Neill Hughes


About Me

I am an Accredited and registered Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioral Therapist under the BACP British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy professions (reg no. 267042 ). I have over 4 year experience of working in private practice and public clinics working with a wide range of diagnosed disorders and difficult life experiences.
Whilst I have worked with a number of disorder ranging from bereavement to depression, one of my main focus areas is working with anxiety and anxious conditions such as emotional dysregulation , I also have experience working with high functioning Autism (ASC). My background is working with trauma, attachment disorders and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), I have also supported many people with low mood and depression and helping them find their intrinsic motivation in life and relationships.
I work in a person-centred way, helping the client to formulate goals & understand how to work through their difficulties together. I believe the relationship is paramount in all therapy sessions and you can expect a safe, professional and non-judgmental environment.

I hold a first class degree in BA Hons in Person-Centred counselling and psychotherapy, (Middlesex University) and went onto receive an A in both my certificate and Diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (accredited through the University of the West of Scotland UWS). I have completed training in Motivational Interviewing at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.
Due to my background in working with trauma I completed training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills (DBT) and training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (TF-CBT) throught the Anna Frued Center.
Most recently I completed the training in Mentalization Based Therapy for families (MBT-F)(Anna Frued centre) and some basic training in Schema Therapy (Schema Therapy Wales).
It can be a very difficult decision for some clients to seek support but often this can be life changing and I look forward to supporting on this journey.
