Hello.  I’m Paul.  I hope you find the information you need on this website.  Do contact me should you have further questions.

Things happen to us in life that leave us not just with bad memories (or sometimes fragmented memories) but also with injuries to our sense of self. Those injuries can be expressed in our moods; what we do or feel we can’t do; how we feel about ourselves, other people, our lives and our futures. That’s what I work with: I offer help with difficulties such as trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, the enhancement of confidence & performance, and personal development.

I have worked as a therapist for over 30 years. I have worked in Higher Education, the NHS, the Third Sector and independent practice as a therapist, supervisor, service manager and trainer of therapists.  In my therapeutic practice I integrate EMDR, clinical hypnosis, Comprehensive Resource Model, body psychotherapies, meditative practices and cognitive behavioural procedures.

I have postgraduate training in integrative counselling & psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis, and consultant status in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR).  I am accredited as a Senior Practitioner by the BACP and a Consultant by EMDR Europe.

I have particular expertise in the treatment of post traumatic experiences: I was a contributor to NICE National Clinical Practice Guideline No. 26 – Post-traumatic stress disorder: the management of PTSD in adults and children in primary, secondary and community care.  I have an interest in transpersonal & spiritual dimensions and have conducted postgraduate research into anomalous experiences in the therapeutic process.

I work mainly in Brighton & Hove but can travel to undertake work in other areas.  I charge on a sliding scale for self-referring clients: a base level of £75 per session for those whose income (from all sources) is less than £25,000, £85 for less than £40,000, £95 for less than £50,000, £105 for those earning more.  I charge a varying fee for clients who are referred by agencies.  If you’re thinking of embarking on therapy, I’d be pleased to discuss how I might be of help before you decide to proceed.
