**Counselling is changing**

Following recent announcements by the Government in relation to coronavirus pandemic, I am sorry to say I will no longer be accepting face to face client work.  If people looking for therapy feel they need to speak to someone about there difficulties, please telephone me on 07394098833 and leave a message.  I will get back to you and either arrange a free 30 minute support call.
I am currently moving my practice online and training to make sure I meet BACP competencies in this area.
Please take care of yourself at this time and feel free to read my blogs around mental health and wellbeing, or read this from the MIND website –
Sincerely Yours, Paul

Hi, I’m Paul Cullen, A professionally trained counsellor, and welcome to my website

Thirsk Counselling is a small private practice offering one to one counselling to adults over the age of 19 in the Thirsk area.
Counselling is an opportunity to sit in a protected and safe space that is just for you to explore what you are finding difficult.
Often counselling and therapy can seem scary and unnerving.  As a trained counsellor its my job to make you feel comfortable and safe.
People come to counselling for many different reasons, seeking answers to questions they might not know they have.  My approach to counselling is only to work with what you bring into the room.
I also feel it is important that a person should feel comfortable when they see a counsellor.  So please feel free to have a read through my previous blogs and have a look on the About Me page to read a bit about me or got to What I Offer where you will find links to my counselling contact, referral form and leaflet.  Hopefully that might give you a bit of an insight about me and help you decide if i’m the right counsellor for you.  Please feel free to email or phone with any questions.
Sincerely Yours
Paul Cullen, A Thirsk Counsellor
