Paul has been involved with psychotherapy for nearly 25 years. His first training was in humanistic psychotherapy in the early 90’s in London. He then did a psychodynamic counselling training in Vancouver. His most significant training has been in Transactional Analysis which he did in Edinburgh. He is a supervisor and trainer in this modality as well as being a psychotherapist.
He believes that change is possible, this comes from his own personal experience of therapy and he is committed to in working in ways that help clients. There is no one method or technique that fits all…and this is reflected in Paul’s commitment to his own ongoing training, he completed a two year Mindfulness Psychotherapy training in 2012.
He has a deep respect for all of his clients and knows that life is difficult for everyone at some point in their lives.
Paul works both short term and long term with people, depending on what challenges they are grappling with.
He works with individuals and couples and runs groups and offers supervision. He particularly relishes his work with men as he knows that it can be difficult for men to admit to themselves that they need help. He states, “Without doubt, having personal psychotherapy has been the most significant event in my life.”
Paul is accredited by the BACP, UKCP and COSCA and abides by their ethical guidelines.
