Richard Marcer MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
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.
