About me

"Now available On-Line (Zoom, Skype & WhatsApp), by Telephone and in person Via "Walk & Talk"  in The Park"

My name is Jason and I am a Professional, Full Time, Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I am now available Mon-Fri midday to 9pm via in-Person Via "Walk & Talk in The Park", WhatsApp, Telephone, Zoom and Skype"

I work in accordance with a code of ethics, which means you will receive professional, confidential robust and non judgmental support.

Every so often it's useful to speak to someone who is unbiased and will help you find and implement a solution going forwards, that's why I offer non judgmental and confidential counselling to Men, Women, Couples and Young People from all walks of life and from many differing circumstances.

During my time as a counsellor, I have supported people with an array of personal issues ranging from anxiety, anger, relationship issues, bereavement and depression to name but a few.

During my life I have faced many Hurdles and Challenges, some have been easy to tackle, others have knocked me for six, what I have realised is that these experiences have put me in a unique position to understand what you are going through.

In the past I have worked with clients with learning and physical disabilities, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD and dyslexia.

I offer a free no obligation initial 20 minute on line meeting or telephone chat where we can discuss your unique circumstance and look at ways to go forward, please feel free to contact me using the contact form, alternatively if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

I genuinely look forwards to hearing from you.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Men Don't Talk Org Men's Support Group

Men are far less likely to seek medical support for a mental health problem than women, new figures reveal.

A survey commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found that not only are men far less likely than women to seek professional support, they are also less likely to disclose a mental health problem to friends and family.

The YouGov survey, the largest of its kind, polling more than 2,500 people who have had mental health problems, showed 28% of men admitted that they had not sought medical help, compared with 19% of women.

The survey found that a third of women, compared with a quarter of men, had told friends or family about their mental health problem within a month of it arising. More than a third of men, compared with a quarter of women, either waited more than two years or chose never to tell friends or family about their problem.

Men have also the highest rates of suicide, a staggering 84 per week on average, that's 12 a day, or 1 every 2 hours........

and that to me is unacceptable,

I therefore founded "MenDontTalk.Org"

Men Don't Talk is a.....

  • On line information sharing website, aimed to help men receive the information they need.
  • Has a peer support website where men can chat to other men in who have been through the same or similar experiences.
  • Conducts online seminars and presentations aimed at educating men in mental health related issues.
  • Conducts workshops where Men can address their issues without fear of ridicule.
  • Attends debates & forums to highlight the effects of Male Mental health issues and the silence of men.
  • I am The Founding Admin Member of "The Betterman Community" which is a Facebook group which aims to promote Men to Support Other Men - www.facebook.com/groups/bettermancommunity/
  • Weekend Retreats. (Presently Unavailable)
