Talking therapies


If you are stuck with a personal issue or need a space to talk through a problem, we can offer you counselling as a way to better manage your issue, find a way forward or identify a solution that works for you. We provide a sensitive yet proactive and change-focused, problem-focused and solution-focused approach to therapy. Rick has over 25 years of experience having worked with around 3,000 clients from a wide range of backgrounds and covering a multitude of issues and problems.

We can help you identify ways to improve and develop, whether this is home or work-focused.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, we can offer mentoring to support and enhance your professional development. Rick can tailor a programme to fit your background, resources and profession. 


We can offer a supervisory sounding-board to give you a professional space to discuss, work-through and think-about work challenges and job-related issues. This is particularly invaluable for those in the caring and helping professions.
