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.

Therapy in Session

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 (, 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 (, 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.
