About me and my therapy practice
Hi I'm Paula. and firstly a warm welcome, it is important to find the right counselor for you. So please take the time to read through my profile and be assured I will endeavor to work with you the best way possible.
I have helped clients overcome stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse and gain self esteem and confidence.
Before becoming a counselor I worked in the voluntary sector helping vulnerable people with a whole range of different and complex issues. I co-created and delivered an award winning Mental Health Program called 'Take the Weight of your Mind' which aim was to build self-esteem, emotional resilience and empowerment
I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
Everyone, at times, can find life a struggle. Whether its events that we are finding difficulty with in the 'here and now' or past issues that are still holding us back. Sometimes we can feel "stuck" in life and can find it hard to decide which road to take.
Anxiety, depression, stress and fear may become overwhelming or run too deeply, for you to talk to family or friends, or you may worry about the impact of disclosure with loved ones. Or you may find that you and your partner cannot seem to be able to resolve your relationship issues or difficulties on your own. If you want to talk about what is happening in your life, I can provide you with a safe space to be yourself, to speak out those unspoken thoughts and put words to those feelings. Having the space to talk through your problems confidentially with an understanding, non-judgmental and empathetic professional can make all the difference to your quality of life.
I am currently offering Face to face and remote counselling and this is conducted via telephone, video or text.
I believe that everyone is unique and as a result have different issues. Therefore different issues need different approaches. I use an integrative approach which uses the best bits from many counselling modalities and is adaptable and flexible depending on your type of issue.
I facilitate and enhance personal growth and insight with the ultimate goal of empowering you to change and move forward in life. I also aim to enable you to maintain what you have learnt in therapy, I will help you to develop new skills and strategies so you have the tools to cope when new problems arise, so you have more control of your life.
My ethos is all around personal empowerment and often this entails changing your thinking about yourself and the world around you. I believe that if you can change your thinking you can change your life.
The right help can bring your life back into balance and help you be properly mindful of your well-being.
I can help with
Stress and Anxiety
My first session
In our first session I will be gathering information about your background and presenting issues so that I can gain an idea about the best approach and tailor the therapy to your needs. We will discuss confidentiality and your expectations of counselling and talk about specific goals that you may like to focus on.
I offer concessions for unemployed or retired people, if you feel you may apply please contact me to find out more. If you would like to find out more about about me, and what I can do for you then please get in touch. I offer a free 15 minute consultation via video call, telephone or text. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to hear more about the way in which I work, ask any questions and get a feel of what working together will look like.
