Approach: He works as an integrative psychotherapist with a strong emphasis on client-centred therapy.

Paul has a particular interest in language; that the stories we tell and the language we use to tell them are powerful ways to uncover our hidden and sometimes unhelpful ways of seeing the world.
Paul has experience working with a wide range of issues including:
- chronic illness,
- bereavement and loss,
- relationship issues,
- financial stresses.
