Member of Professional/Governing Body:
Paul sees himself as a reflective practitioner, who likes to explore the meaning behind thoughts and behaviours and how they affect us emotionally. He believes in a highly collaborative approach, with the client actively shaping their treatment and future outcomes. He places a strong emphasis on an eclectic approach, drawing on all aspects of his training and enjoys being creative in the techniques he delivers.
