About me and my therapy practice

My name is Richard and I am an integrative counsellor which enables me to reach into many theories to empower your uniqueness and individualism. It provides me with a wider vision to help you, to see you build your confidence, self-esteem, resilience, understanding and to see you growing from life’s challenges. My experience includes working with adult mental health (MIND), bereavement and loss (Hospice work) and young peoples therapies (YCPS).

My practice is based just outside Chelmsford, offering a private, safe and relaxed setting.

You have taken the first step into beginning a new chapter in your life which can be a very difficult step to take. I do recognise how daunting this may feel, change and moving forward is something difficult to begin. By taking the journey with you, understanding you and your uniqueness, working together confidentially, exploring thoughts, feelings, emotions and beliefs, helping you to manage these and discover positive ways forward –changing your mindset from I can't to I can.

I have a concise life theory, ingrained with over 25 years of working life helping and engaging with others to me “you do matter”.

Offering 1 to 1 safe, secure, confidential, genuine, empathetic understanding with the aim to help you explore, connect thoughts, feelings and emotions. I work with all age groups from youth to retirees.

I can offer an initial assessment which will allow you to see if therapy feels right for you. If it is and you want to progress I can offer open ended counselling sessions and together we share your journey. Ultimately the decision to proceed is yours.

Recent experience in addition to private clients includes:

• St Francis Hospice - the recently bereaved

• Thurrock Mind - clients with multiple mental health issues including young people with exam anxiety & some couples therapy.

• Young Peoples Counselling Service - therapy sessions for teenagers.
