About me

Welcome, I’m Jamie. I work with clients online, by telephone and face-to-face (indoors and outdoors). I offer a free 30 minute consultation so that we can get a sense of what it might feel like to work together. I don't currently have space and should know more in June about my availability.

It seems to me that much of our suffering in life comes from the difficult experiences we have and how they separate us from ourselves and others and from being able to fully listen to our body, mind, emotions and spirit and give them voice. If this has been your experience, you may feel lost, alone and unsure where to turn for help. Perhaps the only way it feels like you can manage is to keep busy and disconnect from yourself. This was my experience growing up and through my working life and my experiences of finding my way home to myself is fundamental in how I work with others to support them.

Whatever has brought you here, I can offer you a space where you are accepted for who you are and where your body, mind, emotions and spirit can have time and space to be heard. I’m here to help you find your way back to yourself. I do this through listening and coming alongside you to really understand what you are going through so that you can process and work through things that have perhaps become stuck. I also do this using mindfulness to help you become more aware of what is going on in your experience and the habits that cause unnecessary suffering. I see you as a whole person; body, mind, emotions and spirit.

I have experience supporting people going through different things such as depression, anxiety, mental health difficulties, trauma, physical health difficulties, isolation, relationship problems, work transitions. I have more specialist experience and training in bereavement. I offer a free 30 minute consultation because I feel it’s important that you experience what it might feel like to work together, and it also gives you the opportunity to talk about what is going on for you and ask any questions you might have about how we can work together.

You are really welcome to get in touch to find out more. I will always respond to emails and aim to do this within a week, please check your spam or junk email folder as replies may be there.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Disabled parking can be booked in advance of your session and it is a wheelchair accessible room.
