“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”Carl Rogers

Richard Oliver Durrant

Richard is a qualified counsellor and works as a member of the BACP.  He carried out his training over five years at West Cheshire College in the North West of England. 

Integrative counselling allows him to draw on three different strands of counselling theory, teamed with the ethical code he is bound by under the BACP, this means he is always working with the client's best interests at heart. 

He has worked with a wide range of clients suffering from an equally wide range of issues and whereby he understands that every person's experiences are different, he is able to draw on his knowledge to help establish a close empathic understanding.

He is an open, honest, trustworthy counsellor able to create a safe and confidential place for the client to open up and work toward helping themselves. 


The therapeutic relationship is a relationship like no other.  It is based on trust and builds through empathic understanding, congruence, honesty and openness.  One to one counselling will provide you with a relationship unlike any you may have had before.  If you find the right counsellor the connection will be invaluable in you becoming who you truly are and in you finding and connecting with inner peace.

I offer individual counselling in my therapy rooms either in Mold, North Wales or in Chester.  I also offer counselling in my therapy garden (depending on the weather).


With the rush of modern living it can sometimes be hard to find time to make it to a counselling session in person, it can also be a daunting thought, to sit in front of a stranger and tell them your inner most secrets. 

This is why I also offer telephone counselling either as a full alternative or as a way to build up to face to face therapy.


Losing a pet can be very traumatic, just as traumatic or sometimes even more than losing a human family member.  I feel very strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to grieve properly and where pets are concerned, there should be no expectation or judgement.  This is one of the reasons that I specialise in pet bereavement counselling
