Paul Wilkins

 I am an academic and therapist deeply committed to the person-centred approach about which I have written papers, chapters and books. My doctoral study was concerned with what it means to be person-centred and I am currently as much interested in how to be person-centred as a researcher as I am in extending my understanding of person-centred theory and practice. I am passionate about the creativity I see as inherent in the approach and seek to apply this to all areas of my life. When I am not thinking, writing, researching or teaching, I enjoy the good things the world has to offer; wild places, music, wine and food, to name but a few! Until my recent retirement I was senior lecturer in the Department of Pyschology and Social Change at Manchester Metropolitan University.
