Our Therapist Paul Melia
BA Hons MPhil
I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and practising analyst, and chair of the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk) .
My training is in Transactional Analysis, Integrative Psychotherapy and the Psychoanalysis of Freud-Lacan.
I began working for Therapy in Manchester in 2011. Previously, I was an art historian for 20 years, holding increasingly senior positions within a UK university where I enjoyed a 10-year working relationship with artists David Hockney and Peter Greenaway.
I am a member of two professional bodies: as a practising analyst, The School of the Freudian Letter (freudianletter.org); as a therapist, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk).
