Paul Muscat - Qualified Counsellor (MBACP)
Hi there I am Paul I am from Hull East Yorkshire. I have a real passion for supporting people with their positive mental health. I offer a warm and relaxed counselling service to adults in person in East Yorkshire. I also now offer an online therapy service via zoom anywhere in the United Kingdom. I have experience in working with depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, relationships, bereavement, sexuality, gender, OCD, men's issues.
I offer a free 40 minute consultation to discuss what you would like from therapy. I offer appointments during the week, evenings and Saturdays.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began my journey into being a therapist back in 2012 and studied for a certificate in Peron-Centered Therapy at York SJ University. I then worked for a charity in Hull called Cruse for a couple of years. I then decided I wanted to qualify as a counsellor and studied for another three years to obtain a Diploma as a Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. Due to being an Integrative therapist this means that as a client you will benefit from a combination of approaches which best suit you and your needs.
I have experience of working with anxiety, depression generalised anxiety disorder, feeling sad, panic attacks, low self-esteem, family issues, low self-confidence, phobias, stress, bereavement and loss, affairs and betrayals, trauma, sexual abuse, suicidal thoughts, work related issues and anger management.
I work co creatively and the therapy will go at your own pace. I draw on person centered-therapy which is combined with transactional analysis. Together I believe these two approaches offer a client with a good framework in which to work and develop a more positive sense of self.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £45 for a therapeutic hour (50 minutes) and usually see my clients once a week or fortnight.
Concessions offered for
We often talk about relationships with others and I believe the most important relationship is with ourselves and yet we can sometimes overlook this. The core focus of my practice is to develop a more healthy relationship with oneself. I am interested in change and enabling individuals to live a more fulfilling life.
