The easing of restrictions:
Hello my name is Jamie and I work as a qualified counsellor offering therapeutic support in the Kirklees and Calderdale surrounding areas.
Due to the easing of restrictions I am pleased to inform you I can now resume face to face appointments should you prefer. I understand that privacy is important and therefore the space provided is in line with current guidelines to ensure total protection and safeness.
For those who prefer meeting in person, I offer my time at £40 per session. If, for those of you who prefer virtual appointments, I am offering both telephone and video chats at the reduced fee of £30 per therapeutic hour.
I provide a confidential counselling practice in a calm and safe environment and offer appointments in the morning, afternoon, evening and weekend to suit your commitments.
Having trained and worked as a qualified counsellor over a number of years, I have experience and special interests in a range of areas. My experience is varied and includes working with adults, young people and children in a number of settings to help improve both mental and emotional wellbeing. Some of the key areas I work with are, for example, anger, anxiety, confidence issues, low self-esteem, depression, sleep disturbance, relationship problems (including parental/marital), bullying, loneliness, domestic violence, adult and child trauma, rape, which are just a few.
In addition, I have worked as a counsellor in various environments in West Yorkshires and as a result have developed special interests and experience of working within, for example, the LGBTQ sector - both adults and youth, drug and alcohol dependency, persons living with and those that are affected by HIV and mental health issues.

* Acceptance, patience and understanding
* A warm and non-judgmental space for you to share your concerns
* A safe and confidential space to help you gain insight which may lead to change and an increase in confidence and self-esteem.
* An insured and professional counselling service

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
