About me

My name is Richard Wyatt and I am a qualified, Person-Centred Counsellor. I completed my Diploma in Counselling in 2008 at the University of Cumbria. I currently work in private practice based in Lancaster, and I have also worked as counsellor in a local secondary school since 2011. I have a number of years experience working in community drug and alcohol treatment across the northwest.

The way I like to work is to build a safe and trusting relationship with the client, based on acceptance, understanding and openness. This environment can enable the client to talk about and explore their personal issues; perhaps to a depth that they have been unable to achieve before. This process can help the person to make sense of their difficulties and make changes to their life that can lead to improvement.

My styles is of a non-directive nature, which means that the client decides what to talk about and the frequency and duration of therapy. I work from a number of locations within Lancaster and I am also able to visit people in their own home, as long as it is suitable for effective therapy to take place.

I work with issues such as a anxiety, panic attacks, stress, relationship and family issues, bereavement, loss, sexual abuse, physical abuse, trauma, depression, addiction, and anger management.
