Counselling: Addictions

Paul Fitzpatrick

MBACP

Welcome to my page.  I have been in that unimaginable place where I did not know where to turn, or even know where to begin to make the necessary changes to my life.  It is through my own positive experiences of counselling that I decided to train to become a counsellor.

I have experience in working with people in recovery from addictions relating to alcohol and substance misuse.  I also work with other issues that can be connected to addiction such as depression, anxiety, anger, relational concerns, and low self-esteem, to name but a few.

If you are struggling to manage your current concerns, are troubled by your past experiences, or if you are anxious about the future, I can provide you with support and encouragement while you explore your concerns and feelings at a pace that works best for you.

I offer short and long term integrative counselling, incorporating the psychodynamic and person-centred models, to support and enable you to work towards your goals.

I understand that taking that first step towards seeking support can seem very challenging.  It is with this empathetic thought in mind, and the ethical framework that I work within, that I will always endeavour to establish a transparent and trusting therapeutic relationship, without judgement, in a safe and confidential environment.

If you think that you could be ready to take your first step towards positive change and emotional wellbeing, I can offer you a free 20 minute telephone consultation to answer any questions you might have, and I can explain how I work.  You can then decide if you wish to make your first appointment.
