Her fascination with what makes people happy drew Paula Hall into psychotherapy.
I began training as a psychotherapist almost 30 years ago. I trained with Relate as a couples counsellor, then as a psychosexual therapist, which is how I became a psychotherapist through the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.
With a previous career in marketing, I had always been fascinated by psychology, what motivates people and makes them content. Perhaps it’s not surprising that I specialised in helping those who struggle with compulsive sexual behaviour and porn addiction.
Training to be a therapist was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The work isn’t easy, but it’s hugely rewarding. One of the most enjoyable aspects is facilitating groups, and being part of the birth of new, supportive and caring relationships that continue long after therapy has ended.
