My name is James Scurry and I’m a UKCP-registered trainee psychotherapist currently completing the clinical year of a Master of Mindfulness-based psychotherapy at The Karuna Institute.
I believe that all of us go through mental and emotional distress at some point in our lives, but with the right support the process can be a transformative, and even a rewarding experience. Whether it be anxiety, depression, a bereavement or difficulties stemming from something more complex, ultimately symptoms of distress are rooted in the things we go through in ours lives. It’s not a question of what’s wrong, but rather a question of what’s happened.
By working to understand how these experiences have shaped and affected us, we can begin to process and move beyond our emotional pain.
I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental and inclusive therapeutic space where my clients can delve deeper into what’s really going on below the surface.
I grew up in Melbourne in Australia so also have a strong connection to nature and the beach. Like many people psychotherapy is a second career which I came to having gone through my own difficult period working as a senior television producer in the pressure of a newsroom. I have lived in London for ten years and currently live in Chiswick with my partner and our hungarian vizsla called Lola.
I am an advocate for more compassionate mental health support in the UK and am one of the co-founders of the Safely Held Spaces project.
