Paul Keshishian (Dip. Counselling) MBACP Reg.
Thank you for looking at my profile, I hope that you find the information useful but please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any clarification or further information.
To give a bit of my background, I have worked with many clients with varying difficulties from relationship problems to anxieties to addictions, lack of self esteem etc... I work predominantly in a person centred way, the client leads the session and we go at the client's pace.
Just a few important points. Confidentiality is extremely important in any counselling session- I can explain more about this by phone, email or in person. A counselling session is 50 minutes in duration. At out first meeting I would explain the boundaries of confidentiality and find out a little about what has brought you to me. I work from a rented garden room which is quiet and safe.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed a level 4 Diploma in person centred counselling at Amersham College. I have also completed the first year of a person centred counselling course at the Metanoia Institute prior to that.
I worked for 12 years at a residential rehab working with clients with addictions and the associated emotional difficulties and underlying issues, (I don't only work with client's with addictions).
