About me

Please note that I continue to offer support during COVID-19 social distancing is observed, often sessions can be started by phone or video and we have the option of face to face when it feels safe to do so.


Hello my name is Paul Wheatley and I am a fully qualified and accredited male psychotherapist registered with the UKCP. I am also a counsellor and a fully registered member of the BACP which means I abide by there professional ethics and codes of conduct. I am also a member of UPCS.

My aim is to offer you a confidential, ethical and professional service for adults aged 18 and over. A service that is also very caring, encouraging and genuinely supportive.

I offer therapy both face to face or via video calling or telephone.

How can I help?

I am happy to support you with any concerns, on a short term basis, or with deeper issues that take us on a longer journey.
I offer you a genuine, authentic, warm and trusting environment in which to help you explore and develop enough support and insight to make the choices that are right for you as an individual.
I am keen to understand how you're impacted by your experiences and I will usually share my own response to what you bring in order to help you begin to raise your own awareness and open up new choices that before may have felt elusive.

I have worked with issues of loss, bereavement, relationship breakdown, anxiety, sexuality, trauma, anger management, abuse, depression, job loss and change, as well as the distress & confusion from recent or historical traumatic experiences.

For more information please contact me.

My experience is that therapy works and I have seen change in my clients.

Therapy sessions are often lively, creative, challenging and profoundly enlightening. Imagine having someone genuinely interested in YOU and committed to helping you live the life that you choose.

Member organisations


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.
