About Therapist Paul Melia
(BA Hons MPhil)

I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist. My training is in Transactional Analysis, Integrative Psychotherapy and the Psychoanalysis of Freud-Lacan.

I am a Member of the School of the Freudian Letter (freudianletter.org) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk).

I play an active role in Manchester’s network of therapists – for example, I chair the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk) which holds monthly talks and workshops, see our events here.

I took over the running of Therapy in Manchester in 2010. Before then, 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.

Phone or message me to discuss your one-off, short-term or longer-term therapy needs.
