Welcome to Richard Bamford Therapy

I imagine you’ve arrived here as you may be looking for someone to talk to. Perhaps you’re experiencing some distress or navigating a specific struggle and are hoping to find some clarity in what’s going on for you.

We all experience difficulties occasionally and life can be challenging sometimes. We can be affected by our past as well as feeling worried for our future. Such confusion can leave us feeling overwhelmed and uncertain; lost, stuck or unsettled.

Alternatively, you may want to explore and understand who you really are; harvest awareness and personal growth. A deeper understanding can lead to a change in how you view yourself, your life and your relationships.

Finding a therapist that is right for you is key. There are many different theoretical approaches and each have their own ideas around psychological difficulties and human development. Of the varying modalities, I’ve had training in: Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Person-Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling, and Solution-Focussed Therapy.

I’ve found that combining aspects of different approaches provides the most effective way of building a healthy relationship. Research suggests that the therapeutic relationship is the most important feature for a successful outcome during counselling or therapy. Enhancing that relationship can help you to feel safe, accepted and respected while also challenging you in a positive and constructive way.

I am accessible to many in East Sussex and Kent; including Rotherfield, Uckfield, Royal Tunbridge Wells, East Grinstead, and Crawley.

About me

For as long as I can remember, human emotional responses and thought processes have fascinated and sometimes confused me…

How I work

It is my belief and experience that lasting changes are founded on the relationship in the room between the client and therapist.

Get in touch

If we are able to work together, my hope is that what will become clear is that we don’t have to face any issue alone and that it is normal and healthy to seek support.
