Hi, I'm Rich. I am a counsellor & creative therapist. This means I work with talking therapy alone or a blend of talking & creative therapies. My aim is to provide a service that is effective, simple to access & encourages personal growth & healing. I work in a very open way; my intention is to ultimately give you the tools to better understand and deal with your issues, thoughts & feelings. A creative approach offers different ways of expression beyond talking. It can work with anything creative, you don't even need to be "arty" or have any skills! It's less about making a finished piece & more about the journey of creation.
I believe we are all unique & therefore my focus is always on the best approach to support each individual's needs. I prefer to work creatively ‘in the moment’ rather than to a pre-determined analysis. I offer 1 hour individual sessions & creative therapy groups to young people (16+) & adults from a safe, comfortable, relaxed space in central Cheltenham.
I am experienced in supporting clients through a wide range of issues & welcome people from all walks of life. I am easy to talk to & people describe me as open minded, non-judgemental, compassionate & curious. Thanks for reading my profile, please see my website for more detailed information or contact me with any questions you may have. Intro session £25.

Rich Hayden's Groups

Creative Therapy Group

I am running small therapy groups (4-5 people max) using creative arts as a medium to individually explore and experiment. These groups are suitable for anyone interested in creative therapies. Anything that is considered creative expression can be used, from paint to poetry, clay to collage and beyond! I am keeping the groups small so that I have time to spend with each individual as well as time to hold group process as a whole. Please see my website or contact me for more details.
