About

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. 

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.

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.

I am so grateful to you for seeing my son. It has meant a lot to him and to me. Thank you for being so spontaneous and warm. My son was very impressed by your attitude and obviously what you said made a big impact on him. He is making a huge effort to come to terms with so much. Thank you so much for everything

One purpose of this note is (very belatedly) to express the thanks of my wife and I for your visit to her during her period in the Wellington Hospital. She was greatly cheered by your visit - a reaction of many benefits to her. Thank you

I was referred to see Dr Kaplan by my long-time GP and on the first session he immediately identified the underlying issue I needed help with, which I was not able to talk about. I have found my sessions to be very valuable and thought provoking to the point where I now attend a few times a year when I need to get "back on track". Dr Kaplan is a very caring and understanding therapist with a unique insight and knowledge in his field. I always feel incredibly supported whatever the reason for my visits

Brian is an exceptional physician, who is approachable and always listens carefully to what you have to say. He treats you as a real person rather than simply focusing on your symptoms, and always recommends a treatment or therapy that is right for you as an individual. He is a man of great integrity who is highly compassionate and cares about his patients, and in my experience, has often been able to solve health problems that other doctors have not been able to cure. I have known him for over 30 years and have no hesitation in recommending him.

I was fortunate to find Brian at a pretty difficult time in my life. Brian not only gave me the support and help that I so desperately needed to get through that chapter but I always left feeling that he absolutely always had my back. Once we’d navigated my emotional minefields, he worked tirelessly helping me find the tools within me to cope and master life in the future. He can be provocative but if you’re well versed in talking yourself into despair this is a brilliant way to begin to unpick the problem and see a new way forward. What I have learnt from him I will carry always and its turned my life around in a way I did not think possible.

For the last fifteen years I have been visiting Dr Kaplan once or twice a year whenever I am feeling “under the weather “, and somehow the consultation – which might range from symptoms to favourite poems – always seems to make me feel better, whether he prescribes some medicine or merely makes me realise I can improve my own health. As a perpetual worrier the autogenic course proved an enormous help too.

Brian is a gifted therapist. He creates a warm & safe environment to open up in. He is astute at getting to the heart of a problem, and I feel I have made great strides in furthering my own personal life and goals under his care. I would highly recommend his practice.
