Paulette Barker BA (Hons)
Hi, my name is Paulette, I have been working as a qualified Integrative Person-Centred Counsellor for the last 18 years, and have worked with clients in both short and long term therapy.
I am experienced in providing counselling to both young and mature adults through One to One counselling sessions, and I have also delivered training.
I aim to create a safe environment to enable the development of a therapeutic relationship with each client.
Individuals come to counselling for a variety of reasons, and often face difficult decisions linked to issues that are important to them. The therapeutic space provided in the counselling room will allow us to work through the difficult processes together.
My aim is to help you to work through the difficulties that you may be facing, helping you to gain greater self-confidence, clarity and peace of mind.
I am a registered member of the BACP and closely adhere to their Code of Ethics and Professional Standards for the counselling professions.
Your initial consultation will be an assessment, lasting approximately 50 minutes, during which time I will ask a number of questions that will give you an opportunity to begin talking about your difficulties. I hope that you will also start to discover how counselling may help you.
At the end of the session you will be given the opportunity to decide whether or not you would like to continue your therapeutic journey with me.

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.
