Richard Murray


About Me

It can be really tough to actually talk about what is going on for you. Sometimes we feel shame or fear at the prospect of sharing these feelings. Sometimes there just aren't words for those feelings. I offer a space in which whatever you wish to talk about is fine. I am not easily shocked!

Our time spent together will involve creating a safe space in which you can explore whatever it is that you want or need. I like to hold a space where I embrace that everybody is unique and that nobody is "perfect." I also understand the drive to achieve that perfection and how difficult it can be balancing the two.
I offer both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy to support you in whichever way you need. I'm open to exploring with you the ways in which we can work together.

My sessions have been welcoming, comfortable and easy. I was nervous for my first session but the dynamic made me feel at ease quickly. It is my impression that even the little notes I jot down throughout the week of 'things to talk about' are reflected upon. Our discussions are taken on board and I feel the things I find important to me are recognised and valued. I am enjoying my journey thus far which is not what I expected. I am confident Richard's therapy style and the session options have allowed for this.

Talking to Richard has been easy from the get-go. He's personable & calming, and I'm really enjoying his style of therapy; even if the topics are heavy, I feel reassured and supported.

I’ve not had him very long but I’m already very comfortable and I feel like he is a great fit and will help me tremendously!

Richard's an excellent listener and he really makes time for the client. He really gets to what the client wants to get to and isn't afraid to make the most of the session and really give the gift of his time. It feels more like talking to a very wise friend than a "therapist" per se, which I suppose in a way is probably what very good therapy is supposed to feel like!
