About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Richard & I’m a therapist based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

I originally qualified in 2007 and have continued to work under my core beliefs of the person-centred model, helping people to explore challenges they may be experiencing and working together with clients at their own pace to help find a way forward. I am also a trained EMDR practitioner, which provides me with additional skills to help those affected by ongoing symptoms of trauma.

My career has provided opportunities to work within many different settings, including managing a busy NHS service, working in prisons/courts helping offenders rehabilitate into the community, working with many voluntary sector providers and also significant experience in major multi-national corporate organisations. In addition I’ve also maintained my private practice work.

Inherently my central focus is that we are all equal and I offer a space and time that is welcoming, judgement-free, professional and safe, to work with the many different and diverse reasons why people may choose to talk with a therapist.

We all experience many different life experiences, some of which may be expected/foreseen but sometimes events and emotions take us by surprise and we may need that extra support, no matter who we are or what our circumstances, to work through things.

For an initial conversation to talk about how we may be able to work together then please don't hesitate to call, or find out more about me, my services and my experience at

I look forward to us working together or in the least, with my extensive knowledge and connections, assisting you to connect with the right people who may be able to help with your individual situation.
