Paul Wadey M.Sc M.Res PGDip PGCert GradCert DipClinSup Registered MBACP (Accred)
As an experienced Clinical Supervisor, registered accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist (MBACP Accred), and Systemic Family & Couples Practitioner, with over a decade of learning from my clients, I work with adults, couples, young people, families, groups, executives and clinical supervisees.
Training, qualifications & experience
Leading up to and during this period I self-funded myself through a rigourous programme of academic and clinical study; M.Sc Psychology (Essex), M. Res Psychoanalytic History (Goldsmiths), PGDip Couns (Goldsmiths), PGCert Systemic Practice (Beds) and GradCert Systemic Practice (Birkbeck) (please see my website for a more expansive list).
An initial four-year clinical supervised core-training in Psychotherapeutic Counselling at the Unit for Psychotherapeutic Studies, Goldsmiths, University of London, ended successfully in 2003. I then began reading for a research degree in Psychoanalytic History within the same department at Goldsmiths. After a while I undertook a second masters degree, this time I read Psychology. Since then I have undertaken two highly-specialised family therapy trainings in Systemic Couples and Family therapy.
Speaking as an experienced clinical supervisor, counsellor/psychotherapist, systemic family practitioner and psychoanalytical historian, I believe that my professional and personal learning alike has been informed by and benefitted hugely from practical, clinical and academic contexts equally.
My private practice was formerly based in and around SE London (i.e. Lewisham & Catford & South Norwood) and Kent, where I worked as a counsellor from the late nineties with young people at risk, young adult offenders, vulnerable adults, and BME client groups presenting with complex and highly complex social and behavioural presentations.
Since 2007 I have practised as a clinical supervisor, counsellor/psychotherapist, and systemic family practitioner in the Colchester area.

In my counselling & psychotherapy practice I strive to maintain deep and sustained emotional contact with individuals, families or couples, whilst also maintaining a high degree of reflexivity to the demands made by modern living on those whom, like so many today, urgently need to find someone well-qualified and experienced with which to build a genuine and trusting therapeutic alliance.
Professionalism, ethical practice, strict confidentiality and discretion are assured. I hold professional memberships with the British Psychological Society (MBPsS), British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), & Association of Family Therapy & Systemic Practice (AFT).

Supervision & training
An important concept not limited to supervision or counselling or psychotherapy might be how we come to know what we think we know.
