before commencing any course of therapy, which is an opportunity for me to meet and talk about how you would like the current situation to be different. You will also be given a really useful understanding of how the brain works to create the problems you are facing, and because my Solution-Focused approach has evolved through clinical research and modern developments in Neuroscience, I will be able to explain exactly how and why this process works so effectively. So, you will be able to make a fully informed decision about whether this is the right therapy for you.
Face To Face Sessions
I offer face to face therapy in my relaxed and comfortable log cabin in Denton, which is a 5-minute drive from the A27 Beddingham roundabout.
My therapy space can be found at the base of the beautiful South Downs with plenty of parking and stunning, relaxing views.
Zoom is an effective way to access help if you would rather stay in the comfort of your own home or are too far out of my geographical area.
Clients with young children often find this helpful as they can arrange appointments when they have put them to bed, without having to leave the house. This is often the preferred choice for commuters who don't get home until later in the evening.
Zoom therapy is just as effective as a 1 to 1 session and offers more flexibility by fitting in around your home life and is something that I have offered for several years now. Some people choose a mixture of both, coming in person for the consultation before moving online if it suits their circumstances more.
You might be surprised to hear that only around 20% of hypnotherapists in the UK have the standard of qualification (HPD) recognised by the National Council For Hypnotherapy (NCH).
You can be reassured that I have qualified to this standard and am proud to have trained as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist with CPHT, who are recognised as providing the most up-to-date training. I am in fact now a senior lecturer at both their sites in Brighton and Surrey and a guest lecturer in eight other schools around the UK.
I am also a qualified Supervisor, NLP Master Practitioner & Coach.
