Therapist Paul Melia
BA Hons MPhil
I am a qualified and experienced therapist. My training is in Transactional Analysis, Integrative Psychotherapy, and the Psychoanalysis of Freud and Lacan.
I established Therapy in Manchester over a decade ago, in 2011.
I draw on two years experience as Counsellor for a leading healthcare provider and two years work as Therapist for a North West charity.
I have served on the editorial board of the Transactional Analysis Journal, a peer-reviewed journal focusing on Transactional Analysis psychotherapy.
From 2013-2023, I played an active role in the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk), first as Events Programmer and then as Chair. I remain a member of the association.
Since 2011, I have been a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk), a professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists practising in the United Kingdom.
Before qualifying as a therapist I had a first career in the arts. For 20 years I occupied increasingly senior positions within UK universities, as well as publishing books and curating exhibitions and retrospectives of work by David Hockney and Peter Greenaway.
