Counselling & Psychotherapy
You may be considering counselling and psychotherapy because you are experiencing difficulties in your life related to your past or present, are feeling stuck, seeking new direction and change or wish to develop greater awareness of yourself and more vitality in life.
I offer a warm and confidential space to listen and support you to explore, reflect and understand your feelings and experiences. The space we create together can enable the exploration of a range of emotions and experiences that can be challenging but can equally involve humour and laughter and lead to insight, understanding, growth and change.
How I work
Hi, my name is Jamie. I am a qualified therapist accredited by the Professional Standards Authority and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer one-to-one and online, short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy in North Finchley, North London. I have worked with adults and young people within both educational and therapeutic settings for over fifteen years. I work mindfully of cultural diversity, beliefs and values and am experienced working with a broad range of areas including:
anxiety and panic
family and relationship difficulties
the experience of growing up in the care system
identity, sexuality, gender and sexual relationship diversity
loss and bereavement
disability, long-term health and neurodiversity (autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and other specific learning differences)
My approach is relational and non-judgemental as I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is based on trust and honesty. Most importantly the way I work begins with listening. I am passionate about getting to know and understand those I work with to fully understand the difficulties they are experiencing and the goals they hope to achieve.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on a broad range approaches informed by different theoretical and practice traditions in the field of therapy including humanistic, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioural (CBT) and body-oriented approaches to reflect your individual needs. I work relationally, which means I believe exploring the relationship between us is an important part of our therapy as a means to support you to explore challenges you may be experiencing.
You can expect a friendly, warm and confidential environment when working with me. My aim is to support you to explore the relationship between your past and present, and the integration of thoughts, feelings, physical and bodily experience. I will be honest, reflective, open, and curious in our work. Together we will create a space for you to look in and experience yourself, then gather the strength to make changes that you hope for and achieve greater vitality and meaning in life.
