About Richard Middleton

I am a highly experienced UKCP-registered Individual, Couples and Family and Systemic Psychotherapist. I have been practising for 35 years, primarily within the NHS, in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Adult Mental Health Services, as well as specialist services for eating disorders, and adoption and fostering services. I have also provided teaching and clinical supervision to psychotherapists and trainees. I have an MSc in Family Therapy Practice, Teaching and Research and additional Advanced Training qualification in Clinical Supervision.

I am experienced in working with individuals, couples and families.

Some of the issues I can help with include:

My broad range of experience working within clinical settings enables me to adapt my therapeutic approach to what fits with each family, couple or individual, and could include Solution-focused ideas, CBT, Transgenerational approaches, Attachment-based theories or Narrative ideas, all underpinned by a systemic framework.

Family and systemic psychotherapy – also known as family therapy – can help those in close relationships to better understand and support each other. It enables family members to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on family strengths, and work together to make useful changes in their relationships and their lives.

It can also help individuals understand their present problems in light of their relationships with others and their experiences growing up in their family of origin.
