1. “I would highly recommend James as a psychotherapist. He helped us immensely to cope and manage with my daughter’s OCD and anxiety. We worked with James to understand the diagnosis, and our sessions provided us with the tools needed to be able to offer support to our daughter, and in turn overcome the problems which led to her OCD. James challenged her and encouraged her to overcome her fears, and with his help she was able to come out the other side. We are forever grateful for his help, and we both count James as the starting point in her recovery”.

2. “Having an independent, professional psychotherapist like James to speak to, in a non-judgmental way, helped me to look at why I react / behave the way I did. James helped me to recognise, understand and manage triggers. Am now able to cope with issues and see a way of living with things I can’t change and changing things I can change. I finally feel lighter, carefree and happy. Wish I had have met him years ago”

3. I have had just 2 sessions so far with James doing EMDR therapy and I have found it has made good change in me so far because I would have alot to get through because of my past but I have noticed a bit of change within me in the short space of time. It’s my first time doing this type of Therapy. James is very good at what he does and is so attentive and on the ball with the Therapy, very professional :)  I look forward to having more sessions in the near future as I know they are going to
really help me
