"I came to Bryan to help me
overcome my overeating problem. I think I was looking for a quick fix
solution. It was evident from the first session that past events in my
life & the feelings they evoked had not been dealt with at the time,
leaving me with a lot of internal anger & resentment plus fear of
loss. I began to see that instead of processing difficult emotional
situations I would suppress the emotions by stuffing food down,
therefore stuffing the emotions down, deep inside me. Now after therapy,
I am able to deal with these situations as my first reaction isn't the
debilitating one of anger. The only way I can describe how I feel now,
is that Bryan guided me through my mind & enabled me to do a
thorough spring clean, examining then sweeping away all the things in
the corners that I didn't want to look at. By examining them they can
now be relegated to the past as history & not have an overriding
influence on the present. I am so glad I found Bryan Dalgleish his
help,kindness & patience have been invaluable"..........22nd September 2012
"I was really down and depressed and didn't see any end to it.
The therapy helped me to deal with depression and to handle it - with relaxing therapies, thinking positive and challenging negative thoughts!
I now feel confident to move on and to start living my life again"
“I had been experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem and sleep deprivation for a number of months, which I believe had been caused by both personal and work related factors, which at the time I was finding to be extremely distressing.
Through the personal recommendation of another professional, I referred myself to Bryan for appropriate therapy. Following the initial consultation and clinical assessments, it was recommended the cause of my anxiety should be treated as the priority. Over the course of eight weeks, I participated in six sessions of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). The therapy has taught me to challenge the negative, anxiety producing thoughts, which were a major factor of my anxious state, fatigue, low self-esteem and sleep deprivation.
The successful outcome for myself is having learned and used the CBT techniques, there has been a direct impact by a reduction of the anxiety producing thoughts.
CBT has benefited me to move forward with my personal and professional life as a result of regular practice. These factors have improved my self-esteem and ultimately improved my sleeping“.
"You really helped me with my self confidence and I'm sure the techniques I learned will help me stay more positive. Thanks for all you help Bryan"
Bryan really helped my wife through a difficult period. She suffers with OCD which was particularly bad during her recent pregnancy. Thanks Bryan :)
“When I first went to see Bryan, I wanted two things. I wanted to be listened to with care and I wanted a therapeutic response for me based on what he heard, rather than ‘a one size fits all’ response. Bryan did listen carefully to what I so desperately needed to say – I could tell from his comments. His suggested solutions to my problems were based on what I said and they provided a respite, a firewall between me and the problems that I felt were overwhelming me. With this in place, I was able to re-evaluate what troubled me and to know that when I came under pressure again I had some tools to give myself some sense of safety.”
This female client benefited from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with Mindfulness and Compassionate Mind exercises. Looking at how our thoughts often affect our emotions and our behaviour…..learning to calm one’s mind…..watching rather than interacting with unhelpful thoughts. Bryan
Bryan has a calm and kind
approach to individual issues. I felt that he understood my needs from
the beginning, and soon worked out a perfect strategy for me to use in
my battle to succeed with giving up smoking. I am so incredibly happy
with the way I feel, and just feel more amazing every day. Thanks
