About me and my therapy practice

Hi I am James and my aim is to help you actually live and be able to enjoy life. I have over twelve years of successful counselling experience. I know its a big step, it takes courage but at certain times in our life we need help. I have given support to many clients with a wide range of difficulties. Such as anxiety, depression, anger, grief, OCD, relationships issues and trauma.

Are you experiencing any of these-

  • mind racing, worrying or obsessing about things
  • panic, nightmares
  • feeling overwhelmed
  • lack of motivation, energy, direction
  • Negative thought, critical inner voice
  • relationships and family issues
  • fear of going out or doing anything
  • loss of a loved one
  • work place bullying, changes
  • sexual and sexuality issues

I will listen carefully in a non-judgmental manner and within a safe environment, in order to trace the links between your past experiences and your current situation. This process will help you to understand your present dilemma and I will show you various tools to increase your personal growth and development. To increase your sense of personal choice and to help you achieve a richer sense of connection with yourself and others. 

Please see the reviews on my web site.

About me and my therapy practice

The London City office is now closed and I have successfully been seeing all my supervisees online.  I offer supervision to individuals or groups, to qualified or trainee counsellors and psychotherapists. In the past I worked with a group at Turning Point in Tooting where the client group is substance misuse and a wide range of mental health issues. I currently am a supervisor at the ​https://www.onetooneproject.com/​ in Kings Lynn.

I finished a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Supervision in 2013. In 2019 I attended a BPS course on Essential supervision skills.As a supervisor I provide safety and structure for you to manage any anxiety. I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and with clients I work in an integrative way from my training of Person Centre and Psychodynamic and with an understanding of Mindful CBT.

As a Supervisor I work with The 7 Eyed Model (developed by Hawkins and Shohet) The model is relational because it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist and supervisor and systemic because it focuses on the interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system. The model is called “seven eyed” because it focuses on seven distinct aspects of the therapeutic process, as explained in the sections that follow. It’s important for supervisees simply to be aware of each of the “eyes” of the model, rather than learning each by rote.

Focus on supervisee description of content sessions and client narrative/behaviour

Exploration and reflection on supervisee interventions in the session

Exploration and reflection on supervisee Client relationship and session process

Focus on supervisee counter transference and its implications for working with clients

Focus on how Supervisor-/Supervisee process of what is happening between supervisee and client

Focus on supervisors counter transference

Focus on organisational, cultural, social, ethical and contractual context of therapy and supervision

I am an accredited member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework which I believe is important when you may bring ethical dilemmas. The "BACP believes that supervision can positively contribute to the maintenance and development of ethical professional practice".

Supervisee say to me that from the supervision they feel a release and have a clear mind and they also are then feeling energised to go back to their clients. The relationship is key for us working together.
