James Chapman MBACP (Accred.) MSc
I offer therapy to both individuals and couples. I aim to provide you a safe, non judgmental and confidential space to explore whatever it is you are struggling with at your own pace. I believe that through exploration of your life experiences, it is possible to make changes when sometimes it can feel as though there is no hope. It takes a great deal of courage to seek out help and I believe that times of despair or crisis also provide significant opportunity for growth. So be it anxiety, depression or any other issue you would like to share, please send me an email or call and we can discuss arranging an initial appointment. We can then discuss how you would like to go forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my MSc in Therapeutic Counselling in 2015 and am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also hold a PG Diploma in Transpersonal Couple Counselling (2018). I have over 10 years experience in various different roles within residential, community and NHS mental health services. This work has made me experienced in working with many different issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement. More recently I have been working for a domestic violence charity. I am also trained to see couples and am also accredited with the Foundation for Infant Loss.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
