About Paula Hegarty

I am an experienced therapist who provides evidence based therapy to individuals who have mental health and life adjustment difficulties.
- I can help with a number of issues you may have.
- The key to my service is to offer the individual a space to talk to someone not involved in difficulties and to help to develop a different perspective.
- I aim to help individuals become more self aware and develop healthier coping skills which are directed towards growth and better mental health.
- Sometimes we become entrenched in thoughts and behaviours which keep us stuck in negative patterns which are difficult to break on our own.
- Therapy can start a change process which allows us to break out of these patterns and start living in a more positive manner.
- I work holistically so I look beyond the problem presented to the "whole" person as the symptom can indicate deeper issues which need healing.
- I am down to earth and grounded in approach so I do not "baffle" with science.
- Rather, I develop a strong therapeutic relationship as an important part of the change process and integrate whatever therapies are most appropriate for the individual and their issues.

My training, work experience and any achievement

- BA degree (hons)
- MSc in counselling
- PG diploma in CBT
- 16 years experience in a primary care setting working with adults with mental health difficulties.
- Work experience with young people aged 12 + in a young people’s centre and college setting and have also offered community counselling.
- I am accredited with BACP, BABCP and EMDR Europe.
- I have attended courses in Compassion Focused and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and use these approaches in my work.

Further Information

My Supervision:
- I have been supervising counsellors since 2008 and high intensity CBT therapists since 2009.
- I completed a supervision course in bereavement with Cruse in 2006 and a HI CBT supervision course at Teesside University 2010 and I supervise trainees on local HI CBT courses.
- Certificate in CBT supervision.
- I am supportive and reassuring to facilitate supervisees reflection on practice.
- I abide by the ethical framework of BABCP and BACP.
- I am focused on growth and improvement of practice and will suggest reading material/workshops as regular CPD is important for development.
- I adapt my supervision to the stage the supervisee is at in their professional development.
