Well I'm Brian Beecroft
So who am I?
At this stage I want to be a little different from other counsellors.
I want to tell you a little bit about me. To start with I am just a normal chap really,
and I'm not scary.
Over the years I have worked in a range of industries. I started my working life in the hotel, restaurant and pub sector. After about 18 years I fancied a change. I retrained in visual design and advertising and then went on to education, teaching photography. I also ran a photography studio in Dover. I have always been very practical and I have renovated a number of properties and businesses.
These days I can do this less due to my mobility issues, but I miss this aspect of my life. My mobility has also hit my ability to work as a photographer. I do still teach photography, but I have had to let my photography business go.

Roughly 20 years ago I joined a charity offering a listening service, and I have since joined a similar service. These are well known charities but I don't feel it is appropriate to say which ones on here. My work with these charities has highlighted the problems we all have, but especially us men.
But not only men struggle to talk. I feel that talking is key to relieving stress and helping mental well being. This is backed up by current research and is used in most therapies. I feel ACT offer a great structure that enables you to take control of your feelings and emotions.
I offer you a safe confidential place to explore your feelings. I can guide you as to your options. This may well be a visit to your GP, if I feel that you need medical help or deeper therapy. A lighter approach such as using ACT maybe all you need, and this I can offer you in my Shed.
I also have a YouTube Channel where you can hear me chatting about my counselling ethos
and style of talking therapies.
