Paula Weninger Counselling and Psychotherapy

Online and Outdoor Therapy based in Sheffield

Hello and welcome! My name is Paula and I offer short and long-term therapy, currently online, on the phone, or outdoors.

My pronouns are she/her. 

I can offer sessions in both English and German. 

I love working together with people who might feel lost to find some answers. I provide therapy that's collaborative, authentic, inclusive, warm and challenging. Most importantly, I provide a safe space where we can think, feel and explore together.


Please feel free to browse my website and get in touch if you think we would be a good fit or if you have any questions.


You can also find me on Instagram as @guilty_conscience_therapy.

I look forward to connecting with you!

I don’t have a set/rigid way of working but tailor my approach to what you need.

Most importantly, I provide a safe space where we can think together. I will listen without judgment and together we will look at what isn’t working for you right now.

Sometimes it can be hard to identify what exactly is holding us back, I see my role in helping you identify and address these issues/challenges and support you to face and overcome these.


I don’t ask “what’s wrong with you”, bur rather: “what happened to you?”

You might have feelings of shame as a result of trauma and find it difficult to regulate your emotions. Trauma therapy involves looking at your triggers, educating about the effects of trauma, and helping you get to a point where you feel in control. 

Feeling safe is so important. It’s not about recounting in detail what happened to you, but about how it affected you.


I welcome people of all backgrounds and identities and strive to provide an anti-oppressive practice.

I think it's important not to individualise our problems but take into account how we are shaped by our circumstances and the society we're a part of.

This includes recognising the inherent position of power and privilege I hold as a counsellor in the therapy relationship and in ensuring that we work together as equals. You are always the expert of your experiences.


I don't believe in hiding behind a professional facade, I think connections are much deeper and better when you get to experience me as I am.

I bring my humour and emotions into the room, because I am human, just like you. I always do this in a way that helps us connect and never in a way that makes it about me.
