PA Counselling & Psychotherapy
Hi my name is Puja I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Manchester, Salford.
PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL IF YOU WISH FOR ME TO CONTACT YOU AT p•••••@••••.com
I specialise in both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Humanistic Therapy. I believe that every person should integrate the 3 C's for their mental health, Choice, Chance & Change. This means 'You must make the Choice, to take the Chance, if you want anything in life to Change'.
Exam stress this year was too overwhelming and almost gave up. I was told to speak to somebody about it and see if they can help me calm my nerves and reduce my stress level and that’s when I come across PA Counselling and Psychotherapy. Puja really helped me to understand steps that I have to take to reduce my worry and to have confidence and belief in myself.

I have known this person for many years and seen, first hand, the commitment, dedication, passion and hard work she has put in to get this qualification and now the start of her own business.

I offer face to face and telephone therapy.
Quite often we are our own worse critic. Do you take better care of others than you do yourself? Do you feel that people don't really know the "real" you? And if they did see the real you, they wouldn't like you? Do you keep finding yourself in relationships that feel toxic? Do you feel deep down that there is something not quite right?
The counselling I’ve received from Julie has, over a couple of years, been transformative, helping me find contentment and optimism when I couldn’t before. The therapy is in-depth and empathetic - Julie listens, notices and remembers what you’ve said, making it easy to trust her with difficult things. She’s a laugh too. I’ve incrementally found things easier to deal with, and continue to, as a result of her thoughtful counselling.
