Paul Carter – Counsellor / Psychotherapist
I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003. I work with short-term clients using EMDR for PTSD, trauma and abuse, or CBT and solution focused models for other issues. The aim here is to help clients to learn strategies and solutions for coping with their difficulties.
I also work with gestalt and the person centred models. These models are more relational working in the “here and now” of what is going on relationally between the client and myself. These models are more suited to longer term work to assist clients to find their way through the difficulties they are experiencing.
I also work with body, thoughts, feelings & emotions using Developmental Somatic Therapy. When I am working with clients, I often notice that people lack motivation, drive, ability to ask for support, ability to relax, or ability to let go. Alternatively, the reverse can also be true. Where these are over developed. I sometimes noticed this in people’s responses to situations or in the body. I often work with these in sessions in order to help alliance in their live
By working with these issues in sessions, it helps to support the work being done when someone has been abused, bullied, is depressed or anxious. This work often becomes an important part of what needs to be attended to and helps clients make meaning of and change their lives.
Working in an integrated way, means that I can use any of the above models to support me and the client in the work that needs to be done. Whether you need support with anger management, abuse, depression, anxiety, cultural issues, bullying, relationships or difficulties at work, counselling can help.
It is really important for you to find the right counsellor in order for you to build a trusting relationship in a safe and confidential environment. I therefore offer each client the opportunity to speak with me first in an initial phone call to ensure that I am the right person for you to work with on the difficulties you are experiencing.
