Hello from me, Richard Mills
From 1991 to 2001 I spent a long time training in counselling, co-counselling and psychotherapy, going to all sorts of groups and courses, getting my own therapy, and working as a therapist in both the NHS and in charities.
Since 2001 I have been in private practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist, seeing individuals who come to see me for all sorts of reasons: it’s an infinitely interesting and fruitful job, the kind that if I won the lottery, I’d still want to do it.
In 2011, I set up Confidence Tracks to embrace the courses in confidence-building and co-counselling that I have now been running for several years.
Here’s the formal bit about me:
BA, PGDIM, BSc, LGSMD, BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist
At some point I will write some more here about what all the above really means – it’s not just a bunch of letters, after all. For the moment, if you want to check me out a bit more, have a look at my therapy website, where I get a bit more personal:
Sometimes I deliver my courses with the help of assistant trainers. With great pleasure, I introduce to you:
Joanna Klopotek, BA
Joanna has been is a professional Health Trainer, a qualified yoga instructor, and is experienced in confidence and assertiveness training, co-counselling training, The Work of Byron Katie and other interpersonal group work. She also works as a freelance interpreter in health, legal and statutory settings. She brings her own unique qualities to the course experience and helps me avoid thinking the I am the sole purveyor of ‘The Truth’.
