About James

I operate in London (SW7 & SW5), Tunbridge Wells and online. 

I am a therapist, coach and wellbeing consultant. My friends joke that I wear many “hats” which is true I do and I am very grateful I get the opportunity to do so.

I am an addictions, eating disorder and compulsive behaviour specialist. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS accred), an advanced member of Addiction Professionals registration body, a senior member of the Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists & Hypnotherapists (SMACCPH), a member of the International Stress Management Association (MISMA) and the Complex Trauma Institute.

I work with individuals on a number of issues such as Alcoholism, drug addiction, sex addiction & compulsive sexual behaviour, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, codependence and gambling to name a few.

I also work with:

Anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, depression, trauma, PTSD & CPTSD self Harm, low self esteem, low self confidence, loneliness, burnout, stress, stress management & stress prevention, ADHD, personality disorders (BPD), relationships and couples.

I offer a range of services from 1:1 and group counselling/coaching sessions to workshops and wellbeing awareness sessions in both private and corporate settings.

I trained at Richmond College as an integrative therapist and the National Centre for Eating Disorders as a Master Practitioner. I am strongly informed by 12 step philosophy and I help clients to look after their mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health to thrive in life. I describe myself as a pluralistic therapist using a number of different therapeutic models to best suit each client’s needs in an integrative manner such as ACT, CBT, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis & inner child work, Person Centred, Humanistic, Motivational interviewing and positive psychology to name a few. The work I do means I work on my own as well as being part of a team which I thoroughly enjoy!

Since 2017 I have drawn on my own personal and professional experience to support those I work with. I have a holistic view of mental health and wellbeing. I work with clients on the issues they present with as well explore their mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health as a whole. I work collaboratively with my clients using both counselling and coaching skills to help promote positive, lasting change.

As well as my private practice I work with:
