About me

You have that fluttering feeling in your stomach again, your heart is pounding in your chest and you're breathing is really shallow. You constantly have a feeling of forbidding, like the world could come crashing down upon your shoulders. Your at breaking point, worried about being out of control and no longer able to cope. Your to embarrassed to talk with your family, friends or partner because you don’t want to be a burden and you know that they have their own problems. However, you know that when you bottle things up in this way the pressure gets so bad that sometimes it feels like your head is going to explode. I know you're so tired and sick of being on edge all the time. You try so hard to keep everyone else happy, but it's making you feel miserable inside. Your mind is filled with thoughts that crowd everything else out… Oh, what’s wrong with me? Am I loosing my mind? Why am I such a mess?

I know that having anxiety isn’t easy. I want you to have the self-acceptance, confidence and calmness to handle the challenges which life throws your way. And I have some good news for you. What I know is that there are some proven strategies to support you in finding yourself again. And you don’t need to do it alone.

Hi, my name is James and I’d like to see if I can help you in reducing your anxiety so you can start smiling again — and sooner rather than later. Please contact me via the details provided above and lets get you started, you’ll be so glad you did.

Further information

Since qualifying as a Counsellor I have worked with men to overcome their challenges at regent’s university, a West London charity called centre 70 and at my business.

Prior to my  counselling training, I spent 10+ years working within the corporate sector within a variety of management roles. I have also accumulated over 15 years’ experience as a volunteer with various groups where I have worked on a range of projects including; running a mentoring service, conducting research with focus groups and organising activity events.  Some might say that this work is far removed from counselling. However, I truly believes that the skills training, structure and discipline gained during this time has made a significant contribution towards my success as a counsellor. It has allowed me to expand my view of the world, outside of the counselling room.
