About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Richard Bird, Happy new year for 2021, thank you for visiting my page. In these challenging times, it is as important as ever to self-care and look after our mental wellbeing. 

My background is that in my former career, I have 30 years experience working up to Director level in Investment banking In the City of London. I worked mainly for banks, including Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers. 

Whilst I work with a broad range of clients, I have particular experience with:

  • Enabling men to manage their issues, at work or home
  • Supporting people in their relationships 
  • Working with professional people to meet their goals

I will offer a complimentary introductory meeting, which can help you decide if you wish to proceed with counselling.  

I am trained to Post Graduate Level 5 Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) and have 30 years experience of working in the financial industry (Investment banking.)
