James is a Mindfulness Teacher & Trainee Psychotherapist specialising in the treatment of stress and anxiety disorders, depression, bereavement, trauma and other life challenges
Consulting from a private practice in Fulham and Chelsea in London, James uses a combination of mindfulness-based interventions and psychotherapy as a gateway to change, teaching clients how to come into relationship with their own thoughts, feelings and habitual behaviours rather than wrestle with them. This creates the conditions for emotional wisdom, growth and wellbeing.
He is currently studying for a Post Qualification Masters (PQMA) in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Approaches at the Karuna Institute and is registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) as a trainee psychotherapist working towards accreditation.
Previously, James trained through the CPD programme in Mindfulness Based Approaches at the Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice, Bangor University, and has completed Mindfulness Teacher Training Levels 1 & 2. He also has a degree in Philosophy from York University, a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Cass Business School and 20 years experience in the advertising industry.
