Dr Brian Kaplan - Holistic Medical Doctor, Counsellor and Natural Therapist
Dr. Brian Kaplan is a qualified medical doctor specialising in Whole Person Medicine, Autogenic Training (a powerful relaxation technique) and Provocative Therapy, the use of reverse psychology and humour in brief psychotherapy and Classical Homeopathy
Whole Person Medicine includes the best of conventional medicine as well as holistic and naturopathic approaches which aim to encourage the body to heal itself. Learning to reduce stress dramatically with the powerful method of Autogenic Training is an important part of his vision of Whole Person Medicine.
In addressing the needs of the whole person, psychological issues are very important to Dr Kaplan. To help people improve their relationships, create new relationships and get more out of their work, he uses Provocative Therapy. This ultra-brief form of therapy or coaching provokes patients to come up with their own solutions to their issues - and enact them. Improved relationships may also contribute to improved physical health.
Brian became a doctor because he wanted to work with people and make them feel better – physically and psychologically. A six-year programme at medical school taught him a lot about medical science but working with people has been a life-time journey for him. He has studied Classical Homeopathy and written a book on the subject, The Homeopathic Conversation, (Natural Medicine Press 2001I)
Since qualifying as a doctor in 1980, Brian has continued to be passionate about learning about medical tools that empower people to get better and feel better about themselves.
International Practice: All initial consultations on video. Clinical examinations and blood tests will be arranged for your convenience.

Dr. Brian Kaplan treated me earlier this year when I had Covid 19. He is extremely helpful and reassuring, I highly recommend him.
Very helpful, informative and interested
I have known Dr Kaplan for 35 years, when first considering alternative approches to controversial vaccinations for our first daughter. He has cared for all three of my daughters, and me, ever since. Over the years he has grown in wisdom and understanding.I would sum him up an a quintessential "healer". Just this year I suffered from a terrible itching all over my skin. I consulted skin specialists, who drew a blank. Then, like Sherlock Holmes, he tracked it back to spider bite, prescribed me the suitable homoeopathic remedy and within 3 weeks, 5 months of discomfort came to an end. He is an excellent commununicator, with a healthy sense of humour. Understands life, without being judgemental.
Brian Kaplan has been looking after me and my family for 35 years. One of his many strengths is that his expertise extends beyond conventional medicine to complementary approaches, which can often achieve better outcomes. He is kind, warm, patient, and understanding. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
I have been visiting Dr Kaplan for over 30 years. He has always been extremely helpful and kind. He takes great trouble. Very good too that he is a qualified doctor, so he knows a huge amount and can give lots of general advice.
Easy to share problems with Brian
I have been a patient of Dr Kaplan for 37 years. Over that time he has treated versions health conditions both physical and mental. From the very first moment I met him, his nature and tone of voice immediately put me at ease and I have put my full trust in him time and time again with incredible results. He has also treated my children on more than one occasion. His knowledge is so extensive and his manner so professional yet personable I would never hesitate to recommend him and have done so several times. I am forever grateful my parents found him to treat my eczema all those years ago when conventional medicine just couldn’t help. I still use all the remedies today that he advised me to use then if I find myself in a flare up.
I found Dr Kaplan reassuring and professional
I found Dr Kaplan most empathic and understanding, with a warmth and a truly unmistakable kindness that was so reassuring. I never felt under time pressure during consultations. I could tell from his questions to me that he was considering my case much more holistically than I’ve experienced with other doctors. My confidence in him proved well deserved, with my health problem, and actually my general well-being too, benefitting greatly from his help and expertise. I am most grateful to him.
My family (including 3 grown up daughters) and I have been patients of Brian for 35 years. He has never let us down and always supported us. He is a kind and patient Doctor who will give you whatever time you need. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful, courteous and professional physician. In particular, he guided me through a stressful time in my life with Autogenic Training - a revelation!
