About me

Hello,my name is James Ward and I offer accessible counselling at an affordable price. I am a Person Centred Counsellor based in the Old Swan area of Liverpool. I do Monday mornings,afternoons and evening appointments aswell as weekends in the Old Swan clinic. There is free parking available all around the clinic.

I am a warm, genuine, real and non-judgemental person which are the attributes needed when counselling clients using the Person Centred approach. I feel I form bonds and rapports with both individual and couples clients quite easily and I help people help themselves move forward in their lives on a regular basis.

I have worked with many diverse groups of clients with many diverse sets of presenting issues whilst working as a counsellor both in the NHS and in my own private practice, these being anxiety,divorce and relationship breakdown, gambling addiction,cocaine addiction(all drug addiction),alchohol addiction, sexual and mental abuse, anger management, bullying and harassment, stress , depression, social anxiety,OCD.etc. I feel that I can help clients help themselves move forward with any issues they may have.

Sometimes clients need someone to talk to that they can trust,away from family members or friends. Counselling is a way to gain a greater understanding of issues they may have or indeed find new resolutions or different perspectives to these issues.

Sometimes clients need to offload feelings and emotions they are carrying around with them or sometimes life is becoming too much for them and they are struggling to cope, counselling can help with this and make the client feel lighter when they leave and more healthy.

If you would like counselling for an issue/s or need any advice relating to counselling or what to expect then please dont hesitate to ask me either by phone or by email.

also when counselling ends the door is always open to return in the future if you need to.
