My name is Paula Louis-Fernand, I am the founder and director of Introspective Therapy; a service for talking therapy. I am an integrative coach-therapist which means I am qualified in both coaching and therapy. I combine a range of theoretical approaches used in psychotherapy, coupled with a variety of coaching styles and techniques. Effectively my work is one of a counselor, psychotherapist and self-care coach.
I facilitate a number of client issues to help identify what may be causing certain problems, as well as improve self-understanding. My work is geared towards helping you gain a better awareness of yourself and your situation as a whole, so you can move forward in a happier and healthier way.
I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space. Together we will unpack and explore what you're carrying within. This includes any feelings and deeper emotions that may be preventing you from moving forward. I will help you gain an alternative perspective, so you can discover healthier ways of coping.
I have worked with clients on a one-to-one basis for 7 years.

"Paula is a great listener, with a natural flare and sensitivity to hear individual narratives. Paula's empathic style fundamentally underpins her professional attributes as a Coach allowing space for personal growth and development."
Jennifer (35, London)
"Having sessions with Paula was exhilarating as I had the opportunity to dig deep into my feelings and find out things about myself that I wasn't previously aware of. Paula has a sense of warmth and understanding that I don't really receive from people in my everyday life. There's a welcoming nature when you sit down with her. Paula has helped me through difficult times and I am much appreciative of that."
Nadia (28, London)
"I find Paula a personable but yet professional competence. I was recommended to Paula when I was in a very mentally and emotionally challenging place. At once I reconciled a forgotten hope with her. I followed some very profound wise council from her and began to rebuild my life. With gratitude and thanks."
Brett (45, London)
"It was an eye-opener for me to have sessions with Paula. She helped me find myself 'the true me' and guided me to be myself. I am a lot happier now and feeling in charge of my life. Thanks Paula."
