Paul is a trainer on a UKCP accredited Relational Integrative Psychotherapy programme at SCPTI in Scarborough.
‘Integrative Psychotherapy’ is both a fusion of different models of Psychotherapy, each therapist building their own unique way of working with a client but also the process of working with a client enabling them to integrate the many different aspects of their personality. It is the process of making whole. Therapists work with clients in a powerful relationally centred way using integration to promote understanding and self-acceptance in order that it becomes possible to face each moment openly and freshly without the protection of a pre-formed opinion, position, attitude, or expectation.
Paul currently delivers Training and Supervision to NHS, Local Authority and Third Sector Providers. Trainings relate to Trauma Informed Practice, Psychotherapeutic Skills and Complex Care Work in Mental Health.
Paul offers both group and individual Clinical Supervision. Clinical Supervision is a mandatory process necessary to the safe and ethical practice of all Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Psychologists and Mental Health professionals.
It is a collaborative relationship in which the Supervisor helps the Supervisee explore their clinical practice paying close attention to both conscious and unconscious processes.
Paul holds a Diploma in Supervision (SPTI). Paul is a member of the Board of Directors for the Scarborough Psychotherapy Training Institute and has worked as the Deputy Course Leader on the MA and MSc Integrative Psychotherapy programmes for Derby University and the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) in Nottingham. He has trained as a Trainer for the national KUF Personality Disorder programme and continues to train across NHS, Local Authorities and Independent Sector providers. He was awarded an Associate Teaching Membership (SPTI) in 2004.
