Paula has worked as a counsellor for around twenty years. She worked as  Senior Counsellor in the NHS for over fourteen years, as well as for a charity in the voluntary sector,  and in private practice. She is committed to helping people find a way forward and works with all ages from 14 upwards. 


Counselling is mainly a talking therapy although I sometimes introduce other elements to help clients find a way to talk and express themselves. This could be stones and shells or cards/photos, drawing and timelines. I aim to find a way to help each individual find their own comfort level in communicating their emotions and circumstances in order for some healing to begin. 

I have worked as a counsellor for about twenty years and my practice is the result of both personal and professional discoveries,  which have led me to ways of working with people that can be effective with all ages and concerns,  however diverse. 


I offer counselling in a safe, respectful and confidential environment,  and tailor the sessions to suit each individuals needs. I try to be as flexible as possible to try and accommodate your availability. 


Whatever your path through life,  whether you are living with emotional wounding that goes way back,  or dealing with more recent difficulties,  or practical issues,  my aim is to help you deepen your insight and expand your vision to find a more beneficial and meaningful way of living. 


I am fundamentally an existential counsellor but draw on a range of different resources,  gained through training and experience,  to bring therapeutic help to whatever it is that has brought you to this place. 

I'm aware that we are not always ready to talk and so can introduce various others ways to help you feel comfortable enough to open up. I also offer outdoor therapy where we can walk and talk, or sit someone in the open. Or of course,  there's telephone or Skype. 


I offer sound therapy for healing and relaxation.  This can help with high levels of stress,  tension and anxiety and helps to lift the mood. If you would like to know more about gong immersion and sound meditation,  do please get in touch.


Whether your concerns are psychological symptoms or something else that's hard to define,  I'm happy to talk with you about your needs. 

Get in touch when you're ready to take the next step.......
