About the Trainer:
James Hawes – Psychotherapist | Trainer | School Counsellor – Anger Management Consultant
James has been working as a therapist for twelve years and established Synergy Counselling ten years ago. He works with a broad range of clients. James takes clients from employee assistant programmes and health insurance companies. He works in partnership with several organizations including BUPA, Right Management, Sporting Chance, Catharsis, Emmanuel House and Men@work. Apart from working with individuals he also works in schools with teenagers and runs groups for men in the voluntary sector. In addition to his Counselling and Psychotherapy work he is a trained mediator.
“Previously to training as a Counsellor I trained and qualified as a carpenter, worked as a senior youth worker, a mediator and have been involved in working with people in a variety of settings for several years. During my thirties I ‘burnt out’ and felt lost, emotionally exhausted and in constant physical pain. I began a difficult process of unlearning, seeking to understand myself and embrace my true self. Four years after this part of my journey began, I started training as a therapist and now count it a privilege to hear other’s stories and watch them develop and grow through a difficult stage in their life. I am passionate about creating a space for people to ‘be who they are’ and to move from merely surviving life to living fully and authentically.”
James is a key provider for anger management in Nottingham and receives referrals from GP’s and the local well being services. His anger management work with clients is effective and most clients only need between one and five sessions to have greater awareness and control.
