James Hartley - Counsellor, Therapist & Mindfulness Trainer
I have an established professional career spanning many years and have won awards for my work supporting health and wellbeing in NHS commissioned services, and privately via ONE MIND.
- Your difficulties are valid, important and deserve support
- Change can happen and things can get better
I have delivered over a thousand sessions of therapy and mindfulness to people from all walks of life, all over the world, helping them find calm, joy, and a sense of purpose and freedom.
The most common feedback I receive from people I work with is that I am:
- Genuine and authentic
- Patient and kind
- Relateable and offer ‘real-world’ support
This is because I work from the following principles
The bedrock of any therapy is formed by providing you with a person you can trust. Without trust therapy is unsuccessful.
Every person is born unique and their individuality deserves not just be acknowledged but, encouraged and celebrated.
The act of being unconditionally caring puts your needs first by being completely in your corner without an agenda.
Cultivating calm helps us all feel safe and helps us work with suffering creatively. Calm is not passive but allows us to challenge the difficulties we face. It’s also a welcome respite from pain.

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).
