Thought Paul was fantastic, the work we did together has provided me both with techniques that allow me to approach and overcome issues similar to the one I faced while speaking to him. The sessions also introduced me to new perspectives that allow me to view situations in a more positive light. (Nick, 3 sessions).
My goals for counselling were unattainable and what Paul helped me realise was that aspects of these goals regarding control, limited logic and toxic masculinity were what made me think I wanted them. Looking at them at the end of our sessions made me realise I did not want some of those things and that Paul had helped me find fulfilment without these unattainable factors. To begin with I was not applying the knowledge and skills I was learning in the counselling sessions as I was feeling particularly self destructive; I am now able to use what I have gained from Paul in my times of need. (Joe, 20 sessions).
