Mr Richard Barnardo

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS20-01174

Location: London

I am a registered counsellor with both the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Counselling Society (NCS). My professional experience working within statutory social care settings for over 14 years taught me that public services often fail people. Services often struggled to build relationships with those wanting help or to give the time that you'd need to be heard and understood. I chose to specialise in Counselling to change this and to offer you the care and attention that supports meaningful change.

Having been adopted into the family that founded the famous children’s charity, Barnardo’s, I learnt the importance of caring and supportive relationships. This has shaped who I am and how I practice. My approach is integrative — which is another way of saying I’m qualified to practice a range of therapeutic approaches (such as Person-centred, Psychodynamic & CBT). I offer both short-term counselling and longer-term exploratory therapy.
