Firstly see if there is any dead wood within the bush. It sounds like a rambler or short climber, difficult to tell without a picture. Cut any dead wood out first. You can do this now and it will look better for it. I'd then wait till say March before taking it on again. I'm reluctant to advise on further pruning as climbers and ramblers need different pruning. Could you post a picture as this will help with further advice.
To post a picture click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above the dialogue box, you'll get plenty of help once we know more.
