Hello, I'm Richard and my interest in psychology goes back over 20 years, including spending over one year in meditation retreat. I am also interested in physical practices that aid well being.
Using the Human Givens approach.
I am a qualified Human Givens Psychotherapist working in a practical way with clients, to help them meet the needs and goals they have. The pace of the sessions is set in response to what the client needs, and methods used based on what the client requires at the time.
I utilise a range of therapeutic skills to quickly help clients move in the right direction, feel better and change behaviour. I work with a range of issues including: depression, anxiety, OCD, stress, anger, trauma, sleep difficulties, behaviour change and habit formation.
I would like to thank-you for making this first step in looking for a therapist.
I know it can be difficult to know where to begin. I offer a 15 minute initial conversation so that you can get a sense of how I work and if you feel it will help you - you can either call or email me and we can arrange a time...
And whilst some therapies claim you need to “feel worse before you feel better”, the approach I use offers tools that quickly help us move in the right direction - please get in touch.
