Paul obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree at York University, and then pursued post-graduate studies at Yorkville University where he received his Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree. Paul is also a Certified Sexual Recovery Therapist with the American Association of Sex Addiction Therapists. He is also a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists. Paul has also received training in EMDR, a treatment modality that treat those suffering from PTSD and are survivors or rape and abuse. An avid lifelong-learner, Paul is also engaged in ongoing training to expand and sharpen his therapy skills.


Paul works with his clients to formulate treatment goals and a plan of action to bring lasting results. He uses an eclectic approach in his therapy, tailoring his methods to the client's personality, temperament, and learning style. Usually, resolving the clients issues involves making both First and Second Order changes. First Order change looks at the immediate circumstances and factors in a persons life and ways the client can take immediate ownership for their own success and recovery. Second Order change looks at some of the underlying issues that are at the root of the problems so a person can move beyond tolerable recovery to long-lasting improvement. 


Paul's speciality is working with clients who are experiencing a range of compulsive sexual behaviours. These can include: Internet addiction (pornography, chat-rooms, cyber-sex), XXX-movies, phone sex, voyeurism, fetishes, using strip clubs, escort services and massage parlours, compulsive masturbation, affairs, as well as having multiple or anonymous sexual partners.


Freedom from sexual compulsivity is possible, and it is Paul's goal to empower his client's to experience a new way of life that is characterized by self-control, accountability, inner peace, and restored intimacy in their relationships.


There is no set number of sessions to commit to. Paul works in a results-oriented style that will help clients to see immediate movement, as long as they are committed to the process and willing to do what is necessary. 


Other related issues that Paul helps client's with include:


* Depression and Anxiety
* Relationship and Boundary Issues
* Trauma and Abuse
* General Counselling
* Building Intimacy in Marriage


For those who cannot make it to the Peterborough office, Paul also offers sessions via Skype and/or telephone. His website can be found at www.turningpoint4me.com, as well as on Facebook.


Paul has been married for 19 years and lives in Peterborough with his wife, two sons, and their pet Schnoodle.
