About me

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Celia Veronica Paul and I am Director of Essence Counselling Practice, which is based in East London and provides Counselling to Individuals, Couples and Families as well as EAP services to organisations.

I believe all of us at some point in our lives may have found it difficult to express our thoughts, feelings or emotions especially during a relationship breakdown, for fear of being criticised or judged by others. Holding on to theses thoughts, feelings or emotions often causes stress, depression and/or more conflict and can make life more difficult to deal with. It is at these times that counselling can be helpful to you.

I am a Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and use Systemic, Psychodynamic, and Person Centred approaches to work with both deep rooted emotional issues and communication styles as well as patterns of behaviour to encourage conversations about conflicts and enable insight into problems. The goal being changes in behaviour leading to improved social and vocational functioning, and personal growth.

As a Relationship Counsellor I have extensive experience of working with relationship difficulties and conflict or couple's going through a divorce or separation as well as other issues such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self esteem or lack of confidence, stress, child related issues, domestic violence and sexual issues.

I offer a safe, confidential and comfortable environment to help you begin to sort through your problems and begin to make sense of your life or resolve underlying past or present issues at your own pace.

Essence Counselling Practice Ltd is also an Employee Assistance Provider.
