About Richard Green
If you are facing difficulties on life’s complex journey, my goal is to support you, to help you to find ways to move forward, creating opportunities for real change.
I am a mindfullness based therapist, working towards a mind, full of awareness. Helping you to become more self-aware of your physical, emotional and mental states. As your understanding of ‘who you are’ develops, you become more able to ‘see’ yourself and others with honesty and compassion, which is central to genuine life change.
We all experience difficult times, pain and distress, it is part of the human condition. On top of this, modern life is generally high speed and stressful. The most natural response to life’s traumas is ‘fight or flight’. We either prepare to ‘fight’ (stress, tension, anxiety, isolation etc.) or run to distraction (food, drugs, work, alcohol, self harm, etc.). When the roots of trauma are not dealt with, these ‘response mechanisms’ turn into habitual patterns (addictions), which impacts upon our day to day lives, and upon our relationships with others.
Once you start to understand your mind, and your patterns of re-action, you create more space and opportunities to free yourself from mental states that limit your ability to be your true self.
It is a journey of self discovery. Sometimes we need an ‘other’ to share that journey and to witness the process. It would be a great honour to join you on the next step of your journey.
I work from a basis of transparency, honesty and integrity. I also draw upon a number of other teachings, including: person centered, transpersonal psychology, buddhist psychotherapy and life coaching skills.
