Richard has an exceptional ability to provide insightful feedback and practical advice on how to first understand, and then overcome mental health issues. My course of sessions with him dramatically improved my sense of well being and quality of life following an episode of health anxiety. I would recommend him in a heartbeat

Rich was a wonderful Therapist and helped immensely with the issues I was struggling with. Very practical and straightforward with his insight and advice.

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.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Rich Doherty. The sessions I had gave me a greater understanding of myself and equipped me to better deal with some challenging family dynamics.

I have been seeing Rich for a while now. He is excellent: empathetic, excellent theoretical knowledge, and looks for creative solutions. Always seeking to improve the service he provides. Could not speak more highly of 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.

Richard has helped me to deal with some issues I have been having recently surrounding anxiety. He is very easy to talk to and since being treated by him I have felt a marked fall in my levels of anxiety.
