Formally Paul is both a Family Therapist and CBT Therapist, having a wide range of experience in using systemic family therapy and CBT to bring change and relief to those with whom he works. Paul would describe himself as enthusiastic and interested in his work, keen to avoid jargon and humanise the task of assisting people in improving their life experiences. He believes in making therapy interesting, and above all useful, so is pragmatic in approach. Paul has considerable experience of being able to engage with youngsters who are understandably reluctant and cautious.
