Hi, I'm Brent
I aim to listen to a client’s journey and help people reach their potential to be the best they can be in all aspects of their lives. I pride myself on providing a reliable and genuine experience to all my clients. I place a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and providing a space which allows clients to explore their difficulties in a safe, supportive, confidential and trusting environment. I will take an individual formulation approach to my practice considering the biological, social and psychological aspects of difficulties. Within this, I will work with clients to identify the most appropriate evidence based treatment approach within the available time. I am committed to helping individuals to achieve their full potential, identify individual values and helping you achieve your goals.
I offer a confidential and sensitive service to my clients providing evidence-based psychological therapy, including assessment and treatment for a range of emotional, behavioural, and psychological difficulties.
