James Carver ,BA(Hons), MBACP (Accred), UKRCP Reg
Face to face or online you choose. With over twelve years of successful counselling practice and experience, my aim is to increase your sense of personal choice and to help you achieve a richer sense of connection with yourself and others. I have experience in working many ways from face to face, telephone or on-line Skype, Whatsapp, Zoom or Facetime.
My extended 5 years of training in integrative counselling allows me to use a wide range of theory, skills and tools tailored to your personal needs. The main approaches I integrate are Person-Centred, CBT, Psychodynamic. I also use EMDR Therapy which helps with trauma and unprocessed memories.
Throughout my professional career I have successfully given support to many clients with a wide range of difficulties, such as anger management, depression, anxiety work related stress and relationship issues.
During our work together 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 will show you various tools to increase your personal growth and development.
Over the years I have felt privileged that my clients have shared their difficulties with me and allowed me to help them to achieve their goals. Please see the testimonies on my web site.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
