Richard holds a diploma in Human Givens therapy and is a registered member of the Human Givens Institute. He has a great deal of experience working with people in a wide range of roles; as a therapist, a teacher, a senior police officer and personally developing and applying many of these ideas as a parent within his own family.
During his thirty years as a police officer he gained considerable insight into leadership, command and partnership working, as well as seeing, at first hand, the impact poor relationships have upon families and society generally. His own family has had the challenge of a severely autistic daughter with the significant effect this had upon her two younger brothers as well as Richard and his wife. Shelves full of self-help, parenting, and psychology books, and the inability of public services to provide really effective ideas for getting to the root causes of poor family life, led him on a quest to discover better ideas. He was then introduced to the Human Givens approach to well-being and became inspired to make good use of this new found knowledge, believing that everyone could benefit from understanding this explanation of human nature.
He provides therapeutic help for individuals wishing to overcome depression, anger problems, anxiety, post traumatic stress and relationship difficulties. He also works with groups of people, helping schools, parents, teachers and other organisations to move towards a wellbeing centred approach to their work.
He is a founder of the Flourishing Together Programme which is being used within schools in the Swindon area.
He holds an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) disclosure and works with people of any age.
