Paul Silver-Myer UKCP [Reg.], FCCA
An experienced psychotherapist and counsellor based in Finchley, North London.
The act of considering entering therapy, or counselling, is a positive move although it can also induce some anxiety. However, I am keen to help you to find some comfort within your discomfort, by giving you the time and space to reflect on who and where you are, where you wish to be, as well as contemplate the choices you are currently making and those you feel you may need to challenge yourself to make.
I do not label or diagnose people, and neither do I punish you with silence nor deny you a response. I do not sit in judgement nor bring any prejudices or assumptions to our sessions. My aim is to hear your story and help you explore your life and those people and events uppermost in your mind, for whatever the reason.
The potential to feel better having talked an issue or problem through makes the listening process a valuable tool, especially when we do not clearly understand our own behaviour or actions, or the issues, feelings and events that can prompt them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained five years of training in counselling and psychotherapy at a post graduate level. I have a Post Graduate Diploma and an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy & Counselling from Regents University, an institution known for its academic excellence and high professional standards.
I draw principally from existential philosophy though am willing to adapt our sessions to other modalities if it would suit you better.
I am a fully accredited by the UK Counsel for Psychotherapy and a member of the Society for Existential Analysis.
I adhere to the codes of ethics and codes of practice of UKCP.
