Richard Lyon DCH.
Who am I: I'm an experienced therapist with over 18 years experience; I specialise in the following issues:- anger, anxiety, confidence, depression, past life therapy, stop smoking and weight management.
Where I am: I deliver my therapies from a wonderful space in Stepps just outside Glasgow, I also offer home visits for those who are unable to get to me, but these session depending on where they are incur an additional cost to cover travel.
The way I work: every session is tailored around you personally and is focused on bringing new positive and practical solutions to your issues.More often than not, right from the first session, I like to approach your situation by not just looking at your presenting issue, but importantly look at the causes and what are the factors that are feeding into it, thereby prolonging your situation and causing your continued distress. I will begin by using relaxation methods, together with a wide range of other techniques and therapies.
At each session we will work together to set some achievable and realistic goals starting with small manageable steps and continuing at a pace which suits you. From there on we activate your natural resources to help you to feel better and take back control of your life. At each session I will check out what effects the treatment is having for you and, if and when necessary, work through any difficulties.
How long it takes: Everyone’s situation is different, but I aim to take as few sessions as possible. Often people need no more than six sessions to make significant progress and lasting improvements.
Therapies I offer include:
- Theta Healing
- Auricular Acupuncture
- Clinical Hypnotherapy
- Emotional Freedom Technique
- Guided Relaxation
Going to see Richard was both the bravest and best thing I have ever done. I finally plucked up the courage to call Richard 6 weeks after the break up of a long-term relationship during which time I had been struggling with anxiety, panic, frustration and most of all hurt and sadness, not understanding and not coping. Every week I saw him, I took a major step forward. Within 2 days of calling him, I had stopped shaking, stopped losing weight, started smiling and for the first time, believing that things wouldn't always be like this. The next week, I realised all the good things I had in my life and I started to feel comfortable in my own self and my home again, able to relax for the first time in months. Years even. 1 week later I realised - as did many others - just how confident I had become again, how happy I was becoming, more than I've been for a long time. This continued every week for a couple of months, where I felt happier, stronger and so able to look forward, not back. I was really apprehensive about calling Richard, but if anyone ever experiences any of the feelings I have outlined above, I know he will help them. I was at my lowest point in my life when I met him and now, only a couple of months later, I am at my happiest point for years and whilst there are a number of factors that have helped along the way, fundamentally, Richard made it all happen for me and I hope he feels the reward he should for doing so and my gratitude for not only changing my life at the time I needed it most, but for the empathetic, supportive and most of all comfortable way he helped me rebuild myself and my life to where I feel I am now, not only strong in the moment, but knowing I could never find myself in that dark place I was the day I called him.
Thanks Richard. From my heart, I never believed I could find myself again the way you helped me do and would never have believed I would feel the way I do now that first day I called you, so soon and so painlessly - all thanks to you. Good luck in all you do going forward and if I need you, I'll be in touch, don't worry.
