Jake Russell - Integrative Counsellor and Neurosomatic Psychotherapist


About me

I am an integrative counsellor and Neurosomatic Psychotherapist, which is a mouthful of a way for saying my approach to therapy is underpinned by contemporary theory in the neurosciences and an understanding of how the human nervous system directly impacts our experience.

The nervous system connects our brains, bodies, and environments—and somehow this complex set of inseparable interconnections gives rise to our minds.

Whatever’s on our mind therefore also presents itself in the body (and brain) in some form, whether as stress, tension, panic, pain, or illness, or indeed as a sense of contentment, ease, and wellbeing. Likewise, our interior life tends to reflect back at us in our external environment—in our relationships, home, work and so on.

I see these myriad interdependent connections as the many gateways onto the path of discovery and healing, and they’ll come clear in therapy as you and I begin to form our own relationship to one another.

I have experience of working with people with trauma, depression, anxiety, isolation, identity, belonging, meaning, and purpose.

I am an accredited member of the National Council of Integrative Psychotherapist (NCIP), a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I am working towards full accreditation with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I adhere to each organisation’s ethical framework for good practise.
