Jason Middleton MSc, PgDIP, MBACP
I offer short and long-term counselling & psychotherapy with a therapeutic approach recognised as Transpersonal Psychotherapy. Transpersonal psychotherapy differs from clinical mind-centred therapies and is a powerful therapeutic approach that works with what we all possess; a mind, a body and a soul (or spirit), i.e. our “Psychology”.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy is a humanistic ‘you-centred’ approach and values equally all aspects of our 'being'. Unlike most forms of psychotherapy that concentrate on improving mental health alone; transpersonal psychotherapy takes an equally thorough, yet more holistic approach in that it considers a much wider scope of mental, physical, spiritual, social, emotional, creative and intellectual needs; in equal merit, in order to support a client to reach a place of wholeness, balance, self-empowerment and individuation. Client work is an exploration of the ego-mind-body-soul dynamics and their influence on mental, emotional, physical and relational health and functioning.
All aspects of ‘self’ need to be recognised explored and worked with if we are to heal deep issues and embrace who we are; if we are to live a life of more balance, wholeness and authenticity in order to promote healthier relationships with those we connect with and also a healthier relationship with our self. Such an approach may also consider existential implications such as the meaning and purpose of one’s existence; in addition to how societal conditions and pressures such as eco-anxiety, climate distress and expectations surrounding gender imposed stereotyping of roles, duties and obligations may affect one’s overall wellbeing.
Working collaboratively, we talk about what’s happening in your life and any changes you might want to make in order to heal and expand the quality of your consciousness and 'being'; what might need to happen for you to feel more empowered to do this and ways to support and promote your ongoing emotional and holistic health and well-being.
As a Registered Member of the BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in counselling and psychotherapy and as such I’m insured and receive regular professional supervision.
It’s important we both feel comfortable with each other and if you would like to contact me, we can talk about what brings you to counselling and what you hope to achieve. I’ll answer as best I can any questions you may have ‘about me’ and we can decide if working together is going to be helpful for you. I can be contacted confidentially and without obligation via email to discuss what you would like to do next.

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.
