Hello and thank you for visiting my page. I'm Richard, and I am a qualified integrative therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in North Harrow, North West London.
We are all unique individuals and all experience times in our lives that may feel confusing or overwhelming. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can explore any issues that are troubling you. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ reason to seek therapy, no matter what the issue, talking about it usually helps.
As we are all unique, my approach to therapy is an integrative one, which means that I work with clients in a way that is most suited to them, by drawing on a number of different therapeutic models. But above all, I provide a warm, open and supportive space where you can be yourself. I work in a very straight forward, down to earth way, welcoming feedback and discussion of our time together as it progresses.
Therapy is not ‘giving advice’ but is a collaborative process which aims to help you to increase awareness and understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and to make desired changes to your life. It can be both insightful and empowering.
The first session
It's important you feel comfortable with your therapist, the only way to know this is to meet them. That's why I offer a half price initial session. This is a chance for us to meet and have an informal chat about what has brought you to therapy, and what your goals and expectations are, and for you to ask any questions you may have.
This initial session is a chance for you to decide how you feel about us working together, with of course absolutely no obligation to do so.
For any questions you may have, or to arrange a half price initial session please call, email or visit my website above.
