About me

Hi, my name is Dr Paul Barrett, Clinical Psychologist. I provide psychological therapy, training and consultation for adults (18+) and mental health teams for a wide range of mental health problems, including:

  • Anxiety and stress,
  • Depression,
  • PTSD,
  • Difficulties with self-esteem
  • Personality disorders/ complex trauma.

I have experience in working with clients with both short term, and longstanding difficulties, offering one off assessments, to longer term work.

I work mainly using Cognitive Behavioural and Therapy (CBT) and EMDR, but integrate other therapeutic models when required. This enables us to find a 'best fit' approach based on your individual needs and preferences. I am a qualified EMDR therapist (level 3 with EMDR europe accredited training), which is an evidence based approach for working with PTSD and other trauma related difficulties.

I offer a positive, non judgmental approach and work collaboratively with you to help understand your difficulties and find a positive way forward. Please look at my website for more details.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
