Hello, my name is Jason and I'm passionate about working with people to help them gain a deeper understanding of themselves and make lasting change. I have experience of therapeutically collaborating with adults and children (qualified teacher) in a variety of contexts - working with everything from work stress to complex trauma. I am passionate about supporting people to be the best version of themselves!
In starting the process of therapy, you are enabling the possibility of powerful, self-directed change. This could be in relation to coping and working with tricky emotional states such as anxiety, depression and anger or, just to work on building healthier relationship dynamics. You might also be going through a tough period due to the external pressures/consequences of modern life. In any case, the purpose of psychotherapy is to work collaboratively in order to support the client to live more meaningfully and have more control. All of which leads to greater contentment and happiness!
I provide a warm, non-judgemental and motivational space from which to explore. An individualised (pluralistic) approach is adopted to help provide the best support, whilst still being rigorous and evidence-based in approach.
Please get in touch if you'd like to know more and feel free to make an enquiry, generally.

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.

I work as an integrative therapist, applying psychological models but doing so in a compassion-focused way. This involves turning towards our difficulties and having the motivation to do what's helpful to resolve the struggles. The whole approach is based on a three part emotional system, rooted in evolutionary neuroscience. To mindfully work with our suffering enables long lasting change to become reality.
