Paul Hayward

Psychotherapist in Deal

I offer a friendly and professional service to help you make the changes you would like to in your life. I have worked in finance, education and social care and in various other roles.
I work from the counselling room of my house which is in a quiet residential street and, as I have found and often been told, it feels peaceful and apart from the world.

Background & Qualifications

I have been working in counselling and psychotherapy for about 10 years. I have also worked as a teacher and a Family Assessment Practitioner, among other roles, in Devon, Hertfordshire and latterly Kent. I am BACP Accredited ( I am on the BACP Register as number 052581). I qualified at the Iron Mill Institute in Exeter, Devon, on a course which integrated different humanistic counselling styles (Existential, Gestalt, Person-Centred) with CBT. Since then, I have studied Psychosynthesis and am interested in Jung's work.

My Specialisms

I work with a wide variety of issues. I have found that clients have had the greatest amount of success with working out new patterns of meaning and ways of going on in transitions such as changing or losing a job and coming to terms with the life not lived.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work in a broadly humanistic fashion.
I believe that you are the expert in your life.
I am not here to tell you what to do or offer much advice, though I might make suggestions.
I work to increase your understanding of yourself to increase the number of choices you feel you have to make.
