Myke Richardson-Hughes Integrative Therapist & Clinical Supervisor BSc (Hons)
Hi my name is Myke and I am an integrative therapist with my own private practice (MRH Wellbeing), I currently work as a Therapist Manager, managing a team of therapists working with looked after children and young people aged 6 to 20 and previously I worked as a Substance and Alcohol Misuse Counsellor in a residential treatment centre. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic and Person Centred theories when working with clients.
I also have knowledge and further training in other theoretical modalities which can be drawn upon and utilised within our counselling work to suit your individual needs.
Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness and Logotherapy.
I provide a broad range of services to clients including Counselling Adolescents, one to one therapy, couples counselling, same sex relationships, transgender and LGBT issues.
I have worked and have experience with relationship issues such as communication problems, conflict, affairs, divorce and separation, I have also worked with individuals who are in addiction recovery and also people who may be suffering with anxiety, stress, depression, grief, trauma, break up of a relationship, suicide and self harm.
I offer open ended therapy, which means you can see me short term or long term, based on your individual needs.
In a nutshell, the support of a Counsellor can help find ways to accept and make peace with the things we feel we can’t change, and make positive changes where we can. We can increase awareness that we have choices in life and deal with our troubles when they are taking over and affecting our lives in a negative way and this could be because of unresolved issues concerning grief, an inability to let go of the past, feeling overwhelmed with relationship problems, divorce, drug or alcohol dependency – the list is endless and complex because people themselves are complex and life can throw a multitude of difficulties our way.
I provide counselling services to individuals, schools, workplace and medical practitioners.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
