Hi. My name is Richard. I've been working as a psychological coach since 2002 and as a registered psychotherapist since 2008.
I offer psychotherapy that synthesises energy work with insights and practices from NLP, Clean Language, Family Constellations, Hypnosis, Time Line Therapy, and Shamanism.
I like to start with your everyday experience of being. As we talk there will probably be a moment when you touch on something that evokes an emotional response.
I felt safe and held by Richard whilst visiting places inside of me that were uncomfortable. His way of reflecting back helped me to understand and move through my issues. I see Richard as a valued ally in my ongoing journey of personal discovery.
A new path Counselling
When people visit my site it is usually because they are going through a very difficult time in their lives and are feeling a real need to get the right kind of help and support.
People seek help when their thoughts and feelings become difficult to manage, which can often result in feeling overwhelmed. You may be feeling confused about a situation or you may be struggling to make sense of things.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. Our work together may be short-term or open-ended. The models of the mind I use allow us to work together on any issue you bring.
I have worked in professional practice since 1991.

On an existential level its a heart warming experience to give the gift of freedom even liberation to others who are suffering. A life without giving is an isolated one. We all need others, whether we warm to that idea or not. Living with chronic anxiety or enduring depression can feel very isolating and lonely. Our capitalist culture often increases our sense of alienation and separation.
So my being a therapist is one of the ways in which I attempt to help others to move beyond the isolation they may be experiencing and make deeper, more helpful connections.
I will admit that In attempting to help others my life is enriched. I have a sense that I am in greater harmony with others and the world. The money I receive from clients means I can then be generous to others. I do less paid work and more volunteering now.
Why should our clients choose you?
My colleagues and people who I meet inform me that my clients must get a lot from me.
I am very committed to helping others and the change process.. Its not just a job it's a vocation.
My clients inform me that I have significant awareness of cultural diversity.
I am non judgemental, friendly and open minded therapist and have been running a successful private practice for 10 years.
I'm a practicing Buddhist and work on my mind regularly. I try to walk my talk, and of course at times fail brilliantly.
What inspired you to start your own business?
The opportunity to work at the heart of humanity. Seeing others grow beyond their early conditioning and flower is an unmatched satisfactoriness.
In my own way being a therapist supports my desire to make the world a better place. For this to happen we need human beings with fit minds in touch with their emotional experience to take on this responsibility.
