The Host

Prior to opening the Maison d’en Bas, Paul was a researcher at the University of Edinburgh where he conducted research into stuttering. He has degrees in speech therapy and psycholinguistics (the psychology of language), and a PhD in experimental 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 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 Japanese 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.
