About me

Does this sound like you?

  • You go from being ok at one moment too exploding with anger in the next
  • You’ve been up all night because your worried about everything going wrong
  • Exhausted, you stumble through another grey day. Surely there is more to life than this?
  • Your having an unending series of blow-ups with the people you care about most
  • You know that trying to handle things by yourself is just making things worse

The good news is … there are things that you can do, and having therapy with an experienced Counsellor can be the key to creating life long change.

Hi, my name is James Harris and I have a special interest in working with men. I’ve collaborated with 100’s of male clients over the years. Here are just a few of the benefits my guys have told me they’ve experienced during our work together.

  • Bouncing out of bed with a smile on their face, ready to take on the day
  • Tools to keep their cool during stressful situations
  • Opening up more with partners, family members and friends
  • Gaining the confidence to find a partner for the first time, make a much needed career change or start a hobby
  • Finding a better work-life balance

From working with my guys I’ve learned a thing or two about what its like considering therapy for the first-time. Sometimes, my clients will be thinking to themselves:

  • What if I’m judged as weak, helpless, not good enough, a failure?
  • I don’t like talking about myself and I certainly don’t want to took about how I’m feeling
  • Thing’s aunt too bad right now, perhaps if I keep quiet they’ll get better … eventually...

Your concerns are perfectly normal and yet I’m confident that you’ll soon discover that sharing a problem with me takes a huge weight off your shoulders.

My aim is to support you in the development of your mental & emotional strength, so that you have more of yourself to take on life’s challenges with flexibility, confidence and ease.

Call me today for a free 15 minute chat where you can ask the questions that need to be asked. Alternatively, you can drop me an email and together we’ll get started.
