Since 1997, Jamie has worked with adults and young people in a variety of different settings including private one-to-one therapy, group therapy, family work, addiction treatment, in a Harley Street clinic, an NHS commissioned mental health ward, a sexual abuse project and in prisons, among other contexts.
Jamie uses his expertise to support clients from all walks of life to gain a better understanding of themselves and the issues they face, with the aim of raising awareness. This can help to create more choice and freedom in how clients respond to whatever appears challenging for them.
Jamie uses an integrative approach to counselling. This means that he draws upon a range of techniques and theoretical perspectives to tailor the therapy, depending on the issues that emerge and the impact these can have on a person. Approaches he uses includes CBT, Humanistic, psychodynamics and mindfulness among others.
Jamie believes that through forming a trusting therapeutic relationship, it’s possible to create the right conditions whereby the client is able to safely explore their issues and to connect with their own capacity for self-healing, in order to move forwards.
Throughout his career, Jamie has been energised by seeing the benefits and changes that therapy can bring people.
Jamie is passionate about supporting people from all backgrounds to find their way forwards and his open-minded, non-judgmental and warm approach is valued by his clients.
