Psychotherapy and Counselling

If you’re stressed, just need someone to talk to, not sure which way to go, maybe feeling a little confused or isolated, then counselling can help.

Talking in a neutral setting can be very helpful as it can assist you in finding ways around problems that have maybe been around for years, or getting through something more recent.

To do this, I try to understand your situation, to either find ways of coping or new ways of living.

This process can at times be difficult, and therefore it is always done with a serious attention given to patience and acceptance.

How Can I Help?

I have experience working with the areas below. 
  • Struggling with anxiety and fear
  • Feelings that seem out of control, or overwhelming. Or a lack of feeling, or experience of life.
  • Thoughts that are maybe unpleasant, or invasive, and making life more difficult.
  • Anger and frustration. Some have problems with explosive anger, others with trying to express how they feel in case they offend others
  • Stress and burnout in relation to work, a sudden life crises, or maybe feeling overwhelmed by many different stressors all happening together.
  • A sense of feeling you have less value than others
  • Compulsive behaviours, a sense that a behaviour is difficult to control
  • Somatic reactions or physical symptoms that possibly have a psychological cause
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexual issues
  • Questions over identity
  • Past traumatic events, such as abuse or an assault, that are still affecting life today

Avoiding rejection and disapproval is no longer a primary concern. These small but significant changes together have brought me to a place where I feel, … Continue reading IT Manager

It would be fair to say I had viewed the idea of counselling with some scepticism. I come from a macho profession in which people are expected to simply lick their wounds, and move on. But seeing Richard was transformational, and one the best things I have done for myself. I highly recommend him to … Continue reading Lawyer


I learned to hear my inner dialogue, to feel the emotions and be comfortable with all that is going on. Helped with the  fear or the natural resisting and burying of “bad” parts of me… so I now see them as “just one part of many making up a balanced whole” … ‘bad’ was not … Continue reading Teacher
