I am Paul. A warm welcome to my counselling practice, Whole Psychology.
On the other pages, I have explained all about having counselling and how I can help. On this page, I have tried to give you a sense of who I am and what working together will be like.
You’ll find I’m easy to talk to. Not because of my skills or training but for me counselling has to be far more than a clinical process. Whilst my work is rooted in therapeutic knowledge and psychology which means no guess work having counselling is a deeply personal journey of the heart and mind. To alleviate suffering, and enable you to live comfortably and confidently in the world ,and empower you to understand yourself better and know how to manage life in ways that work for you, and I know some of getting to that place isn’t always easy.
When I needed help, asking felt huge, and I was scared I might break down, about being honest and I was uncertain about counselling or even where to start. So, I know how you could be feeling now. As it was for those who helped me, I care deeply that your counselling is not only successful but equally how we go about it. Trust built on respect, compassion, sensitivity, a joint effort with me on your side, and me guiding and helping you through. My experience was so life changing I came into counselling. I know what is possible even when you have no idea where to start, and I am enthusiastic to share that with you.
You’ll also find I have a sense of humour, which got me through many a tough time, and in sessions you get all of me. A normal relationship and no formality, just lots of support and help for you to make the changes you want for yourself.
If you would like an initial no obligation conversation let me know. We can find out if we are a good fit for my services. If we are you are very likely to have the outcome from therapy you want. If I think another direction will suit you, I will point you in that direction. I don’t want either of us to be disappointed with the outcome.
