Hello, my name is Jason, I am a licensed therapist in the UK with 4 years of professional work experience.
A little bit about me.
So, why did i become a counsellor? Well, It was my own lived experience of struggling with my own mental health issues that propelled me to want to become a counsellor myself.
After some years of 'stalling' and feeling 'lost' I found myself at a crossroads in my life, I had two choices, I could 'cave in' under the weight of that feeling that was crushing me, bemoaning the hand that had been dealt to me OR i could harness my pain and those experiences and use them as a fuel to motivate me to help others who are also suffering right now.
What you can expect from me? My goal is to help you to realize your true potential, help you suffer less and live more fully! The approach I gravitate towards is of a person centred nature, this means you are placed at the centre, you actively take the reigns during each session, you steer wherever we go with me supporting you every step of the way.
My work is not limited to this approach and if necessary i will borrow from other modalities if needed. This is a collaborative journey we embark on together but i want to emphasise that it is you that stands at the helm and steers where we go on this journey.
My job as your therapist on this journey will be to provide you with a safe space, 'a place for feelings' as i call it, somewhere you can be you, i mean the real you, somewhere that you can be heard. It is my Job to provide a space that is non judgemental, empathic and somewhere you will be listened to with warmth and unconditional positive regard.
Experience and Interests.
I have experience in helping clients from all backgrounds with stress & anxiety, coping with addictions, trauma, depression, & coping with life changes or life purpose even. I also have a particular interest in existentialism and Spirituality too.
I can appreciate taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
If any of the above has resonated with you and you feel we could be a good match then get in touch, i look forward to meeting you!

Jason has been incredibly supportive and helpful throughout the therapy process. Although at times it is difficult to share personal details, Jason's assistance and demeanour has smoothed the whole process. I would wholeheartedly recommend him, and am thankful for his patience, expertise, ideas, and his ability to listen.
