About Therapist Paul Melia
(BA Hons MPhil)

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

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

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

I took over the running of Therapy in Manchester in 2010. Before qualifying as a therapist I was an Art Historian for nearly 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, organising exhibitions of their work, writing essays and books.
