Dr Jim's office2About Dr Jim Byrne’s Counselling and Psychotherapy services; plus his background education, training, qualifications, registrations and ethics codes.***

Are you looking for counselling or psychotherapy help which goes deeper and broader than the mainstream?

I offer my clients a unique fusion of counselling psychology; attachment theory; personality assessment; lifestyle counselling; life-history therapy; and life improvement strategies.

I offer this services as a combination of pre-counselling assessments (of personality, lifestyle, etc.); followed by a counselling meeting; followed by two weeks of psycho-educational (documentary) follow up.

This is a post-CBT system of counselling which is both deeper and broader than most conventional systems of counselling, psychotherapy and coaching. I help individuals (separately, or within couples) to understand themselves, their relationships and their surrounding environmental situations, so they can make better decisions about how to improve their lives.  When you become clear about who you are, how you relate to others, and where (precisely) you are in the (psychological) world, then your actions will be much more enjoyable and productive.  Read more…***

A good counsellor helps clients to overcome those difficulties they cannot manage on their own: “Counselling is a wonderful twentieth-century invention.  We live in a complex, busy, changing world.  In this world, there are many different types of experience that are difficult for people to cope with.  Most of the time we get on with life, but sometimes we are stopped in our tracks by an event or situation that we do not, at that moment, have the resources to sort out”.  If we cannot find ways to sort this out in our family, with our friends, or with a priest or doctor, etc., then “Counselling is a really useful option at these moments”. 

John McLeod, An Introduction to Counselling, 2003. (140)
