Paul Collison MBACP, DIP - Individual & Couples Counsellor
Hello and welcome to my profile
I have always been interested in how the human mind works and how my own past experiences affected my present life. From a young age I seemed to have a natural awareness and understanding of people. I am passionate about helping people find their way in life. I have a natural ability to help people feel comfortable in my company - this is very helpful when working with clients.
I work with many different issues with special interest in stress, burnout, anxiety, depression and the many different forms of self-harm. I am a genuine good listener and am able to really focus in on the client and their needs.
I have many years of experience working with clients with relationship challenges. I have trained with Relate as a couple’s counsellor, where I helped many couples find their ever so important communication with each other again.
Its not easy reaching out to a therapist you do not know,I have been on my own personal journey so i know how it feels. Together lets guide you through your challenges and help you get back on track with your life.
Feel free to call me on 07846477726 to book a session
I am more than happy for you to call for a free brief consultation to see how you feel working with me.
