Therapist Paul Melia

I am a qualified and experienced therapist, and established Therapy in Manchester in 2011.
Before then, I had a first career in the arts for 20 years, occupying increasingly senior positions within UK universities and working with artists David Hockney and Peter Greenaway.
My training is in Transactional Analysis, Integrative Psychotherapy and the Psychoanalysis of Freud and Lacan.
I draw on two years experience as a Telephone 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.
I am chair of the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk).
I am a Practising Psychoanalyst and Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk).
