About me and my therapy practice

Paul is a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist who draws on his experience and knowledge to provide therapy in a safe, supportive and confidential manner. Paul believes in the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and client to be key, built on trust so that a shared open alliance can form.

Mental health impacts on one in four people in the UK during the course of their lives and a therapeutic intervention can be very beneficial to those who suffer from depression, anxiety, bereavement, PTSD, OCD, alcohol and drug misuse, addiction, low self-esteem, panic attacks/phobias, stress and health anxiety.


Paul has a wealth of experience of psychological intervention having worked in various multi-disciplinary work settings including NHS IAPT services (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). Alcohol and Drug misuse services, renowned private residential rehabs and prison. He has also had a successful private practice in Harley Street and in the Home Counties and now works from Guildford and Godalming in Surrey.

His experience has covered various issues including but not exhaustive of anxiety, depression, stress, abuse, relationships, work, self-harm, alcohol and drug problems. Addiction, gambling, sex, eating disorders, porn and the internet.


Paul uses various contemporary research and evidence based therapeutic models including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), MET (Motivational Enhancement Therapy) and Humanistic Person Centred Therapy to help facilitate change and help people with various issues to live more balanced lives.
