Hello I am Paul. I am a warm and very empathic person to talk openly with and without judgement. I believe I can provide a safe environment for you to process your difficulties and alleviate your distress.
I look forward to meeting you.
Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is to believe you are worth the trip. I'm here to tell you that you are.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in various settings, N.H.S. educational and charitable organisations. This has been accomplished over 10 years.
I am a registered member of B.A.C.P. I have a Diploma in counselling and C.B,T. (Cognitive behavioural therapy). Qualifications in S.F.B.T. (Solution focused brief therapy). I have undertook further course in bereavement support and Trauma workshops.
I would be best described as an Integrative Counsellor in that I work from a variety of approaches. This can be very beneficial in that enables me to adapt how I work to suit your needs and issues which you may present.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Asking for help can feel like a big step. I hope you find the courage to take it. It may be one of the most important ones you ever take.
