About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Paul. I offer counselling from my practice based in my home in Chertsey, Surrey (close to St Peter’s Hospital).

I offer non-judgemental, confidential and supportive counselling which is focused on my client’s individual needs.

My experience working in both education (as a primary school teacher) and as a funeral director means I am aware of the stresses and pressures of demanding and emotionally challenging professions.

I believe that counselling can give us an insight into the way we behave and help us to get in touch with our feelings and emotions. The things we were taught as children and our early relationships can influence us as adults causing us distress and upset. Being able to explore the past as well as present-day feelings in a non-threatening environment can help to make sense of our lives and so live our lives in a more meaningful way.

For the past two years I have worked one day a week as a voluntary counsellor working with bereaved clients at the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices.

I am experienced in working with people who are hard of hearing and am ‘Deaf Aware’. The room I work in is quiet, safe and well lit space. I have some basic Sign Language, use Sign Supporting English and have used a ‘Total Communication’ approach with young people.

I qualified with Foundation Degree (FdSc) in Counselling from The University of Greenwich.

Please contact me to discuss how we could work together with the issues and challenges that you may be facing at this time.
