Paul Harrison, L5 Dip Counselling, MNCS(Accred), MBACP, AVR Acc Mem.
My training and indeed philosophy come from a person centered perspective, however I am qualified in both CBT and Brief Therapy approaches.
I offer a quiet space which is professional, friendly and confidential. A place where you can be heard and really listened to in times of difficulty, worry or confusion.
I offer a service that is free from any judgement but with congruence and empathic understanding.

As a Sports Therapist, and now as a counsellor, I have over two decades of working and treating athletes and sports teams, both professional and amateur across Northern Ireland and beyond.
As well as dealing with the physical, I was continually faced with the psychological issues facing these injured athletes. I understand the problems they face, the worries they have and ultimately the decisions they have to make for their future if the injury is of a serious enough nature that it may mean retirement.
I also have a background and deep understanding of Trauma and specifically PTSD. I have researched Vicarious Trauma specific to legal advocates in Northern Ireland as well as its impact on other groups within this society.
