“It has made a huge difference to my life and general happiness” 

After a few years of mild depression, I began taking prescribed medication. Having come off the tablets I was determined to find a way to help myself as did not want to be on medication long term. A friend had suggested counselling as a solution. I was sceptical but decided to give it a try. Having read Brian’s good reviews I emailed him to make an appointment. It was the best decision I have ever made as now understand what causes my depression and have learnt simple coping skills (over 6 sessions) that actually work. I’m just sorry I didn’t seek this treatment earlier. It has made a huge difference to my life and general happiness.Brian is a very experienced therapist and conducts his sessions in a very safe and professional environment.                                  Orla  Dublin.

“I’ve become more positive and optimistic”

Treatment Received: Treatment for Depression

I was suffering from a deep depression that lasted more than 10 years. It got really bad that I eventually agreed to get some help because I feared it getting worse. I had little hope that I was going to get better when I started but Brian was very open and understanding. He was always patient with me and was quite an engaging. I felt very comfortable talking about my issues.

I would return weekly for more help, looking for a way to beat my depression. Something I thought was impossible, but Brian didn’t give up and sure enough one week he helped me turn the entire issue on its head and I got an entirely new perspective. I put in my own effort at the request of Brian and worked on facing the issues directly rather than ignoring them.

I’ve become more positive and optimistic and the people around me have noticed. I can make clear-headed decisions and haven’t felt bad about myself since. My sincere thanks to Brian for helping me in a dark time.

The clinic was quite cosy and homely. I would sit in a quiet, well lit room on a comfortable couch. Water was available at any time. I felt very at ease when I attended my sessions.

“Brian made me realize that it was OK to seek this help for myself”

 

Treatment Received: CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

I went to see Brian due to some issues I was experiencing at work which had begun to affect my whole outlook on myself and my life. Brian immediately made me feel comfortable about talking through these issues and helped me to see them in a different light. I looked forward to the consultations as I felt lighter, more content and more enabled to deal with life after each session. I had felt guilty initially that my problems were minimal in comparison to the issues other people can experience. However, Brian made me realize that it was OK to seek this help for myself. I never at any time felt pressured to make another appointment, which I appreciated. Brian also suggested some ways of coping after I completely finished this counselling and they have really helped.

My experience with Brian was excellent. He is calming, professional, reassuring and easy to talk to and is completely suited to this type of work. I chose to attend Brian’s clinic based on the reviews on this site which are completely accurate.

“I would highly recommend”

My experience was very positive across all areas. A relationship was quickly established and centred around trust and support, which allowed me to open up fully. This was key to my treatment being successful.
I would highly recommend Brian to anyone who requires help, support and guidance to get past any troubled times. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, genuine and professional.
I would recommend him to any close friends or family.

“I attended Brian for CBT in order to address anxieties that I had from childhood”

I attended Brian Griffin for CBT in order to address anxieties that I had from childhood that were affecting my relationships in adulthood.

Brian provided a safe and open environment whereby I felt comfortable. He helped me work through my anxieties in a guiding way that helped me understand my thoughts and actions. Seeing Brian has completely changed my outlook on myself and others for the better.

“He immediately puts you at ease and the environment is relaxing”


I went to the clinic for anxiety & inability to sleep properly. Brian employs CBT as his method of treatment and we discussed the causes of my anxiety (and the sleep related symptoms resulting from it).
Brian is a gentleman. He immediately puts you at ease and the environment is relaxing and conducive to discussion. I felt supported and never judged. He listens closely and has a clear ability to pick up on minutiae and examine it.
Ken Dublin

“Reassuring and understanding”


I had 10 sessions of talk therapy. Brian is a great therapist, very competent, reassuring and understanding, and charges a fair price. Highly recommended.
Found his contact details on What Clinic, and went with him due to the good reviews.

“Recommend Brian to any of my friends needing similar help”


I was having difficulties in my relationship and decided to give up drinking, which was one of the main problems and which I had been doing most my adult life. After this I experienced a serious bout of depression which included suicidal thoughts which led me to seek help.
With Brian’s guidance I discovered that I had dealt with all my previous problems by suppressing them with alcohol. These included sexual abuse, abandonment, lack of self worth and inability to trust anyone. Brian brought me back through these experiences in a gentle, non-judgemental but sometimes very challenging way. He showed me how my behaviour and lack of trust made my partner’s life almost unbearable. It was a very difficult journey for me but I found him to be very insightful, caring but most of all a great listener picking up on what I was and was NOT saying. This led me for possibly the first time in my life to totally trust someone.
With Brian’s help I have gained confidence in myself. So I would without hesitation recommend Brian to any of my friends needing similar help.

“Helped me find the root of my problems”


Brian creates an excellent environment for you. Passing on non-judgmental advice with a strong will to listen and understand your story. I had been to two previous counsellors and found Brian to be exceptional and helped me find the root of my problems. Highly recommended, and excellent value considering all of the above.
Lovely quiet area, with ample parking and a private setting. Facilities were clean and comfortable also.

“Clinic has a warm friendly feel”

I was made feel very comfortable from the start. Clinic has a warm friendly feel.

“Very easy to speak to and open up to, helped me to examine myself and be honest.”


Initially very nervous. But Brian put my mind at ease within the first 2 minutes. Very easy to speak to and open up to, helped me to examine myself and be honest.

“Reviews were very accurate”


Before I came to see Brian I read all the reviews as I tried multiple different counselling services before him. I have to say all the reviews were very accurate. I found him to be welcoming and approachable. He introduced himself and it didn’t take long at all to trust him and to talk to him. I came to see him about bereavement issues and he talked very openly with me as I shared my experience.
Warm and welcoming environment. I completed 4 sessions with him before I felt I didn’t need anymore however there was no pressure for me to stop the sessions.
Sinead Ireland

“Fell back fighting fit”


I was suffering badly with stress and I didn’t know why.
I had 6 sessions with Brian and I fell back fighting fit. He is very good at asking the right questions and digging down under the layers.
I’ll be keeping his number should I ever need it again.
Great location with a quiet discreet entrance.
I felt as comfortable in the clinic as I do at home in my living room.

“Brian helped me to work through my problems”


I first went to see Brian at a very difficult time in my life. Brian was very easy to talk to and helped me over the course of several months to deal with the issues I was facing. Brian helped me to work through my problems and gave me a lot of insight into why and how things were affecting me and how I could change that. I am now a much happier and confident person who can face problems armed with new skills and knowledge that I gained through my sessions with Brian. Brian was a great help to me when I needed it most – anyone who finds themselves at a difficult time of life needing guidance and help to work through problems should consider counselling as
an option. I could not recommend Brian highly enough.
Anonymous Dublin

“Excellent treatment”


I went to see Brian to help get past my anxiety issues which were debilitating and causing me serious depression.
Brian was exceptionally professional and clearly sincerely cared about my issues. He immediately put me at ease and validated my decision to seek help.
After a few weeks, a clear shift had happened. After seeing Brian for roughly 12 weeks, the difference in my mental wellbeing was astonishing. At this point, Brian suggested moving forward without recurring appointments, which I felt comfortable with.
Excellent treatment. I would recommend him to any close friends or family.
