About me

I am a genuine, caring and insightful professional who creates a safe therapeutic space in which to foster self-awareness, mindfulness, personal growth and transformation. The decision to seek therapy is often not a simple one but once taken it marks a commitment to care for yourself that may then be fostered in our work together until you are able to meet your dilemmas or troubles with more understanding, gentleness, and greater ease.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives

I've come away from sessions with James feeling lighter, and more accepting of myself. I had never had a male therapist before, so I was a little cautious but he was patient and understanding about that. It worked for me to have this combination of addressing issues and then laughing to blow off steam. I've learned a lot and softened in my perspective throughout the process.

Working with James has been a transformational experience. It's so empowering to see sustainable personal growth for the first time with the help of therapy. His counseling style is like having an unconditional cheerleader. He's there for you in the pit and celebrates your progress! After EVERY session, I feel like I have the fuel to face my challenges independently.

Working with James has been especially insightful and helpful. He has helped me see the patterns that have held me back in the past. Offering a safe enviorment that is judgement free and very open for sharing anything.

I have seen tremendous progress within myself in the span of a few months, and he has been a big part of my success. He offers a lot of helpful exercises and worksheets that are very helpful and easy to work through.

He is a very mindful therapist that takes your concerns into consideration, and he also shares a handful of books and podcasts that he thinks are suited for you.

I recommand attempting to work with him and hopefully you'll have great progress, as I had myself.

James is a wonderful therapist.
He has helped me realise issues that were holding back. He is guiding me along a personal journey of growth and understanding and I am very grateful to have him to talk to.

Work with me!
