About me

Paula Bendon, PG Dip, PG Cert, MBPsS, MBACP

I am able to listen to your everyday difficulties in a safe and dependable environment with understanding and empathy.

I can help you with any of your counselling needs. I will also integrate hypnotherapy techniques when required.

These symptoms are frequently experienced by people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Pain disorder, relationship issues and stress.

I specialise in anxiety, depression, bipolar/manic depression, insomnia and addiction. I work together with you to help understand and overcome difficult thoughts and feelings.

In addition I have experience both privately and in the NHS with child related issues, usually with anxiety, low self esteem, eating disorders or sleep problems.

I was a associate member , counsellor and psychotherapist of the prestigious Therapy Harley street, 10 Harley street, London W1G 9PF (Central London, WC1G))

I have a counselling clinic in Putney, SW15, near to Fulham ,SW6 , Richmond, Wandsworth SW18 and south west London
and work for the NHS in psychology both in research and clinically.

I am
a professional member of the British Association for counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been  trained in 'gut directed therapy'   ,an effective treatment  to alleviate the painful and uncomfortable symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) using Clinical Hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is recommended by the NHS and GP's if usual treatment (medication) has not been successful.

In my private practice in Putney/ Fulham/ South West London I offer individual counselling and I adopt an integrated  approach which will be personalised for each client. I work with adults and I have a children-adolescents service too.

I am highly trained in counselling including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Neuroscience and Psychotherapy.

I am also a qualified clinical hypnotherapist, which is effective with many conditions, but especially weight loss using the 'virtual gastric band, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and sleep/insomnia fro both children and adults.

I work part time in the NHS delivering counselling and CBT and clinical research for people with psychosis, and their families, with leading clinical psychologists at the South London and Maudsley NHS trust, King's College London, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology  & Neuroscience and City University London.
