I have over 15 years of experience of working as a counsellor with adults, young people, adolescents and children. I work face to face as well as on-line. I believe that you have the answers to your difficulties and that I as your therapist will provide a safe space to discuss your thoughts, feelings and emotions with the aim of gaining insight and understanding so that you may live a happier and more authentic life. Sometimes people come to therapy with specific difficulties like, anxiety, depression, addiction, low self esteem and others come with a more generalised feeling of discontent. I am here to listen.

My aim is to provide a confidential space where you can feel comfortable to talk about your difficulties. I offer therapy for different types of problems (low self esteem, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, OCD, trauma, Complex PTSD, social anxiety, worries, anger, sleep etc) to individuals and couples. I consider therapy as a journey that will help you to get to know yourself better with the aim to improve your quality of life. I like adapting my way of working according to each individual needs as I believe that everyone is unique.

Hello , I am James, my website is www.psychotherapynow.co.uk. I have worked for 25 years as a psychotherapist in central London.

I offer counselling to people who are in some sort of transition in their lives. Often people come to me when they're feeling stuck, isolated or low. I often work with people in their twenties, thirties and forties who are facing some sort of mid-life transition. You might be weighing up what is important to you, and how to take the next steps in your life. I work with people who are often from marginalised groups, for example, LGBTQ+ people and/or people from Black and ethnic minorities. You might want to find out a way to live your life that feels authentic and unblock energy to achieve your goals.

My aim is to build a space of trust where you can feel confident in bringing out the parts of yourself that you may have had difficulty sharing before. My aim is always to help you bring about positive, lasting change to your life.

It's ironic that a large part of psychotherapeutic work is around trying to convince people that their perceived 'abnormal' feelings and behaviours are a completely 'normal' reaction to a set of, often very difficult life circumstances. For instance, why wouldn't someone have a generalised feeling of persistent anxiety and low mood, when they have to live in what seems like a crazy and confusing world? We can work toward a more accepting and benevolent view of ourselves, exploring who you truly are and where you might truly want to go in life, without the harsh inner voices of the past.

Believing in the uniqueness of each person and their circumstances at any one moment in time, I am committed to a pluralistic approach which acknowledges and values the notion that what might work in one session, might not be successful in another, and that what might be appropriate for one client, might feel uncomfortable for someone else. Our relationship will, therefore, be based on the premise that your therapy will be the outcome of the collaboration between you and I, and will reflect your shifting needs within sessions, and from one session to another, as together we travel beyond the boundary of your previous thoughts.

I offer one-to-one psychotherapy in London Bridge/Borough. I work in a way that emphasises collaborating with clients to develop a pathway towards making meaningful and lasting positive change and growth. Your aims may be specific: for instance that you wish to work on a specific situation or setting in which you feel you are struggling; you may have a general sense that something in your life does not feel right, or you may feel you are somewhere in between these two examples. The main purpose of therapy is to help you move towards living the life you want to live and feel most at home in.

I understand that reaching out for support can evoke much anxiety. I am here to work at your pace and with your agenda. I have learned that our reaction to challenges in our adult lives can often be related to our childhood experiences. Within our partnership we will be able to work through childhood trauma, attachment and how they may impact on your current mental health. My hope is that you will be able to show your own commitment to the process. My belief is that the level of commitment you show towards your therapy will plant the seeds of your own growth and development. The outcome being invaluable.

How do I work? I provide an open, non-judgemental space for you to explore and make sense of your issues, to help you move forward in life to the place you want to be. There are roughly three stages: Stage 1: Explore the problem in an empathetic, non-judgemental environment. Stage 2: Clarify the key patterns and themes and make sense of some of the contradictions; put it all into context and gain insight into yourself and your life, and how and why the same problems keep coming up. Stage 3: Use this insight to start moving towards a richer, more pleasurable life.

I am an integrative practitioner which means that my practice is influenced by more than one approach. In my work I focus on adapting the best-suited approach to your individual needs. This might entail helping you find coping strategies to address specific symptoms or assisting you to increase understanding of yourself and your relationships with others. I am also using DIT model (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy) which is a 16 sessions time limited therapy aiming to identify and change unhelpful patterns affecting your important relationships and professional achievements.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
