About me

Hi and welcome! My name is Paula Barnby and I work with individuals and coupes,being a registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and Counsellor . I have experience in working with open -ended or for an agreed time period, and have worked with late teens, mid life and older adults age ranges.

My approach is flexible, keeping in mind each individual and their reasons for coming to therapy. Most of us experience emotional problems  or difficulties with ways of being during our life. Some may persist or stay present with us for longer and feel as if they get in the way our life. I aim to facilitate understanding of these.

I offer an initial consultation/s. This is when we'll have the opportunity to meet and to talk about what brings you to psychotherapy and the things that matter to you and to clarify how best to proceed. 

I work in English and have an understanding of Portuguese or French for those who may prefer to speak these.

Clients can self refer or be referred by their GP or Insurance providers to include BUPA, Groupma and further details can be found on my website.

Portuguese spoken. Talvez tenha preferencia de falar em Portugue^s. Este processo de psicoterapia dar-lhe-á a oportunidade de falar com um professional, em confidencia total e sem julgamento. Pode contactar-me por telefone ou email.
