Richard Cupid - Founder of Emotional Nourishment
Having worked with individuals and groups since 2014, I understand how difficult it can be to ask for help and go through with overcoming pain and suffering.
"Overcoming the pain we hold deep inside, gives us all the freedom to be who we want to be."
I have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts and because of this I have dedicated myself to understanding what impacts our wellbeing. This has taken me on a journey looking into aspects of food and mood, physical movement, mediation, environments and relationships.
This has become the core of the counselling and therapy I offer. Looking at multiple aspects of the self and the ideas or behaviours we have, help us find the person we are. We are always changing and developing, we are never set at one point. Therapy offers you the chance to grow in the ways you may not have thought possible.
Using techniques that work for you
I believe that everyone is unique and need different approaches to find what they need in therapy. I continue to develop my skills and approaches to help and offer a beneficial experience allowing anyone to develop during and beyond every session, because of this we can always learn from each other, building on our experience to find your nourishment from emotional pain.
