Richard Cross UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Child Psychotherapist
I have 20 years post qualifying experience of providing sensitive support to clients who require the highest degree of confidentiality and discretion. I am a UKCP registered / accredited Psychotherapist and Child Psychotherapist.
I have expertise in helping clients with the following concerns:
- Trauma disorders (trained in EMDR & TF-CBT etc)
- Dissociative disorders (childhood abuse, ritual abuse etc)
- Addictions (sexual compulsivity and addiction, substances etc)
“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”
My work focuses on attaining positive change to allow clients to attain and maximise their potential across all areas in life such are work, relationships, health and education etc.
I also accept instructions for expert witness work in civil, criminal and family court work relating to trauma, abuse and neglect. This harnesses the training I have undertaken in clinical assessment of children and young people.
I present nationally and internationally on the subject of trauma and attachment.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss any matter which may bring you to counselling.
