Specialty and areas of interest:
Duncan is passionate about giving people the tools to be freed from their past, and continues to advance his skills to help people overcome trauma.
He has found that while it is true that you cannot change the past, you can stop the impact the past continues to have on you. By using The Richards Trauma Process, Duncan enables people to stop the negative impact of the past in a safe, time effective manner, without having to relive the trauma.
Duncan is passionate about ensuring people have access to quality counselling, therapy and self-empowerment in a healthy and effective manner. Working with people from various backgrounds and childhood experiences has given Duncan a breadth of experience and understanding of how to give people a new lease on life.
Having worked with a lady aged in her 40s for 18 months who had been drinking alcohol since the age of 14, been through numerous rehabs and struggled in relationships, Duncan did The Richards Trauma Process with her and saw life-changing results. She has now been 13 months alcohol free for the first time since she was 14. Helping her to understand that the alcohol was a way of covering the pain from previous abuse, once the abuse was dealt with her need for alcohol was no longer there.
People use lots of different substances or activities in an attempt to deal with their pain. By showing people how to healthily deal with the past, they are given the tools to stop the negative impact this continues to have on them. Let me help you find freedom and release from your past.
And that’s it. Thank you!
