Brian Back


When life gets complicated and difficult, it can feel like we're all alone and nobody understands or can help. But you're not alone in feeling like that, everyone struggles with life sometimes. I know what it’s like to struggle. I've been there. I understand. And I can help you understand, process, and work through the complex feelings that make life difficult.


I’ve met many despairing, depressed, and anxious people who felt hopeless about life and the chances of it ever getting better. I’ve seen those people turn their lives around, in ways that felt almost miraculous. I’ve found that people have more strength and wisdom than they realise. Together, in a warm, non-judgmental, and very safe, confidential environment, we can help you to re-discover that same wisdom and strength in yourself.

My approach to counselling is 'person-centred'. That means I won't tell you what to do, how you should think or feel, or that there's anything 'wrong' with you. I know that you are the only person who can be an expert on your life because you are the only person who has had your life experience. You are the only person who can know what you feel, and why. 

I believe that with the right support, everyone has the strength and ability within themselves to overcome any emotional difficulties that they might be experiencing. My job is to give you a safe and confidential space where you can feel comfortable enough to say anything that you're thinking or feeling, to tell the deepest truths you may have never told anyone else. Through providing open, accepting, non-judgemental presence support and discussion, I can help you uncover, untangle and process the difficult thoughts and emotions which are currently making life hard. That way you can gain peace and understanding to develop the solutions that feel right to you, that fit in with your life and the way you want or need or need to live. 

I have extensive experience and understanding of how to help people improve, learn, grow, and become the person that they want to be, through my work as a counsellor, lecturer, and author. I work with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-confidence and self-worth, relationship and family problems, and childhood trauma. 

Above all else, the one thing I have learned is that life can get better. And just by making the decision to look for help, you've already started on the path toward a more fulfilled and happier life. I'd love to help you on that journey.
