C, 51, Leicester:
It has been really refreshing to work with Richard. He listens carefully and well, and is very enthusiastic about opportunities for personal growth. I like to bring allsorts of things to counselling sessions – pictures, song lyrics, quotes from books – and Richard has willingly engaged with them all, demonstrating his strong commitment to a person centred approach. I feel confident that I can communicate honestly during counselling sessions and this has enabled me to reflect thoroughly on the new approaches that I have tried as a result of our work. I have been able to firm up my boundaries, which has improved a number of relationships, and I am feeling more comfortable in my own skin.
A, 31, Loughborough:
When I first started therapy with Richard, I was in a very bad place emotionally as I had been going through a hard time with my long term partner at the time. I had lost my confidence and self belief and with Richards help over the months, I was able to overcome this and become more positive and regain my confidence in being myself again. I cannot thank Richard enough for all that he’s helped me through over the last couple of years.
H, 34, Loughborough:
When I went to Richard, I was in a very bad place with regards to many aspects of my life….personally and professionally. With Richard’s help over the last few months,I have gradually started to turn things round and that is down to Richard lending his ear, offering a shoulder and offering extremely professional and excellent help. Without this, I wouldn’t be where I am now.
