Would you like to change the way that you live your life? Paul is a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with experience of working with a range of issues. He can help you to overcome your problems in an accepting, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
We all need help during difficult times. A lot of people feel anxious, unhappy, overwhelmed or stressed-out at some point and find that they need a bit of support. Coming to therapy allows you to talk over your problems and to work out how you can make the changes that you would like to see in your life.
It’s OK to feel nervous or confused about starting therapy, especially if you haven’t seen a therapist before. Speaking to someone about your problems can be hard but it really is good to talk. Many people find that the most helpful part of coming to therapy is being able to speak to someone who will listen without judging.
Paul has experience of working with a range of issues, including
- Social anxiety
- Low self-esteem
- Anger management
About Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT involves looking at how your thoughts, emotions and behaviour are connected, and then breaking the cycles of negative thoughts and behaviour to bring about lasting change. By using CBT methods Paul can help you to achieve your goals, overcome your problems and see things differently.
CBT is based on the idea that if you change the way that you think and behave then you will change the way that you feel. Paul can help you to work on practical solutions to your problems and to find new ways of behaving in situations that you find difficult.
As well as looking at what you can do to help yourself in the present and future, CBT also involves looking at your past and how it affected you. We are all shaped by our surroundings and finding out how your problems developed can lead to greater self-awareness and improved ability to deal with difficulties in the future.
A course of CBT normally lasts between six and ten sessions, although this can vary. Sessions would normally be every week but Paul is flexible regarding the frequency of appointments.
Paul has a COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills from Glasgow Caledonian University and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Groupwork from the Centre of Therapy in Glasgow
He is BABCP registered, fully insured and holds a current PVG certificate. He receives regular supervision from a BABCP accredited supervisor.
Paul is a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and works and abides by their code of ethics.
