“One of the benefits of working with Paul was that he helped me to find my own solutions and hear my own truths, rather than being told what to do or be pushed towards particular outcomes. I could decide what worked best for me. Being able to talk and share without feeling judged was wonderful. I felt like I was able to open up completely without feeling that I would then be boxed in to a particular category or 'diagnosis' in the way that many therapists work. It was freeing to feel that I could just share my feelings and emotions honestly with another person and work forward from there, without getting bogged down about whether or not I was "anxious", "depressed" or any such category. I just felt like I was treated as a person with my own unique feelings and perspectives, and that I was one hundred percent listened to which was really refreshing.”
