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 but I used a range of other approaches.
My main area of expertise is to work with clients who have had a drug and or alcohol problem or those already in recovery. I can also support family members or loved ones who are struggling to cope with someone's addiciton.
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 one hour in duration. At our first meeting I will explain the boundaries of confidentiality and find out a little about what has brought you to me.
