Brian is attentive, caring, and knowledgeable.
Brian is an excellent counciler . He is professional and listens to what I have say. He also explains my behavior from a psychological perspective and gives useful advise in how to over come my fears and to make progress towards my goals.
Brian has been fantastic so far. In just two sessions, I've been helped to develop new skills and mechanisms for coping with my anxiety. He is very easy to talk to, and explains his thought processes and techniques clearly and fully. I look forward to our next session.
Brian is just great! Helpful and mindful about my experience .....especially at this time!
Brian came to our first session with the perfect attitude and I have had no complaints since. He has really helped me out.
Brian has been my psychotherapist for the past 6 months. From the beginning, I noticed how good he is at what he does. Right off the bat, during our first conversation, he started asking me important questions, that really made me think and helped me find out things about myself. And this stayed, every single week. Every session with Brian has been a very insightful one, and I am very grateful to have had all of them.
Brian really cares about personal well-being, is person-centered, he readily gives relevant exercises to work with, and he makes sure to get back to things that were discussed before, to not miss important details. He also points out positive things, is encouraging and always has a way to finalize/summarize a meeting so you know what you spoke about and what the learning point was.
I can really recommend Brian. I find him a very easy going, genuine and friendly person, who truly commits to the people he works with.
Even though I have decided to stop my sessions for now (he's helped me made incredible progress), I really hope to be able to work with Brian in the future, may I feel the need to talk with a psychotherapist again.
Brian was extremely understanding. He provided great exercises and thought experiments which allowed us to explore my issues deeply and deconstruct them. I am truly grateful for his help.
Brian is an excellent therapist, who puts the needs of his clients at the forefront of his attention. His easy-going nature, immediately helps to build rapport and provide an immediate comfort in anyone looking to confide for support. Would highly recommend.
I have been doing therapy with Brian for over 2 months, working on anger management, relationship issues and general stress and anxiety. I was very skeptical going into therapy for the first time but I was lucky enough to be matched with Brian. He has always made me feel very comfortable and has a great understanding of how to help me deal with my issues and how to support me through them. He has such a friendly personality and I could not recommend him more.
He’s awesome tells me what to do and I’m planning on making him my primary counselor.
Brian is so patient, understanding, and non judgmental. He's honest when needed and extremely supportive. He helped me deal with my panic attacks that I hardly feel the same symptoms as before. We're still in the healing process and I'm sure with him I'll have all my concerns solved.
From the beginning Brian asked in depth questions. He was been very helpful in looking for solutions that would work for me. I felt I was listened to. He explained things when I did not understand them and I feel I am making progress in trying to think differently and move my life forward.
Brian is a great listener and is proactive in bringing new approaches into our conversations and my "homework." After working with Brian I feel confident about addressing my challenges, so much so that even as I feel improvement, I'm actively reflecting and looking for additional areas to tackle.
Brian has been excellent and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Brian has been fantastic providing understanding and tangible strategies to help work through my anxiety and depression. He is easy to talk, non-judgmental and patient. Fantastic counsellor!
I can't thank Brian enough for his professional help. He understands what I'm going through and gives me advice that I can use for addressing my issues both in the short term and long term. It has helped me in ways I didn't expect.
I highly recommend working with Brian. He is adept at quickly understanding an issue and knowing the right thing to say at the right time. He effortlessly offers the best approach for you based on who you are. His knowledge, interpersonal and analytical skills are impressive. He is insightful, good humoured, able to entertain many different perspectives, and he's easy to talk to. Instant trust, respect, and appreciation for him. Very excited to work with him now and hopefully long into the future. Thanks Brian!
In the few weeks I've had with Brian he has helped me to identify the faults in my thought patterns and given me various different ways to help combat and correct them. Based on the things I have told him he has introduced me to concepts that I have resonated deeply with and as a result have found helpful in trying to change myself for the better.
