About me

My name is Professor James Barnes and I am an experienced Chartered Psychologist offering counselling and psychotherapy to adults. I have 20 years experience of working in clinical practise, where I offer a safe and confidential service. Although I work with a wide variety of psychological distress, my special interest is anxiety, trauma work and challenges and difficulties in relationships. I have worked with these and other difficulties in different modalities and techniques. I specialise in home visits for individual with anxiety issues as well as Skype and telephone counselling.

I am trained to Doctoral level in a variety of therapeutic models including Coaching based models, Psychodynamic and EMDR Therapy. I have an expert understanding of these models with rigorous past and ongoing experience that allows me to work with you in a way that suits your particular needs. I aim to work with my clients in a safe and supportive environment that is not based on assumptions about you or your difficulty.

I am a qualified counsellor and a Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS) and the The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) with experience in both short and long-term counselling and in both one-to-one and couples counselling. I am a going researcher in the field of Psychology which at present has culminated in 2 Books, 15 book chapters and over 50 peer reviewed articles.

After many years in London, I now work at The Practice MK, which is easy to get to and has ample parking. Please get in touch to book an appointment.
