Relationship and Marriage Counselling

We done marriage counselling with Ian Epstein. I can honestly say I wouldn’t fault it

When we first meet Ian our relationship was in pieces he was our last hope. We followed everything he asked us to do, and it help us piece back our relationship. We still have a bit to go but we are on the right road and never be happier.
We can’t thank him enough.

Therapist

I was initially very skeptical of Ian's approach to therapy, I'd tried a lot of mind over matter self-help online but with no real lasting results. Ian's helped dispelled a lot of my misgivings, his friendliness and approachability make him very accessible. His flexibility has really helped me work on my wellness in very difficult times. He's always willing to to explain why he uses his methods and techniques, which really puts me at ease . Can't recommend him enough if you are looking to start therapy or guided meditation and a little bit nervous about it. More...

Ian is a wonderful counsellor. I had never done counselling before as I was afraid. Ian has made me feel so comfortable and helped me so much with my postnatal depression and anxiety. He is amazing at what he does and I could not recommend him enough! More...

I went to Ian at a very low point in my life in Dec2020. I lost my happiness and calm self to chronic stress and anxiety from work/home life. I relied on medication to help me through stressful situations. I couldn't even say 'Hi' to someone without thinking I said it wrong.

Ian helped me overcome stress and anxiety with his techniques that I practice daily. I feel more peaceful and calm entering what I would have broken down into a panic attack and thankfully haven't taken any medication since January. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone going through a hard time in their lives as he really lifted me out of mine. I wouldn't have reached my goal to overcome if it wasn't for Ian.
Thank you so much.

Relationship and Marriage Counselling

I hired Ian as my marriage wasn't in a great place and heading for separation. Ian helped us to communicate better with each other and listen to what each other was saying and how we felt. It made a huge difference as little arguments were turning into huge ones and not speaking for weeks. After our first session there was already a huge difference. We did sessions together and individually which was brilliant. I'd highly recommend Ian, he gave us the tools to save our marriage More...

I had another session it was worse he put a tape of someone else talking for 35 min and it was it!!! he should not be here, avoid seriously More...

We reached out To Ian for couples counselling and agreed to see him individually to tell our side of the story separately. my consult lasted 20 mins before he said he had heard enough and would speak to my wife. 73 euro for 20 mins. He did the same 20 min consult with my wife and when she questioned him on the price he reduced the rate to 50euro then backtracked and said that he had agreed with me that my fee would cover both consults. This was was a lie. Nothing of the sort was discussed. There is no way I would recommend or trust someone who operates in this manner. More...

With couple's counselling information gathering is very important. There is no reason to repeat the conversation over an over. 45 mins overall all is normal. Especially when the couple is not together.

I went for the Hypno band as Ian rang me and explained it in great detail. I was sceptical at first but curious. I have always had such a huge apatite and dieting never helped me to lose weight. I was 18stone at the beginning of my sessions and now I am 16st 12lbs. I haven't seen 16 stone on my scale since I was 16! I eat and binge less, I am able to say no to takeaways and more food when people offer and stay disciplined enough to eat healthily. And genuinely enjoy it. I really enjoyed my experience. More...

Bad experience, had my 1st couple zoom session online with this therapist but only LASTED 20 MIN! when I asked why he replied with "I believe in quality rather than quantity"! which I thought this guy has no clue and we did not feel like we got anything from it! but in the end, we were advised to start journaling each separately. He had suggested during the session that I try his relaxation technique so my partner said why not try it I agreed to it so had one individual session 2 days later, I regretted so much doing it, this time it lasted about 35 min max he put on a recorded tape (his own); sort of hypnotherapy, the sound was so bad! because it is a zoom video, the sound was not good, glitches and his tape recorder sounded far, we went straight into it btw and he finished when the tape was over there were no questions concerning me or what I was feeling or whatever ... I had counselling sessions before in my life and my partner too but I am sorry I must say this was the worst experience ever! Seriously Avoid waste of our money. More...

It's brings great concern when your partner who you've been with for 3 years starts acting different, staying out late than he used to, texting frequently even though he's a terrible texter even taking calls in private, I'd have to be stupid to not suspect anything right? But I endured it all still. When I decided to take action was when at a weekend hangout with family he came to me saying he had to go make a quick run for his boss and would be back in a few hours, I had went to bed the next day before he got back that night so the next day I sought a tech expert who'd help me find out who he was always talking to, I found plutocloud and gave him the job and he came through with results. i saw all his mails,Whatsapp,Email,Gps,Snapchat,instagram,facebook,kik,hangout,viber And Any Other Social Media Accounts, saw his deleted messages, and monitor voice call from my phone without touching his.Apparently my husband was just being busy and text history made me understand that they were slacking on sales and had to put extra effort, I just wished he had told me that was it instead of letting me worry, regardless kudos to cloudbase for saving my relationship. Here's his contact links at CLOUDBASEHACK @ G MAIL if anyone needs his services More...

The reason behind the 5 stars is that this is different than other therapists i have been with, in a good way.
I felt like i was able to open up more and get to the root of the problems rather than finding temporary solutions.
Defiantly would reccommend.

I would like to take the time to thank Ian for his help over the last year. Ian was recommended to me by a very good friend as a very good and experienced therapist. From the moment I meet Ian he made me feel relaxed and at ease. I had a stressful few years and I just felt the need to talk to a counsellor and I was glad Ian was recommended to me. My partner had passed away suddenly and Ian helped to come to terms with it the best possible way. I would gladly recommend Confidential Counselling. Thanks for your kindness Ian. More...

I first attended Ian in January as I wanted to give up smoking for the new year. I was a bit wary at first but he made me feel very relaxed from the off. After just 3 sessions I was off the fags and I haven't gone back on so far. I have gone back for the odd refresher session but not for a while. The money I saved on fags easily paid for the session fees. I also joined a gym so feeling a lot fitter all round. I recommend Ian if you want to get of the fags for good. More...
