Thomasin James, BA, MA, Registered MBACP.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Thomasin and I am a fully-qualified psychotherapist, offering flexible counselling options to meet your current mental healthcare needs. I see clients at my Leicestershire practice, or outdoors via my 'walk and talk' service, or online from the comfort of their own home.
As a psychodynamic counsellor, I am particularly interested in getting to know you as your true self, helping you to work through current issues and past experiences in a way that allows you to feel accepted, listened to and able to move on. I offer clients a safe, welcoming, confidential space in which to discuss their mental health.
I started in private practice during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, and am increasingly focused on how covid-19 is impacting on our physical and mental health. I believe it has never been more important to talk to someone about how you feel. I offer flexible, covid-secure options so you can talk to a fully-qualified psychotherapist in-person, outdoors or online. In particular, my 'walk and talk' service means clients can talk whilst walking in nature: something that many people find highly therapeutic.

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.
