About me and my therapy practice

During the covid 19 epidemic I am offering online sessions in a confidential and secure setting via Zoom, Skype or WatsApp at a negotiated reduced rate.

In the current crisis many aspects of our mental health can be challenging. Adjusting to living with less freedom and perhaps greater stress is difficult, whether we are isolated with family or alone, or working to ensure that essential services continue whilst trying to remain healthy ourselves. Anxiety, depression, fear, loss and grief may feel like constant overwhelming companions, yet they can be held and resolved through therapy.

I offer kind, professional integrative therapy based upon our relationship and respecting your unique value. People seek psychotherapy for many significant reasons, it takes courage to face issues that are causing suffering or challenging you to heal and evolve. I aim to offer a warm, confidential and compassionate space so that as far as possible you feel secure, encouraged and ready to work through your challenges. I’m led by what you feel open to working with as you are the expert on your own experience. Therapy is short or long term.

Good therapy involves mutual trust and often difficult, at times joyful exploration. Finding the right therapist is important and can be a delicate process, so I would like to encourage you to read several profiles, please feel free to contact me just for information or to book a session. Thanks for viewing my profile. 

Kind regards, 

Paul

Practice description

As an Integrative therapist I use a range of techniques from different theoretical approaches, depending on which technique is most appropriate. I offer 1:1 therapy helping adults facing a wide range of issues, including attachment, trauma, family conflict, bereavement, depression, anxiety, ill health, work stress, gender, self identity and finding meaning .

My first session

As I am currently working online there is a reduced charge for the initial assessment of £25. 

This first 50 minute session is an opportunity for us both as client and therapist to gauge how well we might work together and to establish what specific objectives you want the following sessions to focus on. 

There is no demand for you to disclose anything that you may feel anxious or uncomfortable about, and what is disclosed is strictly confidential unless I am significantly concerned that you may be at risk of seriously harming yourself or others.

If you decide that you wish to engage in further therapy at the end of the session we will discuss the details of a contract and review process.
