I aim to provide a safe space for individuals, couples, and young people where anxieties can be talked through, free from any sense of judgement. Every effort will be made to establish a trusting relationship with you. I will seek to understand your situation and help you to explore the way you feel about yourself and your concerns as well as your hopes and desires. The counselling relationship can help you to become aware of patterns in behaviour that have developed in your life and reveal how those past experiences may still affect you now. Working this through in therapy can give you greater choice in the way you live.

What brings someone to therapy is always a unique set of circumstances that are variable and deeply personal to you. Perhaps anxiety is ruling your life or relationships are strained, together we will explore how this manifests and build strategies to manage what you are struggling with. At the heart of what I offer is a space where you feel seen and heard, where we explore together what is challenging and what might be realised within your struggle as potential and possibility. It is important that you know our work is personalised to you and that the therapy I offer is a collaboration between us.

Let me start by saying I’ve been to see a psychologist; why mention this? Two reasons: firstly, people often ask me this, so I’ll be up front about it. Secondly – maybe why people ask – having been “on the other side of the room”, I have the experience of how hard opening up can be, and how difficult it is to think about “life”. This experience has meant that back on the psych side of the room, I take a genuinely careful and non-judgmental approach to sessions. I begin by focusing on helping people feel comfortable; paradoxically perhaps, this means we are able to get to work on things quite quickly, but importantly, never rushing.

Clinical Psychologists are unique to other type of therapists as we are trained to a high standard in more than one therapeutic approach. This allows me to provide you with an individualised, specialist care plan, using one or more therapeutic approach to suit your needs. As a clinical psychologist I am trained in the use of psychological formulation; together we will consider your past experiences, current difficulties and your strengths in order to provide a thorough understanding of what has lead you to seek support.

Talking through your issues can feel like a weight has been lifted. I have a wide range of experience and can help you recognise and manage any past and/or present difficulties you may be facing and guide you towards making the changes you wish to make which may benefit every aspect of your life.

Many of us have the feeling that something is wrong but are not sure what it is or we know our life could be better. This can be because we are out of touch with our true self. One reason for this is that we learn to defend ourselves from the world at a very young age. Those defences become ingrained and we think they are part of our personality. We may often dismiss our defences as ‘that’s just me.’ For some people who have had trauma, those defences can become debilitating in the form of an addiction or a panic disorder. Working through our issues can help our defences to 'stand down' as we become more comfortable in our own skin.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, maybe you can hire...me? I'm Rich, a counsellor based in the Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole area, working face to face, online and outdoors, with expertise in men's mental health issues. It’s no secret men don’t talk about their mental health easily. The idea of talking to a stranger about feelings and stuff? Yeah whatever mate, i'm fine. But, you're not fine though, are you?

Are you telling people you are 'fine' even though you know you are not? Maybe you are going through a bereavement, a life transition, a difficult period of your life and need some emotional support? Maybe you have already experienced difficulties in your life and are struggling with the way you feel on the other side of it. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem or depression?

Finding the therapist that is right for you may feel a challenge, especially at a time when you may be feeling vulnerable or uncertain, perhaps facing a crisis point. This is not unusual, whether you have undertaken therapy in the past or whether this is the first time you have sought therapy. Sometimes we need help to overcome conflicts and blocks in ourselves and in our relationships that are confusing and difficult to face. I understand that you are a unique and complex individual, with many facets and aspects of who you are, how you experience yourself, and how you have had to adapt as you confront life's struggles.

Do you feel the need to talk, share, collaborate together with someone to find a way forward or just make sense of some challenges or tangles in your life right now? If yes, counselling might be the right step for you. Counselling is a journey you embark on, a journey of self-exploration, exploration of situations, patterns, relationships or any other aspect in your life that might be challenging. Taking that journey with a counsellor you feel comfortable with is equally important. As a counsellor, my aim is to create a safe and non-judgemental space where you feel free to start that journey.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Bournemouth are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Bournemouth then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Bournemouth, or Child Psychologists in Bournemouth.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Bournemouth psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Bournemouth specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
