About me

Hi I'm James and thanks for taking the time to read a little about me.

I have worked within the drug and alcohol addiction field for over twelve years. As a result, I have witnessed first-hand the damage to not only people struggling with addiction, but also their loved ones. I aim to assist you in overcoming your struggles and finding a suitable path to move forward. I also work within a high school setting, offering life advice to a hand picked selection of students. Whilst undergoing my counselling training I also worked with 16-25 year olds living in supported accommodation for a number of years. The benefit of my experience is I have an honest insight into how teenagers are reacting to the stresses around them.

I'm based in Fleetwood, England and am available to meet for face to face counselling sessions or, if you live further away or prefer to meet me from the comfort of your home, I'm able to see clients online.

I don't profess to own a magic wand but I do honestly believe that discussing problems in confidence and in the safety and comfort of your own home can help.

Whilst my background has been primarily working with people presenting with substance misuse problems I have also dealt with those having difficulties with relationships, housing, family problems and I am keen to stress that I am happy to work with anyone and any issues.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work to the BACP ethical framework.

I offer a free initial telephone or 30 minute face to face consultation so if you have any questions or concerns please feel for to get in contact. Or, if prefer, drop me an email and I'll aim to get back to you as soon as possible and certainly within the next 24 hours.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
