Paulette Barker BA (Hons)

About me

Hi, my name is Paulette, I have been working as a qualified Integrative Person-Centred Counsellor for the last 14 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.
