Individual Counselling Service

Paul James Counselling

It can be difficult to take the first step and seek counselling, but it is often a very worthwhile experience.

Counselling can help equip you with the tools needed to manage difficult situations in a more constructive way.

As a counsellor, I understand the challenges that come with seeking help. I provide support and guidance as we work through your challenges together, helping you find the solutions you need to get back on track with your life.

If you are struggling with anything in your life, from relationship issues to grief and loss, counselling can be a very helpful way to gain understanding and clarity. I offer a warm, supportive and confidential service, where we can explore whatever is going on for you in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Counselling can help you to understand yourself and your situation better and to make positive changes in your life and improve your sense of well-being.

Some of the issues I’ve helped my clients with include:

  • Addiction Recovery
  • Understanding and Resolving Relationship Struggles
  • Relational Trauma
  • Increasing Self-Esteem
  • Overcoming Overwhelm
  • Building Confidence
  • Physical or Emotional Abuse
  • CPTSD (Complex post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Lack or Loss of Motivation

About My Service

I help you to understand and process feelings or emotions which may have been too painful or frightening for you to deal with before.

I provide an understanding and a supportive space for emotions and needs that might have been ignored or shut down for a long time. It allows us to process these feelings in a natural way and helps us to understand the anger, fear or shame that may be associated with them.

Understanding your emotions and how to express them can lead to improved relationships, self-esteem and wellbeing. counselling can be short-term, focused on a specific issue, or longer-term, depending on your needs.

I have always had an interest in how the human mind works and how our past experiences can affect our present life. I have always seemed to have had an innate awareness and understanding of people from a young age. I am passionate about helping people find their way in life.

As a counsellor, I will help you understand yourself better and guide you through your challenges. counselling can help you to find your own answers and solutions to your problems. It is a process of self-discovery, growth and change. If you are feeling lost, stuck or confused, I can help you get back on track.

I personally understand the struggles and challenges that life can bring. My own journey of discovery showed me how my past traumas affected my present-day issues. I have experience working in the field of addiction. Counselling has helped me develop empathy, insight and understanding toward others who are going through difficulties in their lives.

As humans, we all deserve to be understood, without judgement. If you are facing any challenges in your life, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I would be more than happy to offer my services to help you on your journey.
