Dr Richard Hornby
I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and also have many years experience of working as a doctor. I work with young adults and adult clients who are seeking help with a wide range of problems including anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions, phobias, bereavement, relational and sexual problems, low self-esteem, difficulties in making choices and transitions, eating disorders and problems stemming from childhood, bodily illnesses with emotional components. I am particularly interested in trauma.
If you choose to work with me, you will find that I work in an empathic and sensitive way in a comfortable and confidential setting in order to help alleviate your symptoms and reduce levels of discomfort by helping you to gain insight into your problems.
I am fully insured and receive regular professional supervision and postgraduate education. I also abide by the code of professional ethics of the BACP of which I am a member.
