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 patient and easy to talk to. Not because of my skills or training but for me counselling isn’t a clinical process. Whilst my work is rooted in therapeutic knowledge and psychology, I understand you could be sharing what is deeply personal about yourself and your experiences and so I know, some of getting to the place you want 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.

I can also see the funny side of life, which got me through many a tough time, and in sessions you get a normal relationship, and no formality, just lots of support and highly personalised help, to achieve lasting tangible benefits for you and your relationships: practically, emotionally and behaviourally.

Also to be able to leave feeling comfortable in yourself and confident in knowing you can handle your own future difficulties, and how to enjoy a life which is more than just getting by no matter what has gone before.

If you would like a no charge initial conversation or meeting let me know. We can find out if my help is a good fit for your needs and if so, you are very likely to have the outcome from therapy you want. If I think other help is more suited for you, I will say as I don’t want either of us to be disappointed.
