“I met Richard when I was facing probably one of the most critical challenge in my life. Richard started by explaining to me with such clarity, the mechanisms underlaying my emotional feelings. With this first instance scientific approach, he helped me going beyond what seemed to be totally out of control and foreign feelings. Getting a picture of the mechanisms involved grounded me and kind of stopped my fall. Then, Richard very naturally added his compassion, his understanding as a thoughtful human being and together with the first scientific approach it achieved to bring me all the support I needed and the strategy how to deal with what I was going through. Throughout the sessions, Richard has also very discretely but strongly enhanced my self-confidence, he was very honest, always leaving reality being what it was, just helping me dealing with it but never underestimating or changing it. Considering his action as a trigger of my own resilience, he gave me technics and keys which I could use long term after I stopped seeing him. Richard has an outstanding knowledge of psychological mechanisms, and is a very compassionate therapist, combining both skills makes him a very special professional. So cleverly, he understood my pain and brought the help I needed, the way I needed to receive it. “

Explanation (5/5)
Rich is a top guy and an exceptional therapist! His unique style is far removed from the stagnant, clinical stereotype often associated with psychologists. Positive, empathetic, a great listener and very knowledgeable-it feels very easy and very comfortable ‘off loading’ to him. Rather than dwelling on past events, Rich focusses more on the here and now. I leave each session feeling re-energised and focussed, armed with lots of ideas and strategies for improvement and progression. I thoroughly recommend him.

Richard has been fantastic. He really listens to you and sees you for all of who you are, not just your medical history. I have learnt so much about myself and how to cope with my pain in his sessions. It really has been eye-opening and extremely helpful.
