Richard Moll MSc, UKCP Registered
Hello. I am interested in what brings you here today. Perhaps there are relationship issues with others and you feel lonely, or work is stressful. Maybe you don’t feel good about yourself or are experiencing anxiety or depression. Might it be that things just don’t feel right and it is hard to know where to turn? Are you seeking to go in a different direction and to achieve your potential?
How I can help
If you can relate to any of these then therapy offers a way to a better place and can help you to feel differently. By coming to therapy you can share your issues and burdens with me, I will be with you in your difficulties and support you to heal and to grow.
I will offer a safe space where you can speak whatever is on your mind. It can be really helpful to be properly listened to and to express your concerns without feeling judged, maybe for the first time. We can work together to untangle your thoughts and feelings, and improve how you cope, and help you to be in control. I will be sensitive to you and your needs. At times I may gently suggest alternative perspectives. Together we can work out how you can get to a better place.
You may be unsure about therapy and want to know if it is for you. Or perhaps you are at the stage of considering starting therapy; it is important to find the right therapist. If you think I may be able to help then why not phone me for a no commitment chat? I realise that reaching out can be difficult, I will help you to feel at ease, and will respond to your questions and concerns.
If you want to continue further then the next step could be an initial meeting. This is an opportunity to talk more about your concerns and what you might hope for from therapy. You will be able to see if I am the right person for you and that the kind of therapy I offer suits you. There is no obligation to continue.
If we decide to work together then we would meet for a 50 minute session at a regular time each week. If that is not possible then I may be able to offer a more flexible arrangement.
Who are my clients?
The answer is people like you and me! I enjoy offering therapy to a variety of clients, of different ages, genders, backgrounds, ethnicity and beliefs.
About me and my approach
I am a qualified and experienced integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. Integrative means that I use different types of therapy as is best suited to you and your unique needs. My approach emphasises the relationship between client and therapist, it is the connection between us that enables us to talk and work together. I will help you to feel supported and understood, and provide an environment in which you can change and grow.
I became a therapist because I used to listen to people in a volunteer role, I liked doing the role and was struck by how listening could have such a powerful effect. I believe that people change and grow for themselves, but that the support of another person can be very helpful and may even be transformative. I see my focus as being on understanding, support, guidance and encouragement.
Do you want to find out more? Then you can phone or email me. Or my website (link at the top of the page) gives more of an idea of what you can expect from me and has information about therapy and what it might mean for you.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Your experience may not fit into a single neat box, that is normal. What matters is the effect that your issues are having on you.
Issues that I work with which are not in the formal classifications include feeling sad, relationship issues, family issues and separation anxiety.
My standard fee is £45-50 a session; if that is not affordable then please do talk to me as I offer some concessions.
The time that therapy takes will depend on your needs and the issues that you wish to consider, it will be your choice.
