Hello – I’m Richard Hughes

I’m a psychotherapist and counsellor in training. I’m currently able to offer low-cost psychotherapy and counselling in central Walthamstow which is on the Victoria line – 17 mins from Oxford Circus or on the overground from Liverpool St Station.

I’m also on a placement in Lambeth NHS – where I’ve practiced for 2 years. Previously to that, I completed a year-long placement at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service in Ealing.

I’m in my final year of a 4-Year MSc/Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling at the Metanoia Institute which is validated by Middlesex University.

I’m a student member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and UKAPI (United Kingdom Association for Psychotherapy Integration).

I also have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (NCFE).

I work with a wide range of issues and with people from all walks of life. I have a particular interest in working with LGBT and BAME communities.

Issues I work with include: Anxiety, depression, stress, loss, trauma, bereavement, work/life balance, panic attacks, ruminating/catastrophizing thoughts, life/career changes, self-confidence, being relationship ready/relationship issues/break-ups and coping mechanisms.

As a student member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy – www.psychotherapy.org.uk – I accept and follow the principles set out in their Code of Ethics and Conduct.

The UKCP is the leading body for the education, training and accreditation of psychotherapists – and as an organisation, requires annual renewal and continual professional development.

I carry full professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

I am registered on the public register of data controllers.

I’ve worked in the commercial and creative sector for over 20 years and continue to do so. I’m committed to creative diversity and mental health awareness within this profession.
