Richard Durrant - Dip. Couns - individual member of BACP
I’m very aware that people with pre-existing anxiety may find it harder to cope at this current time. As well as face to face counselling, I am also offering telephone counselling or online support to help you find ways to get through this particularly difficult time. Feel free to give me a call or text if you’d like me to explain how to arrange a session. Also what to expect from counselling if you haven’t been before.
I am a qualified counsellor and work as a member of the BACP. I carried out my training over five years at West Cheshire College in the North West of England.
Integrative counselling allows me to draw on three different strands of counselling theory, teamed with the ethical code I am bound by under the BACP, this means I am always working with the client's best interests at heart.
I have worked with a wide range of clients suffering from an equally wide range of issues and whereby I understand that every person's experiences are different, I am able to draw on my knowledge to help establish a close empathic understanding.
I am an open, honest, trustworthy counsellor able to create a safe and confidential place for the client to open up and work toward helping themselves.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

I charge £40 for a session which is between 50 minutes to an hour. £30 for people on low income.
