My name is Richard Demwell and I am a registered and Accredited counsellor and psychotherapist based in Southwark.

I understand that deciding to seek therapy can be a daunting prospect. Yet therapy can also be an immensely rewarding and beneficial experience to help you understand your difficulties and facilitate change. Like many, you may not be sure what sort of support you need. If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your concerns.

My work is with adults of all ages, offering short-term counselling and longer term, open-ended psychotherapy. I have many years of experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in different organisational settings. These include working for several years within an NHS psychotherapy department, a charity setting and within a university student counselling service. More recently I have worked as a counsellor with older adults in a charity, gaining considerable experience of working with older people transitioning into retirement and issues concerned with aging. I am also experienced in providing clinical assessments for therapy.

I am experienced in working with:

Destructive patterns of behaviour
Relationship problems
Feelings of emptiness
Difficulties at work or studying
Major life transitions and sudden change
Health problems including medically unexplained symptoms
Loss and bereavement

Telephone Counselling: In some circumstances I may be able to offer sessions by phone, dependent on circumstances.

I have extensive experience of working with people who feel 'stuck', isolated and those having difficulty feeling pleasure in some areas of their life - especially within their relationships.

My consulting room offers a comfortable, confidential and secure space for you to explore your concerns and consider your options. It is easily accessible within the area of London Bridge, Borough and Elephant and Castle within Southwark.
