My name is Richard, and I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I am based in Yeovil, Somerset. Offering short and long-term therapy, I work with adults and young people who come to me with a diverse range of presenting issues. Each session lasts 50 minutes and is typically scheduled on a weekly basis. I provide both face-to-face and online counselling services with availability during the day and evenings.
I know that the next step can be extremely difficult
Making the decision to look for a counsellor is often difficult, and sometimes, it is the hardest thing to do. It can take a lot of bravery and emotional resources to take that first step. If you do get in touch, I will try to make the process as easy as I can.
I will always aim to respond to emails, texts and voicemails within 48 hours, and if you do not hear back from me within that time, please feel free to make contact again.
Our first step together will be to arrange a 15 min telephone call so you can decide if I am the right person for you and if I can offer what you need. I will also email you my counselling working agreement to give you a better idea of what to expect during our sessions.

How Counselling Can Benefit You
At various points in our lives, we all face challenges and obstacles. These difficulties often arise during times of change, uncertainty, isolation, or stress. They can be related to specific events or situations, both past and present, or they may revolve around various aspects such as childhood, relationships, communication, health, bereavement, self-esteem, sexuality, low moods, motivation, or work-related concerns.
Support from others is vital to our emotional well-being. However, sometimes we may find ourselves 'stuck' in a rut or struggling with sensitive issues that could benefit from a neutral professional approach. Growth Counselling offers a safe and confidential space to express and contemplate your worries. It provides an environment free from judgment, allowing you to:
Enhance your relationships
Gain a deeper understanding of your issues
Discover strategies for personal growth and wellbeing
Facilitate decision-making processes
Explore and address past or current difficulties
If you are considering counselling and have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
