Jamie Crabb MBACP, MA, PG Dip, BA (Hons.)
Hi, my name is Jamie. I offer one-to-one, short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy in North London. I have worked with adults and young people within both educational and therapeutic settings for over fifteen years. I offer a warm and confidential space to listen and support you to explore, reflect and understand your feelings and experiences. The space we create together can enable the exploration of a range of emotions and experiences that can be challenging but can equally involve humour and laughter and lead to insight, understanding, growth and change.
I am experienced working with a broad range of areas including:
- anxiety and panic
- body issues
- sexuality and identity
- family and relationship difficulties
- loss and bereavement
- the experience of growing up in foster care
I work with clients from diverse backgrounds mindful of culture, beliefs and values and gender, sexual and relationship diversity. I have substantial experience working with disability, unseen medical conditions and neurodiversity (autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and other specific learning differences) and diagnosed mental health conditions.
My approach is non-judgemental as I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is based on trust and honesty. Most importantly the way I work begins with listening. I am passionate about getting to know and understand the individuals I work with to fully understand the difficulties they are experiencing and the goals they hope to achieve.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on a broad range approaches informed by different theoretical and practice traditions in the field of therapy including humanistic, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioural (CBT) and body-oriented approaches to reflect your individual needs. I work relationally, which means I believe exploring the relationship between us is an important part of our therapy as a means to support you to explore challenges you may be experiencing.
You can expect a friendly, warm and confidential environment when working with me. My aim is to support you to explore the relationship between your past and present, and the integration of thoughts, feelings, physical and bodily experience. I will be honest, reflective, open, and curious in our work. Together we will create a space for you to look in and experience yourself, then gather the strength to make changes that you hope for and achieve greater vitality and meaning in life.

You are welcome to contact me for a free, no obligation telephone conversation to explore what brings you to therapy, ask any questions you may have. 50-minute initial consultation sessions are at a reduced fee of £30. During this session, we explore what brings you to therapy and we can get a sense if the relationship 'feels right' and you feel comfortable working with me. Regular counselling and psychotherapy sessions are £60 per session for 50-minutes at the same time each week. Payment can be made by debit card or in cash.
I offer some concessions based on your employment status, financial circumstances, availability and personal circumstances. We can discuss this further if you choose to make contact or meet.
