Hello, I’m Richard, I am a qualified UKCP and BACP integrative psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in Harrow, North West London. I have a BSc(Hons) in Psychology and a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute, where I am currently completing a Counselling Psychology Doctorate.
We all experience times in our lives that may feel confusing or overwhelming. Psychotherapy and counselling provide a confidential and non-judgemental space where you can explore any issues that are troubling you. There is no right or wrong reason to seek therapy, no matter what the issue, talking about it usually helps.
My approach to therapy is an integrative one, which means that I work in a way that is most suited to you and your goals. I draw upon a range of theories and techniques from different approaches including psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and CBT. But above all, I provide a warm, open and supportive space where you can be yourself. I work in a straight forward, down to earth way, welcoming feedback and discussion of our time together as it progresses.
Therapy is not ‘giving advice’ but is a collaborative process which aims to help you to increase awareness and understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and to make desired changes to your life. Therapy can be both insightful and empowering.
