Paul Garner dip.couns (MBACP)
Hi, my name is Paul, and I am based in the town of Loughborough. I am passionate about counselling and what offering you a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment, can do to help you explore those internal conflicts impacting your life. I understand entering counselling can be a very hard thing to start, therefor I offer a free initial consultation, so please be assured that as a “Person Centred Therapist” I will work sensitively and empathically, valuing you at all times, and working with your agenda and at your pace.
I have experience working with Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Relationship issues, Bereavement, Abuse, Low Self esteem as well as a variety of other life issues that you just can’t seem to get beyond on your own.
In this time of national lockdown, Skype, FaceTime or Zoom is a way to see your counsellor face to face from your own computer to engage in your personal therapy. I will offer you a free informal chat, online, where you can meet me to experience what counselling over the internet might feel like. I can explain how I work and how counselling might help you. Please email or text to arrange an online appointment.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
