About me

I'm Richard, an experienced therapist who offers online counselling.

Struggling at work or at home, with anxiety, depression, low self esteem or family issues? Maybe you are bereaved? Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Counselling can be a space for you to talk about what's really bothering you, in confidence, without judgement, and for you to gradually find your own way forwards.

I offer person-centred therapy - online or over the telephone with flexible slots, including evenings/weekends. 

Person-centred therapy is a listening therapy, a way for you to gain understanding of your life, within a safe and non-judgmental space.

Counselling can give you perspective and a sense of empowerment. It holds up a mirror to what's going on, a way to find solutions or just to feel better by talking to someone who is independent.

I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, depression, family issues, low self-esteem, relationships and work issues. As well as the areas mentioned, I'm also experienced at working with clients who identify as being LGBT, or anyone struggling with sexuality or identity. Perhaps you are in the process of 'coming out.'

I also have experience of working with bereavement and grief and can walk alongside you as you share your feelings of loss and had to re-navigate the life you thought you had.

Counselling allows you time to reflect and process. You talk about what you like, there is no agenda. The purpose is for you to start to feel more in control.

Please get in touch with me to find out how we could work together.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
