Richard Cupid (Prof.Dip Psy C.)
The first step is the hardest and the thought of talking is scarry.
I will work with you to explore emotional pain, helping you to express how you feel and find comfort from emotinal pain and trauma. This means I will sit with you and stay with you, untill you are ready to exspress how you are feeling and gain confidence in your emotions.
I believe that everyone is unique and need different approaches to find what they need in therapy. I continue to develop my skills and approaches to help and offer a beneficial experience allowing anyone to grow and develop during and beyond every session,d because of this we can always learn from each other, building on our experience to find your nourishment from emotional pain.
I am a proactive therapist, offering different ways of looking at feelings and situation, this includes challenging you and working with you to develop a deeper understanding of who you are and the boundaries you need and the ones you do not.
