About me

Hi, I’m Richard. I am a HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and I work with a range of people who have had challenging moments in their lives. My specialties include supporting people who live with chronic health conditions or life changing injuries. I have worked in the NHS for over 10 years, working with patients in a wide range of circumstances including those undergoing treatment for conditions such as cancer and diabetes, as well as those in palliative care and in surgical settings. I have seen a range of issues including anxiety, low mood and depression, loss, grief and trauma. I have worked engage with people from LGBTQ+ for many years and work in an affirmative way around this. I have also expertise in supporting people who live with dyslexia, autism, ADHD and other neurodivergent presentations. In this work I often support people understand how they see the world and how they can live in a 'neurotypical' world without burning out. I have expertise in evidence based approaches to support people with the difficulties they face. The models I work with include; CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and Narrative Therapy. I am trained in assessing what you are going through and how best to tailor therapy to meet your needs. My underlying approach is a compassionate, strength focused approach therapy to help you grow. If you find yourself struggling to make sense of things, lost in grief or trauma or simply feel stuck. I may be able to help you.
