As a therapist, James Smith works in many different ways. While it’s true the majority of counselling and psychotherapy is talking, he will also work with drawings, guided meditations and dreams. Whatever the method, James’ role is that of an interested companion on your journey – he is there to point out things that you may not have noticed. James believes psychotherapy has two main functions: It can provide the support needed to move through crisis or a particular specific issue; It allows you time and space to get to know yourself, allowing you to develop a greater sense of well being. Psychotherapy can act as a mirror and allow you to look at what is bothering you. James offers long and short-term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals.
James began his journey to become a psychotherapist, having seen the positive benefit it gave to a close friend of his. James’ approach is integrative, with a strong belief in the connection between mind, body and soul. He firmly believes that through self discovery and understanding we learn how and where we can make choices in our lives that bring about positive change and ultimately happiness. As part of James’ training he ran a weekend workshop entitled “Experiencing Anger” and he holds a strong interest in this often misunderstood emotion.
James is an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice in Euston and Waterloo since 2006. He holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy from CCPE, and is a member of UKCP. James has also undertaken extensive training in DID – Dissociative Identification Disorder.
