About me and my therapy practice

 Counselling is a confidential and supportive space for you to explore and to address your needs, troubles and concerns. People often gain new insights and greater confidence in their own strengths.

As a person-centred therapist it is my intention to understand how issues are from your point of view. Counselling is non-judgmental and hopefully you will feel able to speak freely about whatever matters to you. 

My experience

I am a BACP Senior Accredited counsellor and supervisor with  twenty years experience. I enjoy working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have worked in various organisations including mental health, drugs and alcohol, young people and  primary school.

I have been awarded an online Autism Awareness Diploma and I have experience of working with dyspraxia, dyslexia and AD(H)D.

Clients I work with

Individuals - adults, young people and children. I also counsel trainees on counselling courses.



How I deliver therapy

Counselling can be long or short term depending upon your needs and wishes. We can discuss what is in your best interests together.

Usually counselling can be online or face to face. Due to the Corona virus I am currently working online.

Practice description

Paula Newman Counselling Services includes counselling, supervision, Focusing and Focusing training. There is further information on the BACP directory and on my website.

You are most welcome to contact me to discuss your needs.

My first session

When you arrive for your first session I will do all that I can to help you feel at ease. I am interested in getting to know you and hearing about what it is that has brought you to counselling.

I will explain my confidentiality policy to you and you are most welcome to ask me questions about counselling and the way I work. I have a client agreement form and data protection policy which we can also discuss.

You may wish to talk about what you are hoping to gain from counselling, or you might not be sure yet. Often this becomes clearer as therapy progresses. It may be that you are feeling distressed and want to speak about your issue immediately.

I am here to listen and to support you in moving forward. People often find that counselling helps them to reach understandings and to know themselves at a deeper level.
