MRH Wellbeing | Counselling & Clinical Supervision

About me

Hi my name is Myke and I am an Integrative Therapist and Clinical Supervisor my company is called MRH Wellbeing, I have experience of working with looked after children and young people aged 6 to 20, and as a Substance and Alcohol Misuse Counsellor in a residential treatment centre.

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Expressive Therapies, Compassion Focused Therapy and Person Centred theories when working with clients.

The team and I also have knowledge and further training in other theoretical modalities such as Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Art Therapy which can be drawn upon and utilised within our counselling work to suit your individual needs.

We can 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.

We offer open ended therapy, which means you can see me or a member of my team, 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.

We provide counselling services to individuals, schools, workplace and medical practitioners.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
