About me

As an integrative counsellor, I collaborate with my clients to uncover and leverage their innate strengths, guiding them towards a more fulfilling life. My approach is tailored, drawing from various therapeutic methods to best meet each client's unique needs.

Central to my counselling philosophy are the principles of unconditional positive regard, congruence, and empathy. These qualities inform every interaction I have with my clients, providing a safe and supportive environment for personal growth.

My diverse background and personal experiences have deeply informed my work, particularly in the areas of addiction, anxiety, guilt, shame, and self-esteem. Having navigated these challenges personally, I bring a nuanced understanding of the pressures that can lead to unhelpful and harmful coping mechanisms. My focus is on developing healthier ways to manage these issues, tailored to the individual needs of my clients.

While I have a special interest in these specific areas, my commitment remains broad. I am dedicated to addressing any issues my clients choose to bring into our sessions, always aiming to provide the most effective support possible.

I am a registered member of the BACP and also offer relational seven-eyed supervision for fellow counsellors. This service is designed to foster professional growth and development, enhancing relational dynamics and therapeutic effectiveness.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for John Graham. 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.

Working with John over the past few months has been a transformative experience for me in addressing my anxiety and low self-esteem. His approach is notably considerate and respectful, making it easy for me to open up. John excels in active listening and creates a secure and non-judgmental environment, which has been pivotal in my progress. He offers practical advice that has significantly helped me challenge and overcome my negative thoughts. I highly recommend John to anyone seeking compassionate and effective support in their journey towards better mental health.

You couldn’t find a better therapist, and guy in general. John is laid back, friendly, humble and a great listener. I thoroughly enjoy my time speaking with him and he always has the right advice to give. Would recommend 100%
