About me

Paul Barrett is an integrative psychotherapist based in Barnes, South West London, Chelsea and Paddington. He is a fully clinical accredited UKCP counsellor and psychotherapist. He is also a member of the BACP, CCPE, EMDR UK & Ireland and adheres to their codes of conducts and ethical frameworks.

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting process and its essential that you feel comfortable enough to share memories and information that will help with the therapy process. Whatever your reasons for seeking help with an issue, it takes courage to do so. People are often fearful of ‘exposing’ their deepest selves and of trying and failing. With the help of the right therapist you can promote self-confidence, encourage self-growth, improve relationships and reduce emotional fear and suffering.

Paul has a proven track record in helping many clients move forward with their lives and is recognised for his gentle and empathetic approach.

Integrative psychotherapy uses tools and techniques from a wide source of theoretical backgrounds. The client’s safety is the most important aspect of therapy, as a safe environment that enables the client to work through their processes.

Ultimately, it’s the relationship between the therapist and client that aids the healing process. This relationship is built on trust, which is earned by the therapist. This level of trust is not a given.

Non judgemental therapy, with no blame, no shame, no crucifixion, is fundamental for both the client, and/or anyone else who might be discussed in the therapy. The importance is, whatever happened, and how the client felt, or was affected by the experience.

Over the years he has worked with people suffering from stress as a result of neglect or abuse, often related to early childhood relationships, and how these impact upon their present relationship difficulties. Alongside the past, Paul looks at the present, and how repeated patterns of thinking may stop the client from moving forward. Clients will be able to work in a safe environment and find understanding, where the problems originate.  Acknowledgment, together with processing the feelings, gives us the opportunity to heal and move forward in our present lives.

Paul’s specialist areas include anxiety, stress, depression, relationships issues, anger, loss, trauma, and ADDICTIONS. He has a full knowledge of 12 step programmes and also works with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and is an EMDR therapist.
