About me

Hello, my name is James, and I am a dedicated Integrative Counsellor based in the UK. My therapeutic approach is multifaceted, incorporating Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Transactional Analysis to provide a holistic treatment experience. In addition, I specialise as a Somatic Trauma Practitioner, offering a unique perspective on trauma-informed care.

With over 13 years of professional experience in the treatment sector, I have developed a profound expertise in addressing alcoholism and addiction. My commitment extends to the community, where I have substantial experience working with a local charity. There, I offer counselling services to young individuals aged 11 to 25, helping them navigate through challenges such as self-harm, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression.

My practice is rooted in compassion and understanding, aiming to empower my clients towards healing and self-discovery.

He is a very good therapist, listened to my issues, understood my issues, and his recommendations were enlightening to me

Great help over the last few months. Been very happy and I enjoy our talks. I'm sober for 14 weeks.

Very friendly and competent. Always having the patience to understand all problems. Gives valuable indications and has great ideas. We have made in a few sessions more progress than what I've done in 10 years of therapy with other therapists. Really, really great experience, I can only recommend him to anyone with a difficult case.

It’s been great to talk to somebody that has been through what I am going through. No judgment and a truly well balanced approach to getting well. Could not recommend him more
