Then I may be able to help.

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, Skype, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, Telephone and Zoom."

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, I look forwards to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
  • Run fortnightly Men's support group meeting. (Presently Unavailable)
  • Run Weekend Retreats. (Presently Unavailable)

Please visit WWW.MenDonttalk.Org and look at the great work we do, and please share out page as you feel relevant.

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.
