My Psychotherapy Career: Making a meaningful career change

Exploring yourself through psychotherapy can lead you to transform your life.  

In this episode Helen Willingham, our head of content and engagement, talks to UKCP psychotherapist Richard Hughes.

After dedicating 25 years to the television industry and establishing his own production company, Richard experienced an existential crisis that prompted him to seek psychotherapy. This experience inspired him to seek a career change.

‘But doing therapy I just found that I could tap into a vulnerability that I wasn’t really familiar with. It just allowed me to be deeply relational with someone and I really loved it. And I thought why do I just have this for one hour a week, this could be bigger, this could be my life.’
