My name is Ann-Marie James and I am a professional psychotherapist & counsellor in private practice in Reading, Berkshire. If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy I welcome you to read the information provided within this site.

As a therapist I believe in the importance of self-understanding and self-care. Counselling can assist you in dealing with stress, anxiety, loss, depression, relationship challenges, work challenges, and many other aspects of life that can cause distress. Counselling can assist you with learning about yourself, resolving difficult emotions, developing skills for relationships and career, dealing with loss or bereavement, facing addiction, healing trauma, changing negative behaviours, and improving your quality of life.

I am an integrative counsellor & psychotherapist. I trained in America and am experienced in working with adults dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, mind-body disturbances, and mental illness and much more. I am also trained in family therapy and specialise in couples / relationship therapy.

I am a member of and accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics and Good Practice. Any information as relates to you and the process of counselling and psychotherapy is strictly confidential.
