Therapist Biography

Hi, my name is Paul and I am a BACP accredited counsellor who specialises in working therapeutically with children and young people. I also work with adults and have a lot of experience supporting clients who experienced sexual abuse when they were children. My main qualifications are in Person-Centred Counselling, Creative CBT, and Supervision.

I am currently employed by a charity to coordinate a team of counsellors who provide therapeutic support for 11 – 18 year olds in schools across the Plymouth area, and as part of this role I hold a case-load of young clients in 2 schools. Through delivering my own therapy and supervising other counsellors, I have gained a lot of knowledge about the kinds of things young people bring to counselling and what helps them to gain the most from this kind of help.

I bring to my work a trauma informed approach, with a focus on developing a safe and confidential therapeutic relationship, which I believe is the main factor behind positive outcomes. My therapy includes offering the use of timelines, goal setting, play and creativity, and reflecting on and exploring day to day lived experience.

Sessions –

I offer sessions face to face or online / telephone. I have found that most clients choose one way to ‘meet’, however some blend these together to make the meetings more accessible throughout the overall process.

Sessions are 50 minutes long.

I offer a free initial chat for up to 30 minutes, online or on the phone.

Please contact me for my fees and availability.
