Very responsive when I first got in touch with my needs/preferences on therapist. I find the physical space and building one where I feel safe and comfortable coming to. Sometimes been trickier finding a time which suits both therapist and me but I know they always try and be as flexible as possible to facilitate me.

An excellent experience of counselling. It has been a really beneficial in helping me to understand why I think the way I do (and what it means to be human!) which has been valuable in enabling me to take some control of my life.

In my twenty plus years of seeing various mental health professionals for depression and related issues, Louise is the only one to have truly helped me better understand my mind and help myself. Our therapy sessions are tailored to my needs - evolving over time as I do - and I feel completely comfortable being myself and truly opening up. I feel very lucky to have found Louise; our sessions have been life changing.

My experience here has been fantastic. Richard and his team provide a safe and welcoming environment. A safe haven from the "real world"

Really helpful experience. Lovely and insightful therapist who made me feel extremely comfortable in the process. I would recommend to anyone looking to understand their thoughts, feelings and reactions better, and in a safe environment.

Richard has been an invaluable source of support over the last several months, he approaches things in an open and non-judgemental way and shows an incredible depth of understanding. Over the years I have accessed several different therapists and counsellors and this has been my most positive and beneficial experience of therapy.

I had done therapy for several years before I began working with Richard. It had certainly helped me understand how my upbringing had scarred me and made my probably innate tendency to depression much worse. But it had also left me with a kind of emotional hangover. The feeling of devastation and confusion persisted more than two years after ending with my previous therapist. I had heard and read about ACT, and it seemed to me that this might offer a more practical way to deal with those still painful feelings. This turned out to be true, but I doubt if the technique would have worked so well if I hadn't also enjoyed working with Richard so much. He never put pressure on me to reveal my thoughts or feelings - or if he did, it was so subtle I didn't notice - but even after many years of therapy I was surprised at how easy it was to reveal my darkest and saddest thoughts to him. I soon found that my mind would start 'preparing' for each session, selecting a theme and homing in on it without my making any conscious decision to do so. Richard sessions then provided a calm, safe, contained space in which to explore that theme - but also to deal with anything that might suddenly emerge out of nowhere, as it often did. What I gradually discovered, at an emotional rather than a purely intellectual level, was that it is futile to look for happy endings or miracle painkillers. But far from being depressing, that realisation brought a feeling of release, even joy. It is hard to express how profoundly satisfying it is to be able to say 'I can live with this', rather than rushing around trying desperately to find ways of escaping. Up to a point I had already understood this but, with Richard's help, ACT allowed me to feel it, to incorporate it at the deepest level and therefore live it. Since ending our sessions, I have noticed that I deal with potentially threatening, destabilising thoughts and feelings differently: acknowledging them, not judging them or fighting with them, and carrying on with my 'valued action', the course I know to be right. We may not be able to exorcise our ghosts, but we can befriend them - and if we do, they lose their power to do us harm.
