The Host

Prior to opening the Maison d’en Bas, Paul was based at the University of Edinburgh where he conducted research into stuttering. He has degrees in speech therapy (from De Montfort University); and also in psycholinguistics (the psychology of language), and cognitive psychology from the University of Edinburgh. 

Although no longer conducting research, he continues to work in a voluntary capacity for the Stammering Self-Empowerment Programme C.I.C. which hosts a free online therapy course for people who stutter, and also week-long “Walk and Talk” and “mindfulness” retreats here in Etsaut, for people who stutter.

In addition to his work with stuttering, Paul is a keen practitioner of mindfulness/ meditation. He was originally trained in Zen, and over the years has helped set up and run a number of (non-aligned) meditation groups. In his spare time, more than anything, he loves to walk in wild remote environments.
