Counselor

About

Occasionally our tensions, anxieties or repeated patterns of behaviour can feel overwhelming in their weight and complexity. I believe in the importance of establishing a solid relationship and building a space that enables new perspectives and insights which can help us disentangle the vast binds we find ourselves in.
 
We have a choice: to continue following unconscious patterns of behaviour, or, to expand our level of conscious awareness and enable new modes of being that allow us to build deeper, more meaningful relationships with ourselves and others.
 
I work integratively, which means that I utilise a number of different theoretical approaches in order to work uniquely with each client. I particularly focus on the manner in which past experiences can inform our modes of relating; bodily reactions; patterns of behaviour and how we interact with others. 


Qualifications and experience:

I have over over ten years experience in mental health working in various settings including: schools, prisons, supported accommodation for people with severe mental health diagnoses, and in higher education. Additionally, I have  held positions as a therapist in a Hospice providing support to people’s process of grief, as part of a low cost therapy service in West London and I run my own Private Practice.
 
I am a fully registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Overall     
I have been working with him for six months now. It hasn’t been an easy journey and I know I still have a long way to go. But I am deeply grateful for everything he said and did, for his compassion and empathy. Thank you Richard for standing by me even when I made it very difficult. You have created a space for me where I finally feel safe to work through emotions, thoughts and memories. I feel listened to and taken care of. It is a very healing experience.
I had a deeply transformative experience with this incredibly skilled therapist who helped me navigate and untangle my way through some complicated traumatic grief.
Excellent listener. Supportive, caring, and understanding with good advice.
I've been working with him for less than a week, but so far it's been great. I've had therapy in the past, but it feels as if for the very first time I am really understood. His feedbacks and questions are very valuable to me. It may be that for the very first time I'm just "ready" to listen, but I think he has also found the right words. Thank you.
I felt like his words meant a lot more to me in the first response than a lot of responses I've received from other live therapists. I wasn't planning on keeping my subscription long term, but he had me convinced immediately that he genuinely cared about helping me.
