About Paula

Paula Short Personal Development Courses and Psychotherapy

My approach is primarily humanistic, working from the person-centred model, however I have also integrated some of the key concepts behind other theoretical approaches and may utilise techniques from these models

I have over twenty years experience as a Psychotherapist and over ten years experience as a Group Facilitator and Lecturer in third level education in Counselling and Psychotherapy, up to and including Level 8 programmes.

I also have a background in musical theatre and this allows me to bring a high level of creativity to my work.  Knowing that each individual is unique, I believe that the personal journey to happier mental health will also be completely unique.

I would love the opportunity to journey with you.
