Gay couples have chosen to work with Dean for a number of specific reasons, some of which include:
- Dean is a fully qualified & experienced couple relationship counsellor.
- Dean is an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (note that in the UK therapists are not licensed to practice, so anyone can set themselves up as a therapist. The BACP’s Accreditation scheme is a method to verify a counsellor/psychotherapist’s substantial training and experience).
- Dean’s expertise as a couple counsellor includes the psychology & pathology of LGBT couples.
- Feedback from past lesbian couple clients included that they chose to work with Dean, as a gay male couple counsellor, as he was a ‘safe’ therapist and non-threatening.
- Feedback from past gay male couples included that they found identifying with Dean be a comforting/containing thought – allowing them to discuss their relationship in a supportive environment during tough therapeutic-process times.
- Other couples (and LGBT individuals) have sought out Dean Richardson specifically by reputation and because of his speciality and knowledge of the psychological behaviour of gay & lesbian couple relationships.
- Dean’s therapeutic core model is a combination of systemic/psychodynamic approach to couple counselling, adding helpful methods from CBTCognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy that is focussed on helping a person change the ways they think, how they feel, and their behaviour, in a stepped process.
