Why turn to Paul Melia for Therapy in Manchester?
People turn to me for a variety of reasons so there is nothing formulaic about my therapy work. Some people contact me because of life’s big events, others because of day-to-day life.
For some it’s due to a general mood that can be difficult to describe.
For others it’s something more focussed: eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia or their binge-purge combination; because of a loss of desire, reduced drive or a sense that their life has stalled; or because of low moods and depression, perhaps following the loss of a person, the loss of an ideal or the loss of something that may not be so obvious or apparent.
Others turn to me because of stress, anxiety and panic; varied addictions or phobias; because of displaced anger or intrusive self-critical thoughts; compulsions, obsessions or the combination referred to as OCD, obsessive-compulsive disorder; trauma and PTSD such as flashbacks; and what has recently come to be referred to as historical issues, abuse.
For others it’s the emergence of unsettling questions concerning their identity – after the birth of their child, for example, or because of a shift in their gender or sexual orientation; and the difficulties that can arise from love, from sex and from relationships.
People turn to me for different purposes so there is nothing formulaic about my therapy work. I offer a supportive environment tailored to you as an individual.
