Hello everyone, I'm Paul, a qualified and registered Mental Health Nurse, Therapist, and Coach. My Therapeutic offer includes, Hypnotherapy, Transformational Coaching, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Services can be tailored to your specific needs, offering a singular therapeutic modality or a blended and integrated approach depending on your issues, needs or challenges. An integrated offer provides access to multiple approaches, techniques, coping strategies, self-reliance, and resilience.

Once we reach a shared understanding of your issues, we will focus our time on interventions and skills to help you achieve your goals. Specifically, we will challenge the negative and self-limiting thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back, serving no positive purpose to you, striving for acceptance is also key to creating and maintaining change. Other techniques include positive affirmations, breathwork, and mindfulness; designed to work with you in your daily routines, building positive daily habits is proven to increase self-reliance and resilience, meaning goals can be sustained.

Sessions with myself will ensure you feel safe and listened to, without judgement. You will find sessions enable you to open up, express exactly how you feel, and be equipped to carry on our work outside of sessions.

Hypnotherapy is a mind-body intervention in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility in the treatment of a medical or psychological disorder or concern. Hypnosis will lead you into a deeply relaxed state, use your agreed methods to help you towards your goals (for example, suggesting that you do not want to carry out a certain habit). During Hypnosis you will be in a trance state, remain awake, be aware of your surrounding, and what is happening. It is important to note that you will remain in control and can end the trance/session at any time.

The essence of coaching is to help you change in the way you wish and guide you in the direction you want to go. Coaching can support you at every level in becoming who you want to be, builds awareness, empowers choice and leads to change. Put simply, coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the 'here and now' rather than on the distant past or future. Coaching can help you to identify skills to be developed, key strengths, and strategies for improvement, it is dilemma specific and goal focussed.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) works on negative thoughts, feelings and behaviour cycles that cause distress. CBT is a structured approach and is aimed at particular problems. Often, intervention can be brief or take place over a longer period (up to 20 sessions) depending on the nature of the problem. CBT has a strong evidence base for effectiveness and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT for Depression, Anxiety, Panic, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) among other problems.

‘Paul made me feel as if I had another person who truly cared about me getting better as much as I did myself but also actually had the knowledge and experience, I needed to do so. Paul taught me a lot about anxiety and mental health but more importantly, myself. I came to conclusions about my anxiety, character and relationships with Paul which I myself struggled to do after 20 years. Paul has an innate ability to help and view things with the perfect mix of objectiveness, care and knowledge from his field. I learned many techniques and skills with Paul which I will now carry with me for the rest of my life’.
