Hello, I’m Richard – welcome to Actualise Counselling.

I’m an empathic, compassionate, and supportive therapist with over a decade’s experience helping women and men overcome issues related to depression, anxiety, abuse, interpersonal trauma, and relationship problems.  We all need to be seen, heard, and understood, and my aim as a therapist is to offer a space where you can express yourself freely.  As your counsellor, I’ll help you bring about positive change and live a more rewarding and satisfying life, free of the things that have hindered and held you back.

If you’re new to counselling or thinking of resuming therapy after a break, I’ll be glad to hear from you.

You’ll find a wide range of information, resources, and articles on this site, including:

I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for.  Of course, the next step is for us to have an informal talk so we can get things started.

When you’re ready, you can either:

  • Call me on 07565 353389 for an informal conversation about how we can work together
  • Complete the contact form
  • Email me and I can get us booked in for your first appointment.

It’s as easy as that.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you.

Take care until then….
