About me

Hi, I am Richard and I am an experienced qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.

I am a member of a professional body, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy,(BACP) as a member of this body I work to their ethical framework for good practice, and this means I will work safely and ethically with my clients and always put the clients best interests at the forefront of our work together.

Entering into therapy/counselling can be a daunting feeling for many people, therefore it is important to me that the client feels that they have a safe place in which to explore the difficulties they are experiencing, and that the working relationship is based upon trust, confidentiality and a non judgmental alliance.

I believe that I can, and do provide all of these qualities to my clients as well as warmth, understanding and empathy. It is also important to me that the work together is at a pace that is comfortable for you the client.

I work one to one with Adults, from rooms in Barnstaple & Bideford North Devon, and try to offer flexibility in appointment days and times.

I have experience in working with many issues including:

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Feeling Sad



I also have many years experience in dealing with the affects of Trauma, PTSD, Stress , Anxiety & Depression with service personnel in an Emergency services Environment.
