Children and Young People have many issues which they cannot always express and understand their feelings, as adults sometimes can. Issues can range from parents splitting up, school problems, exam stress and pressure, friendship issues, witnessing domestic abuse or sexual abuse. The lists can be endless. My job is to creatively work with the child or young person to explore what their issues are and help build up self esteem and track their goals in therapy in creative ways.

I have a particular interest in trauma; PTSD and C-PTSD, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. In addition to my psychotherapy training, I have specialist trauma modality training in CRM; SE; ISP and IFS. I am a trainee member of UKCP.

I understand that looking for a counsellor can feel overwhelming especially at a time when you might be experiencing emotional pain, overloaded or stuck. This is why it's important to find someone with whom you feel connected, who will offer you a safe space in which to explore the events or issues which are causing you difficulties. I work with people who have experienced abuse or relationship difficulties, people who are struggling to find their own worth or feel directionless and people who feel anxious or depressed. Reaching out for support without fear of judgement can be an important step towards feeling empowered to grow.

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 recognise that life is a journey that can sometimes be a struggle. Life in this modern world is often chaotic, stressful and moves at such a fast pace, yet our reptilian brains are still designed to deal with cave man threats. This can lead to our bodies being flooded with fight, flight or freeze responses. In time these can build and lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and low level trauma if not dealt with correctly. Having the support to help you through is not always easy to find.

I can help you, if you feel anxious, empty or sad; if you have relationship issues with parents or partners, never feel really heard, are a 'people pleaser' or say 'yes' even when you are overwhelmed. If this is you, then we can work together to help you feel better in yourself and in your relationships, feel less stressed and more able to cope. Through looking at our past we can often discover where some of these things come from, you can start to understand your feelings, make sense of your responses and manage the emotions that they bring. You can start to live a more positive and fulfilling life with better relationships.

This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a counsellor that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Cheltenham or for Cheltenham sexual abuse counselling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse counsellors, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse therapists. Counsellors can help with child abuse in Cheltenham and sexual violence in Cheltenham. An Cheltenham counsellor can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
