James has experience of offering a variety of assessments, intervention and therapy to a range of individuals, families and groups. James offers clinical psychology services to people experiencing any emotional, relational and health difficulties in their lives. Examples include distress, sadness, low mood, anxiety, traumatic experiences, thoughts of self harm or suicide, relational conflict and body concerns.

James is also a skilled supervisor for professionals seeking some time and space to reflect on their clinical work.
The service I provide respects and celebrates the diversity of human experience, with the aim of helping people to move towards meaningful change in their lives. In essence, to help create a life that people want to live.
