About Paula

I have been counselling and supervising for several years. Prior to this I was a nursery school teacher and the nursery's Special Educational Needs Coordinator. I have four grown up children.

Hearing how things are from your point of view helps me to understand what hurts and what matters to you. Counselling can be a deep and emotional journey that might be challenging and painful at times, so we always go at your pace. I hope that you will experience me as being genuinely myself, a person who you can get to know and with whom you can form a bond. I hope that you will feel comfortable and supported so that you can speak freely and explore your issues in a meaningful way.

In addition to my private practice I have provided counselling and supervision for organisations including: drugs and alcohol, gambling, mental health, cancer care, young people, primary school counselling and adult education. I greatly value my many experiences of working with people who have various backgrounds, identities, cultures and beliefs.

Some years ago a friend introduced me to Focusing. I find that Focusing helps me to understand myself at a deeper level and to move forward in areas where I feel stuck. I am now a Focusing trainer.
