Richard Bishop MBACP
231 Shoreditch High Street
My name is Richard Bishop and I work integratively, integrating the psychodynamic and person-centred approaches with eight years experience working within the NHS mental health sector, private practice and charitable counselling organisations.
We all go though times in our lives when it feels tougher than normal or we've experienced one setback after another; and it's at these times that it can help to have someone to talk to. I offer a safe, professional space where there is the freedom to discuss personal issues without being judged. The emphasis on the work will be to explore and untangle those issues that can often seem too complicated or overwhelming to deal with.
It can be difficult to find the time to engage with the therapeutic process and even planning the first contact can bring anxiety issues to the surface, however it might be the start of seeing some change in your life.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I work with adults with a wide range of issues including depression, relationship issues, self esteem, identity issues, anger and bereavement; for short or long term counselling. The goals we will work towards will be discussed and agreed at the start with the aim of understanding and empowering you to enhance your life.
