Jamie Calder Therapeutic Counsellor BACP Reg.
I am a registered counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and have my own private practice. I provide a Trauma Informed, Person Centred service and take a flexible approach integrating therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy depending on what may be most helpful in promoting recovery and healing.
I have a background working as a Mental Health Nurse with over Ten years experience working with people with a wide range of mental health difficulties. At the heart of my work and what makes it so worthwhile is the relationship I have with the people that I help.
Having sought help myself for depression and anxiety which I discovered through therapy had its roots in trauma I fully appreciate the courage that it takes to seek help when you may be at your most vulnerable. I also know from experience that it is possible to resolve what needs to be resolved.
I have learnt that at the source of many of our difficulties is a disconnection within ourselves. The good news is we can reconnect and when fully connected health and wellbeing will naturally follow. In essence I see my job as a counsellor as helping people to connect compassionately to their feelings, emotions, desires and values and live a life authentically true to themselves.
If you feel drawn to counselling as something that may help you then please get in touch.
