Counselling and talking therapy in Leicester

James Stern BA, MA (therapy)


I have a first degree in Psychology and Philosophy (Warwick University) and a Master's degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Regent's College, London). As well as my main private practice, I provide short-term counselling for a number of schemes which exist to provide access to a therapist or counsellor in Leicester for the employees of a number of major employers. I have been a young people's counsellor in Leicester and elsewhere working for two young people's centres (ages 11-26).

My practice

I'm a Counsellor/Psychotherapist who has been in private practice counselling in Leicester for over twenty five years, seeing both individuals, with a variety of personal issues they wished to explore, and couples for relationship counselling. This makes me one of the longest practicing counsellors in Leicester.

What types of issues do I see clients for?

* Depression
* Relationship Counselling
* Couple counselling
* Doubts about self worth and self esteem
* Problems with anxiety (OCD etc)
* Bereavement
* Family issues
* Stress and work difficulties
* Problems with anger

I try to help people explore their difficulties and find better ways of coping. Sometimes people simply welcome the opportunity to express and reflect on their difficulties in a supportive environment.

I can see clients for varying lengths of time according to their needs - from short-term work of between one and a few sessions in duration to seeing clients for ongoing therapy. Frequency of sessions is open to discussion.

How much does a session cost?

Face to face or telephone counselling sessions both cost £40 per one-hour session for individuals, or £50 per one and a quarter hour session (couple counselling). Sessions booked and paid for two days in advance are £35 and £45 respectively (re-scheduling and cancellation restrictions apply).

When can I book a session?

I work weekdays (Monday to Friday) and weekday evenings up until a latest start time of 9pm. Weekend sessions are available on request.

Telephone 0116 288 6163 - enquiries 8am to 10pm, including weekends.

How do I get to my session?

My psychotherapy and counselling practice in Leicester is based in West Knighton, Leicester,
(1 Northdene Road, LE2 6FJ). This is located approximately two miles south of Leicester city centre, very close to the Welford Road which is on a number of bus routes. Adjacent are the Clarendon Park and Stoneygate areas of Leicester. Bus numbers 44 and 44A, which take about 15 minutes from Leicester railway station, run within a few yards - buses 47,48,49, 49A and 49B also run from the city centre along Welford Road. See map below.

Counselling takes place in the front sitting room of my home, with no flights of steps involved - at present however I cannot offer ground floor toilet facilities. Unrestricted parking is readily available at all times.
