Myke Richardson-Hughes


About me

Hi my name is Myke and I am an Integrative Therapist and Clinical Supervisor, 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 Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Expressive Therapies, Compassion Focused Therapy and Person Centred theories when working with clients.

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

I 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.

In a nutshell, the support of a therapist 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.
