Hi, I am Richard and I am an experienced qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.
I am a member of a professional body, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy,(BACP) as a member of this body I work to their ethical framework for good practice,  and this means I will work safely and ethically with my clients and always put the clients best interests at the forefront of our work together.
Entering into therapy/counselling can be a daunting feeling for many people, therefore it is important to me that the client feels that they have a safe place in which to explore the difficulties they are experiencing, and  that the working relationship is based upon trust, confidentiality and a non judgmental alliance.
I believe that I can, and do provide all of these qualities to my clients as well as warmth, understanding and empathy. It is also important to me that the work together is  at a pace that is comfortable for you the client. 
I work one to one with Adults, from rooms in Barnstaple & Bideford North Devon, and try to offer flexibility in appointment days and times.

I am an experienced Counsellor and have worked with many issues including:
Stress
Anxiety
Depression
Trauma
Loss
Bereavement
Relationships
Seperation
Divorce
Infidelity

I also have many years experience dealing with Trauma. PTSD, Anxiety and Stress in an Emergency Services environment.
I have also been working with a Bereavement Charity for over 5 years, working with bereaved clients and also as a Supervisor to other Bereavement volunteers.

My fees are £30 for the initial session including an assessment of your needs, and providing you are happy to enter into a working relationship together, subsequent fees are £40 per hour.
