Although he has trained in a wide variety of psychotherapeutic models it is his ability to blend Gestalt methodology, Psychodynamic thinking, CBT, Transactional Analysis and EMDR into his practice that allows him to work in a truly inclusive and integrative way. He is currently working in private practice.

Richard is a compassionate, yet challenging, practitioner who demonstrates a high degree of insight, empathy and humour in his role as an educator which allows him to deliver instructional material in a practical, accessible and thought provoking way. He was once described as the "Jeremy Paxman" of psychotherapists. (He considers this a compliment.)
