Life can be exhausting

Sometimes it feels we’ve no sooner overcome one challenge before another comes to knock us down. We pick ourselves up, take a deep breath and try to move on. But that trauma doesn’t just go away. It lurks in the background, and can lead to anxiety, sleep disorders, low self-esteem, addictions, relationship difficulties and more.  Counselling and psychotherapy help you to work through past traumas and build resilience. Doing so can benefit you in so many ways, both mentally and physically.

Below are just a few of the reasons you might come to me for counselling:

  • You have anxiety, depression or OCD
  • You’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community and have experienced discrimination and internalised shame
  • You have a long-term health condition, such as MS or HIV and are working through what that means to you
  • You feel unheard or misunderstood
  • You’re a survivor of childhood abuse or domestic violence
  • You’re being brought down by grief
  • You’re tackling addictions
  • You feel like you keep making the same mistakes in relationships or at work

Jamie is a passionate therapist and compassionate person. With a relaxed manner, he always strives to hear and understand his clients deeply. Having worked alongside Jamie, I can vouch for this integrity as both a practitioner and as an individual.

Counsellor and Psychotherapist, MBACP

As Jamie's clinical supervisor I have been able to get to know his approach to working with his clients.  Jamie is professional, ethical and consistent, whilst being caring and empathetic.  He is able to challenge and adjust his approach to each individual to ensure they get the best out of their sessions with him.  I fully endorse his practice and feel confident that should you decide to work with him, you are in safe hands.

Jamie is warm, caring and intuitive. He has a natural ability to build a good rapport with people quickly, putting them at ease from the outset. You would make a good choice with Jamie as your therapist.

Toni Finlayson
Counsellor and Psychotherapist, MBACP

In July 2019 I was diagnosed HIV positive,  it was beyond scary, my world became very dark & I had no point of reference from which to navigate forward. With Jamie's support I was able to forge myself a path from the darkness, isolation & fear. He enabled me to be seen & offered me a safe place to share my feelings, thoughts & fears; I will forever be grateful for his support and guidance. Today, almost 3 years on, I have built an identity within my status that I'm proud of & maybe most surprisingly of all, I can acknowledge that HIV has enriched my life.

What happens first?

Once you contact me I will arrange an initial telephone conversation. Our first session is an opportunity for you to explore what you would like to achieve in therapy and to ask any questions. This session enables you to find out more about me and how I may be able to help you. I offer a number of sessions at a reduced rate for individuals who may not otherwise be able to afford therapy, please contact me for further details. I have a limited number of sessions available for counselling students, please get in touch if you would like to discuss this with me.

What is the difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Both counselling and psychotherapy are terms that are often used interchangeably and many practitioners use both terms to describe themselves. These terms both fall under the category of ‘talking therapies’, with counselling more often referring to short-term work dealing with present issues or a specific problem that is currently impacting an individual. Psychotherapy on the other had focuses on a deeper level and is more long term. It will explore deep-rooted psychological conflicts and works to provide insight into the impact past experiences may be contributing to the present situation.

How long does therapy last?

This is driven by yourself, and there are no definitive timeframes for therapy. Some clients with a specific problem may only need short term therapy that may last a few months. Alternatively, deep-seated problems will require a more longer-term approach. It is beneficial to have your sessions on a weekly basis to allow the therapeutic process to develop without interruption.

Are my sessions confidential?

Everything that is discussed within your session remains confidential and I abide by the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). There are exceptional circumstances when confidentiality may need to be broken - this is explained within my contract and privacy statement.

How do I know if therapy is the right fit for me?

Your initial session will give you the chance to get to know me and discuss what your hopes for therapy are, this allows you the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you. This can also be discussed at any future point within your sessions.

How do I pay for my sessions?

You can pay for your sessions in advance by bank transfer or you can pay by cash or card on the day of your appointment. For telephone and online sessions, your payment must be made prior to your appointment. You can cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment. If you do not attend without prior notice, or cancel within the 24-hour period, the full cost of the session will be charged.

Can I stop therapy at any time?

It is never advisable to just stop therapy, it is much better to plan this in advance, this ensures the therapeutic relationship ends successfully with you understanding how the process has helped you. We can discuss time frames at your first appointment.
