About me

My name is Paula and I am a fully qualified counsellor trained and experienced in Person-Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I am open-minded and non-judgemental and provide a warm therapeutic space where you can safely explore your current difficulties.

I am compassionate, empathic and work in a very intuitive way. As we are all different I  tailor my approach to the unique needs and individuality of each client, meaning I work in a very authentic and non-prescriptive way.

My philosophy to counselling and therapeutic/healing work is getting to know all aspects of yourself, even the parts we find unacceptable, and becoming more conscious and self aware. I work with the inner child, shadow self, dream work and use other tools and techniques both traditional and unorthodox to facilitate self awareness and integration to become whole again.

Sometimes the challenges we have experienced in life can leave us with unresolved trauma and with a sense of feeling lost, disconnected from ourselves and others or even wondering if we have gone mad. It can be very helpful to talk to a counsellor about what you are going through and feel that someone understands where you are coming from and offers the appropriate support for you to overcome your difficulties.

Counselling helps you to understand what is best for you, connects you with your authentic self and supports you in making the changes you need to make in order to live the life you deserve.

I work with all belief systems, and with people who don’t identify themselves as having a belief system.

I offer psychedelic integration. Please see my website for more details.

I always work to the clients agenda and needs therefore I am flexible in the amount of sessions I can offer any individual client.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
