The notion behind J.A.M.E.S is to support clients on their therapeutic Journey, with Acceptance and Mindful Emotional Support. In 2012 James Rule died by suicide at the age of 22. His intelligence and creative mind was one of a kind, and with the support of his family it is my honour to be able to name this space after him.

James has been an integral and important part of my own journey in encouraging talking therapies to all and to reduce the stigma of counselling and mental health support. It is important to remember when seeking counselling that you are not alone. Many people feel hesitant to discuss their struggles, however seeking professional help with someone you therapeutically connect with could be the start of living a more emotionally peaceful life.

The unfinished image of the apple blossom which appears in the background is an image drawn by James; a poignant reminder that your personal journey can be beautiful even at it’s most vulnerable.
