About me

Dr James Urquhart is a TRAUMA COUNSELLING SPECIALIST. I work simply and effectively combining brief psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy with proven anxiety-reducing techniques (EMDR and CBT) to help ensure your road back to health.The effects of emotional shock, worrying all the time, feeling sad, and depression related to a deeply distressing experience can be wearing. However, the weight of worry can be relieved by expert analytic counselling, which works to ease the pain and distress of feeling unable to cope with life.


Relationship and family issues; generalised anxiety disorder; panic disorder; phobias; acute and chronic trauma; PTSD; depression; couples therapy; psychosexual therapy; physical, sexual and emotional abuse; work-related stress; bereavement; eating  disorders.
