Experience

Philosophy

People are always doing the best they can to handle their difficulties. When they have problems it is because they have not been able to tap into all of their resources. They do not understand what constrains them. They are often limited by how they think about themselves and their problems.

Therapy is a partnership through which the expertise, training and experience of the therapist are used to help the client discover and use their own resources to understand and resolve problems. The goal of therapy is an increase in the level of the client's self-awareness. The client's contribution to this partnership is a willingness to explore deeply their needs, feelings, beliefs and experiences and to honestly confront themselves.

James Morgan is a member of the Theravive Network of Therapy Professionsal.
