I have experience of working with a range of clients both male and female, couples as well as children from the age of 4 to 18.
Hello I am Paula and my aim is to make professional counselling accessible, affordable and convenient - so anyone who struggles with life's challenges can get help. Depression, anxiety, stress, overwhelmed are words we all hear on a daily basis when generally chatting to family, friends or work colleagues . Counselling can help us cope with those over consuming feelings. Sadly we cannot avoid trauma happening but seeking help during the trauma or even months, years later may reduce risk to further illnesses that have been linked to psychological trauma. Are you in an abusive relationship or having issues as a couple?

I work with individuals and couples over the age of 16, I am experienced working with issues such as: Mental & Physical Abuse, Complex PTSD, Anger Management, Bereavement, Self Esteem, Stress, Relationship issues, Narcissistic Personality, Sexuality issues.
I understand that to make that first call or email for counselling can be extremely difficult, the fact you’re here means you’ve taken the first step towards making positive changes in your life. Are you stuck, feeling lost or alone, afraid or upset? I aim to help you to make sense of your fears, worries and anxieties. Many people find it easier to talk to someone who they see as being separate to their life rather than friends or family. I can help you make sense of experiences of the past and resolve complicated feelings linked to these. Therapy can be used to better yourself, allowing you to take complete control of your life.

Seeking therapy is a sign of courage in the depths of conflict. Currently, you may be troubled or overwhelmed, not knowing what is happening either within you, your partner or communicatively between your couple. To be understood and appreciated while conveying the same qualities to another person is an essential component of any satisfying relationship, but it is one that takes an emotional commitment from those involved in finding a resolution. The question I often ask my clients is, "Can you bear the difference of the other, or even tolerate the possibility that they may have a different perspective to the one in your mind?"

Jungian psychotherapy, sometimes known as depth psychology, is a form of deep reflection. It isn't problem centred but it does help to resolve deep rooted problems. The things that affect our waking life may be hidden from consciousness and experienced as a bewildering array of symptoms that appear to have no obvious cause. To complicate matters, these symptoms may be emotional, psychological or physical. Jung viewed symptoms not as problems to be fixed, but as signposts pointing to the need for change. I work on the basis that our minds and bodies have a natural drive towards healing.

People seek counselling for many different reasons. You may be facing a crisis such as a relationship problem, bereavement or other major life change or you may be feeling anxious and lonely.

I am caring and compassionate and provide a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you may gain increased awareness, explore your options and find new ways to cope.

Anxiety, stress and depression can become a real part of our lives until we seek professional help.Sometimes life experiences can feel too much and we can feel overwhelmed in trying to understand or make sense of it all. as a result, we can feel vulnerable, confused, anxious, depressed or even just feeling low in ourselves. Therapeutic counselling is a compassionate, non-judgemental and accepting process of meeting in a confidential environment to process our experiences and find a way of moving forward. I am here to help and invite you to either call or email me to arrange an initial assessment.

We’re naturally resilient, but it’s very hard to see ourselves sometimes when we’re stuck. Having another person to bounce things off of is freeing- it’s healing. So what does therapy look like? It’s usually a process of being heard, seen and cared about.  My role is in helping you tap into your own inner resources to find the answers that are right for you. I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor offering long and short-term work with adults. Counselling is a place where you can speak freely; you will also find humour, compassion and acceptance.

If you are at a point in life where you feel stuck or at a point of crisis, and it's preventing your ability to enjoy things as you have normally, you may be needing some extra help to find a way forward. Or if one or more of your relationships with others is becoming difficult, and you don't know why, then this can indicate you are struggling. If your inner world is feeling desperate or muddled and too difficult to manage alone, then counselling can be a positive step in trying to change that. To sit and explore your story and feelings with someone can be powerful in unblocking difficult feelings and to understand what you need.

If you’re struggling and feel you are in need of support then it’s knowing who you can turn to for support and seek the answers you’re after. Why not consider counselling, it can help with issues from anxiety to self-harm. Counselling can offer you an opportunity to understand why you may feel that way, help your mindset change and allow you to grow and flourish as best as you want to. Children and young people want to feel as "normal" as possible and to not feel like the outsider who may be struggling. The end result is for them to own who they are. And this is possible if you want to give counselling a go for you or your child.

I have seen so many positive changes with people feeling happier and achieving a greater sense of well-being. As we work together, you will discover more about yourself and how your life experiences, thoughts and feelings have impacted upon your life. In addition, we can look at your childhood, blocks and past patterns, to help you feel more empowered in moving forward more positively. I, also, offer meditation/ inner child work upon request.
