About me

Hi, my name is Paul, and I am a fully registered member of the BACP and on the accredited register of counsellors and psychotherapists compiled by the BACP.  I am an integrative counsellor with my own private practice, and I also work full time for Optima and Helpeap services as such any clients requesting my services* I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, and person-centered theories when working with clients.
I am also now able to offer counselling supervision either online or face to face at competitive rates and timings to suit you.

I also have knowledge and further training in other theoretical modalities which can be drawn upon and utilised within our counselling work to suit your individual needs.

Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness and Logotherapy.

I provide a broad range of services to clients including one to one therapy, and relationship issues such as communication problems, conflict, affairs, divorce and separation,I also work with individuals and people who may be suffering with anxiety, stress, depression, grief, trauma, break up of a relationship, suicide and self harm.

I offer open ended therapy, which means you can see me short term or long term, based on your individual needs.

In a nutshell, the support of a Counsellor 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,  – the list is endless and complex because people themselves are complex and life can throw a multitude of difficulties our way.

*I am unable to accept private clients from these companies until six months has elapsed, please be aware.
