Hello and a warm welcome. 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. I provide both face-to-face and online counselling with availability during the day and evenings.
I understand that it is a difficult decision to seek counselling and finding the right counsellor can be overwhelming. Therefore I invite you to take your time to explore my website and profile and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information.
I have always felt passionate about supporting people through complex and challenging times. My deeply held belief rests on the notion that every person possesses an innate drive to achieve their utmost potential, to grow and become the finest version of themselves. This belief serves as a guiding principle as I strive to create an environment for my clients that is not only confidential but also supportive, empathetic, and non-judgmental.
In my practice, I embrace an integrative approach to counselling, which draws upon a diverse range of therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, person-centred and psychodynamic theory. Rather than adhering rigidly to a singular theory, I have recognised the value of incorporating different approaches to best tailor your specific needs. This approach allows for flexibility and adaptability as I work with you to explore and understand your experiences, emotions, and challenges.
I aim to refrain from offering direct advice or dictating actions but rather to inspire and empower you to explore various avenues for resolving your challenges. To provide you the autonomy to determine the most suitable and effective means of progressing and achieving your goals.
