About me

Hi I'm James and thanks for taking the time to view my bio. For the past nine years I have worked as a drug and alcohol professional and have met and worked with clients from vastly different backgrounds and life experiences.

In a changing world I firmly believe that it is of vital importance that i take the time to learn and update my own training and knowledge base so as to offer the best possible service for my clients.

Throughout my professional life I have seen the positive effects that counselling can have. The ability to discuss personal problems and issues in a judgemental and safe environment can help people to come to terms with their situations and provide much needed clarity in times of darkness and confusion.

I firmly believe that counselling should be as open and available to as many people as possible and it is for that reason that I have attempted to keep my fees to a minimum and to also offer an on-line counselling service.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work to the BACP ethical framework.
