Professional Profile

My name is Paula and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited CBT therapist working with Think CBT from Stretford in Manchester.  I am now able to offer face to face therapy in my office in Manchester.

I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and a registered Social Worker. I have over 20 years experience working within the mental health field. I can honestly say I really enjoy what I do. I have experience of working for the NHS, private health care sector, local authority and a charity.

I am trained a trauma focused therapy called EMDR (this therapy is recognised by National institute for clinical excellence). I use Schema therapy to help you understand you past experiences and your current fears.

If you are struggling to regulate your emotions and you do not understand why, then therapy can help you explore why you have developed unhelpful patterns of behaviour. This may relate to early life experiences. If you find yourself drifting or struggling to understand why your relationship is not working, then therapy can help you understand why. If you feel constantly anxious then I can help you understand the reasons why as well as give you strategies. If you use food, alcohol and or drugs to help with your distress then I will help you understand why. If depression plagues your life then I can help you with this.

As a therapist it is important to recognise the importance of a therapeutic relationship, I therefore ensure you feel comfortable and at ease in my company and I recognise one size does not fit all. I use goals to help clients see how much progress they are making, this also stops therapy from drifting.

I abide by the policies and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity to work as a therapist in the UK.
