What People Say
I just wanted to write and say how much I have benefited from my work with Paul. I have found him to be a knowledgeable and competent therapist but more importantly a kind and empathic person. Paul is able to balance gentle challenge and safe exploration whilst maintaining unconditional positive regard. As someone who works in the mental health field I have often struggled to access services as my knowledge and experience had become a barrier in that I found talking therapy frustrating. I was a client who had some insight into their issues but I couldn’t seem to move through them. Paul has helped me enormously in terms of offering practical and effective therapy but did so in a manner in which I did not feel patronised or judged. Paul provided a safe space for genuine reflection and has demonstrated an understanding of my needs which speaks to his skills and to his personal manner. I felt safe with Paul to explore very hurtful and distressing memories and felt validated and supported throughout. This therapy has been life changing for me, not only in terms of the success of the therapy itself but has also provided me with an opportunity to practice and experience a safe relationship. I cannot thank Paul enough for supporting me during one of the most difficult times of my life and being an anchor during such uncertain times. I would recommend him without reservation.
