Sometimes, after you’ve experienced a traumatic event, the memories (both cognitive and emotional) can come back to haunt you, disturb your sleep, make your life a struggle to manage.

Meeting with Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred), whether soon after or years after the traumatic event, can help you put the experience to rest once and for all.

Trauma including (but not limited to) rape (both male and female), car accident, terrorism, burglary, suicide (someone else, or an attempt on your own life) and so on.

Trauma Counselling Services Summary

Trauma Co-pilot Counselling

When suffering from the post-effects of trauma, no-one wants to travel that route alone.

Dean Richardson will be your co-pilot counsellor.

Working together, you and Dean will (carefully, and going at your pace) revisit the trauma, working through it so that you are no longer so traumatised.

Types of Trauma

There are all sorts of life events that could be considered as trauma: rape, verbal abuse, car/motorcycle accident, being ked, witnessing a traumatic event (eg a bomb blast, seeing someone attacked) and so on.

It’s important that you recognise you’ll be helped to work through things at your speed and only as much as you wish to work at. This is why I call this: co-pilot counselling.

Co-Pilot Counselling

Co-pilot counselling means that you work co-operatively with Counsellor Dean Richardson.

This form of counselling is not done to you (like one thinks of a GP: tell your symptoms and he cures you).

Instead, your “cure” lies within you, and both you and Dean co-pilot the therapy together.

Trustworthy Therapy

Only when you are ready should you contact Dean Richardson to discuss trauma counselling.

No-one can send you to Dean, no-one can tell you “you have to get counselling”.

Only when you decide you want to be a co-pilot on this traumatic journey will you be ready… and not before!

NB: co-pilot counselling is Dean’s layman’s term that describes his approach to counselling; involving the client and the counsellor in as equal partnership as the trauma allows. Dean’s theoretical framework for counselling is psychodynamic and cognitive/behavioural, systemic/psychodynamic (couples) and Foulksian/psychdynamic (group).

About Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred)

You could choose any counsellor.

But… when you consider that this is probably the most personal and the most vulnerable that you're going to be with someone, you'd choose someone you'd trust, who demonstrated adept professional skills, who spoke plain English (who's happy to use as much swearing/plain language as you use yourself), and who works in partnership with his clients (he doesn't sit in silence, or just says "Hmm" for 50 minutes)

…then you'd choose to meet with Dean Richardson.

Seems a simple choice, really.

NOTICE: Dean is not available from Friday 15th December to Wednesday 3rd January (inclusive).

Times in red are the most popular, and usually the first to go.

Appointments are weekly.

Our work lasts for as long (or as brief) as we both think it's helpful. No more, no less.

Your choice of weekly day/time remains for as long as we need.

You pay for sessions weekly (cash, cheque [made out to Dean Richardson], credit card, debit card).

To end counselling: it's helpful to bring up thoughts about ending rather than saying one day: "I'm ending today". Sometimes the desire to end can be a mask for something else: being afraid, unable to be angry, acting out abandonment etc. We'll talk it through to plan our ending.
