Absolutely amazing experience with James - has helped me build some positive habits for myself. Follow the homework and be honest with yourself and him.

After being cycled through a few therapists who were unavailable/unhelpful, James has been really helpful in giving me solid, practical advice that I could apply immediately. I really appreciate how he keeps things lighthearted and positive so you feel open to share anything without judgment. I would definitely recommend him to other people.
