About me

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor working in the field with adults and couples for the last 6 years. I have worked with clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma, sexual identity issues, and addiction. There is not a population of people I feel uncomfortable working with.

My therapeutic approach is a combination of psychodynamic, humanistic, and reality therapy. My goal as a therapist is to help you meet your goals, while becoming obsolete. I want you to be able to live your life as free as possible and no longer have a need for me.

I am an EMDR trained therapist, which has been an instrumental tool in working with individuals suffering from trauma such as loss of a loved one or rape. For more information on EMDR follow this link:

I would describe my counseling style as non-judgmental, genuine, warm, and solution-focused. I will help you get to wherever you need to go, whether that's a better sense of self, better work ethic, or lower depressive or anxious levels. I am also here if you just need an unbiased 3rd party listen to your issues in a confidential setting.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Paul Farley. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I have only had a few sessions with Paul and already it’s made a difference. I have enjoyed the challenge of working on myself with him asking attentive questions to push me in the right direction. He seems to truly listen and doesn’t entertain my rambling tangents , particularly if he has a certain point he wants to discuss.
He is my second therapist on this platform and I’m so glad I made the change

Paul is very patient, listens and offers great advice. It is difficult to find a therapist that understands LGBTQ+ issues and provide appropriate and genuine support and advice and tools to work with. Definitely recommend!

He’s great, listens and is always there! Couldn’t recommend a better therapist.

Paul is fantastic. Therapy feels low-pressure, but also goal-oriented in a way I haven’t experienced before. He’s a fantastic listener, and also helps me turn my random thoughts into goals and actions — with plenty of room for changing course when something doesn’t work. Would absolutely recommend him!!

I’ve only been speaking to Paul for a couple of weeks but I’m really starting to feel comfortable telling him things. He is supportive and totally non judgemental.

Paul is very friendly and attentive. I feel at ease chatting to him about myself and I feel no judgement or pressure. His responses are prompt and insightful and I’ve found I look forward to our weekly sessions. A great therapist for those who are just starting out!
