8+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hello. I'm Brian Simpson. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor - I support individuals and couples with their psychological health. I have private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor. My focus includes anger, relationship problems and self esteem, and the specific challenges encountered by women.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment appointment enables you to discover if you are comfortable with me, discuss what troubles you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy could assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment session in Sefton Park, Liverpool.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you. It encourages your honesty about the worries you encounter. Client centred therapy aims to help you discover your own answers.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and behaviour. It identifies and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the problems you encounter. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates cognitive behavioural therapy for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and discover a solution which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Transactional Analysis (TA)

Transactional analysis centres on the roles you use to communicate with yourself and others. It considers the effect of your pre-conscious life plan and how to enhance it. TA seeks to help you recognise your worth and ability to change.
