About me

Looking to begin counselling, psychotherapy or psychoanalysis in Manchester city centre?

Therapy in Manchester is in the Royal Exchange, St Ann’s Square.

I am experienced in working with a wide range of symptoms including anxiety, panic and phobia, as well as low self-esteem, depression and difficulties with anger.

Every Therapy is Individual

People use my service for individual reasons

• because of life’s big events – a change of status perhaps brought about by a bereavement, separation, becoming a parent or change in employment

• because of day-to-day life – a recurring pattern of thought, feeling or behaviour may have become troubling

• a general mood that is difficult to put into words

• symptoms such as anxiety, panic and phobia, as well as depression, low self-confidence, anger, sexual difficulties and trauma

• for time and space to hear themselves think and feel

Therapist Paul Melia

I am an experienced therapist, drawing on two years work as a Counsellor for a leading private health care company and two years work as Therapist for a North West charity.

I play an active role in the region’s network of therapists and chair the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association.

I established Therapy in Manchester in 2011.

Before qualifying in 2010, I was an Art Historian for 20 years, holding increasingly senior positions within a UK university.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Before qualifying as a therapist, I pursued a first career as an Art Historian for 20 years, holding increasingly senior positions within a UK university
  • I qualified as a therapist in 2010 and established this registered practice in 2011
  • After qualifying I entered further training and am now one of the few psychotherapists in Manchester who is also a practising psychoanalyst
  • I now have nearly a decade of experience working with a wide range of symptoms
  • For 8 years I worked from the heart of Chorlton, south Manchester, growing and developing this practice
  • In 2019 I was able to relocate to the Royal Exchange in the city centre – also home of the famous Royal Exchange Theatre Company
