‘Our need to connect is what makes us human’ – Patricia DeYoung


Hello – my name is Richard Hughes and I’m a trainee counsellor.

I’m currently working towards an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling (UKCP) at the Metanoia Institute which is accredited by Middlesex University.

I’m in my third year of this four year training course, seeing clients within an NHS placement.

I work with a wide range of issues and with people from all walks of life. I’m particularly interested in relationship issues, family issues, trauma, work/life balance and LGBT issues.

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.

I carry full professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

I’m registered with the following professional organisations: UK Council for Psychotherapy.

I accept and follow the principles set out in the Code of Ethics and Conduct of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
