Dr Victoria Richer HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist
I am a HCPC registered Chartered Clinical Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS) based in the heart of Newmarket, only a 20 minute drive from Cambridge or Bury St Edmunds, with easy access to parking.
All of the therapies that I offer have a solid theoretical underpinning and a robust evidence base as to their effectiveness.
I am committed to providing the highest quality service, tailored to meet your individual needs. I believe that everyone in need of support should be able to access therapy. Whether this is to overcome mental health difficulties, navigate significant life changes, or simply to provide a space to reflect and challenge yourself to reach your full potential, such a service can help.
During our initial sessions we will focus on gaining an in-depth understanding of what you would like to achieve and begin to unpick the patterns which are keeping you stuck. We will form a partnership to co-create goals and formulate the most suitable therapy for you. We will agree the number of treatment sessions that the therapy is likely to take and review this on a regular basis.
Whatever your own personal goals, we can work together to help you achieve them.
