Hello, I',m Paula

A Cognitive Behavioural Therapist for adults and children, Manchester

I have over 25 years experience working in mental health, which includes the NHS, private sector, local authority and the charity sector. 


I have specialist interest in early experiences, trauma and anxiety. However this does not exclude my passion for working with other areas of mental health.
