About me:

James holds a Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Dublin Counselling and Therapy Centre, accredited through Northampton University, and is an accredited member of I.A.C.P. James works from a person-centred humanistic approach and believes in creating a safe, supportive, non-judgmental, and confidential space in which clients can heal and grow.

James is a firm believer in person-centred therapy, which gives the client control of the content, speed, and depth of work in each session. He believes that through creating a collaborative relationship with the client, they can work together to best understand the needs of the client. James believes that the therapeutic relationship is a key foundation for the client's personal healing and growth.

James has a passion for understanding what makes people think and act the way we do. By providing a safe and supportive space, James provides the client with the opportunity to explore, understand, and work through their past or present issues. James believes that through working to understand what drives our thoughts and behaviours we can learn to accept, heal, and move forward in our lives.

Having been diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age, James has had personal experience working through and dealing with many negative thought patterns associated with dyslexia. From working to overcome these thought patterns, James has developed a keen interest in working with people who have learning needs or intellectual disabilities.

Throughout his work, James has helped clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, anger management, stress, relationship issues, sexuality, gender identity, eating disorders, control issues, self-harm, suicidal ideation, suicide bereavement, childhood abuse (sexual, emotional, physical), self-esteem, isolation and loneliness.
