Welcome to Synergy, please take a look around the website where you will find information about the services that we provide. Modern life can be hectic and stressful stretching mind, body and spirit to breaking point. The result of this pressure can cause a sense of feeling disjointed, unhappiness and dis-ease. Synergy are experienced at helping people make sense of what is going on inside of them through the difficult stages of life. During the lastest Covid 19 Lockdown I will continue to offer face to face appointments as well as offering online counselling sessions via WhatsApp or Zoom and telephone sessions.
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.
The Synergy team is expanding. I am pleased to welcome Fiona Barnes, Andrew Cranham, Richard Goodall and Adam Yusufali to the Synergy team as my new associate counsellors - read more about them on the About Synergy page.
NEW BOOK - I am very proud to announce that my new book, THE SECRET LIVES OF MEN - Ten Keys to unlock the mystery is now available to buy. Go to Amazon to buy a kindle/paperback version or to find out more about the contents of the book
See the great reviews on AMAZON - here is one from Sally - 'THE best book to help guide people through relationships - equally useful for both men and women on a very practical level, with a particular reference to the five-stage model called A.W.A.R.E. Everything in this book resonated with me allowing me to finally understand what was going on in my relationship, with a view to moving on eitherway.'
Here is a video podcast on you tube where I am discussing my book with Ben from Ology

Counselling and Psychotherapy can last for a short or long period depending on the nature of the issue that you wish to address. Sometimes 1- 3 sessions may be all you need and will be mutually agreed between counsellor and client at the first session. For others, long term therapy will be more suitable.
Within this practice we are able to offer counselling for males and females, couples counselling and group therapy. You can choose to work with myself (James, pictured above) or (Sally) and can find further information about us on the 'About Synergy' page. We also provide a full range of services to businesses including individual work, group work, conflict mediation and workshops on various issues.
