About me

D. Paul Davies BSc (Hons) (Psych), BACP (accred).

Newid a Gobaith is the name Paul Davies uses to identify the services he offers as a therapist. Paul, who has lived in Wales all his life chose the name  because, translated from Welsh to English, means Change and Hope. These words are representative of his approach to counselling. He helps people find ways of taking control of inevitable or unavoidable change in their life or other difficulties that they present. This control can promote a more positive change  He values the belief that hope and change realistically maintained and encouraged can set a person on the road to a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

Paul is a psychological therapist and experienced accredited counsellor. His approach is understanding, non-judgemental, professional, supportive, and when required, directive and structured. His service is confidential to the highest level. Paul practices an integrative style of counselling which includes, when appropriate, CBT and Mindfulness. Paul is also a fully qualified and practicing EMDR psychotherapist and he offers this specialist psychotherapy in appropriate circumstances.

Therapy plans are structured exclusively for the individual in accordance with the person's personal needs. Paul has 29 years of experience in helping people across a broad range of issues.

In addition to his private practice he works as a University Counsellor providing counselling for students and staff. He has previously worked as Senior Counsellor within the Occupational Health department in local government and has been an associate lecturer teaching counselling skills in an FE college. He provides Supervision for practicing and trainee counsellors.

The majority of counsellors refer to the individual attending counselling as a "client." To Paul you are not his client - you are a person.

Counselling appointments are conducted in a purpose built timber cabin in a peaceful rural location at his home address.
