I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues; bereavement; stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence.

I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I help my clients get great results through simplistic strategies. This begins by me building a great rapport with you fast. I will give you a set of tools you can take away with you to help you make continuous positive lifestyle changes which improve your mental; emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for James Vanstone. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Ive only had a few sessions with James but on our first session we talked over my fears for my driving test and did a hypnotherapy session covering the anxiety. Safe to say my anxiety was much better on the day of the test and I passed. Would recommend.

I have only had a few sessions with James so far, but they’ve been incredible. Our first session he told me he specializes in hypnotherapy among other disciplines- I was skeptical at first but I did a session and I’ve felt the best I have in months, maybe a a few years, in regards to my anxiety. I have had some negative health anxiety, among other concerns, and he’s great at asking me questions, as well as giving advice and sending reading materials. Thank you James!

I've done therapy before with other therapists. I would give them good reviews because they were nice not because they were good at their jobs. James is highly competent and effective at his job and also a nice person too . Highly recommended.
