Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Paul is an exceptional person and change agent. He combines deep understanding of human psychology and relationships with a playful and challenging style to generate new insights and transformation in individuals and groups. He embodies a deep respect for others which allows him to get close to the core developmental issues an individual may be struggling with, whilst always respecting the person for who they are and the qualities they bring. Paul has been an inspiration to me on may occasions in my own development, and instrumental in some of the choices I have made such as training in Gestalt psychotherapy. He is a wonderful ambassador for Gestalt and its application in a wide variety of settings. I feel very lucky to have worked with Paul over the years."  —Pete Hamill, senior consultant, Roffey Park Institute

“Paul is a deeply experienced, worldly wise, totally present force for good in the world of personal and professional development, coaching and consulting. His perceptive attention to the fine grain of the consulting relationship is truly inspiring. To experience Paul's design and delivery of some or all of the Gestalt in Action series of workshops is a professional life changer. I know that I would not be consulting at my current level, intensity and fluency without his tailored and precisely tempered support and precise challenge over the last 12 years. I have no hesitation in commending Paul to you as facilitator, counsellor, coach, consultant or supervisor.”  —Simon Cavicchia, Gestalt In Action
