GUILDFORD THERAPY – Brian Shand (BA, MSc, PhD, Mem.Inst.GA)

I am an experienced, qualified and UKCP-accredited psychotherapist based at Fairlands Medical Centre.

There are times in all our lives when we run into emotional difficulties. Sometimes we can sort them out by ourselves or with the help of friends and family. At other times – rather like a tractor stuck in the mud needing another tractor to pull it out – it may be helpful to have some professional help. Psychotherapy is a talking therapy which goes to the roots of difficulties. Among many problems where it can make a difference are: personal relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, guilt, lack of confidence, self-worth and assertiveness, shame, loneliness, abuse, trauma, burn-out, loss and bereavement, bullying, blocked creativity and other issues relating to personal development and fulfilment.

I offer group and individual psychotherapy. Both provide safe, confidential settings where painful feelings can be explored. I am one of very few group therapists in private practice in Surrey.

To see whether psychotherapy might help you, do get in touch. Just leave a message on 07972 538764, giving me some times when I can call you back or email me at For more information, have a look at my website at

I look forward to hearing from you.
