Nathan Jones BA Hons, MSc CBT
Are you looking for a therapist who has been in your shoes? Someone who has felt the pain and anguish of addiction? Someone who won't judge and has the tools to help you recover from your own alcohol, drug, gambling or sex addiction?
I have struggled with substance and behavioural addictions from my late teens until early 30’s. Over ten years in the absolute chaos, anguish and turmoil of addiction. Personal relationships destroyed; finances decimated; career in jeopardy, were the subsequent consequences of my destructive behaviours. on August 1st 2012, I finally admitted defeat and was admitted to the Priory Hospital in Altrincham.
I can honestly say that my 28 day spell in residential treatment saved my life. I learnt that addiction was a disease, an illness, that left untreated, had the power to kill. It was not a lack of willpower or moral deficiency as I had previously thought. During my recovery, it struck me like a bolt of lightning, that I could use all my past pain and experience of addiction and help other people to recover.
In 2018, I obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Counselling and have recently acquired a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches such as: Person-Centred Therapy, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming -NLP and Twelve Step Facilitation.
I believe that my past is my greatest assest.
My experience enables me to develop strong therapeutic relationships and really connect with clients on an empathic level. I specialise in the treatment of substance and behavioural addictions.
It is my passion in life to help other people and if you are struggling with an addiction, it would be an honour and privilege to be of service to you. Don’t continue to be a slave to your addiction – there is an answer.
Please feel free to contact me, if you would like a discussion before you decide to commit to therapy.

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.
