About Dr Jim Byrne, Doctor of Counselling

Background information, education, etc.

November 2016

Hello,

drjim-counsellor1My name is Jim Byrne.

I have a doctoral degree in counselling (DCoun) from the University of Manchester, UK (2002-2009).  A master’s degree in education (MA(Ed)) from the Open University, UK (1991-1994). And a diploma in counselling psychology and psychotherapy (DipCPPsych-Rus) from Rusland College, Bath, UK (2001-2003).

I also have two certificates in Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (RE&CBT), from the Albert Ellis Institute, NYC, with the University of Birmingham (November 2005); and the old Institute for REBT, in Bristol, UK (November 1999).

ecent-logo-blue3I practice a system of counselling which integrates the best and most useful elements of the fifteen or so systems I have studied, including CBT, Attachment theory, Affect regulation theory, Object relations theory, Person-centred counselling, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt therapy, and many others.  (My system is called Emotive-Cognitive Embodied Narrative Therapy, or E-CENT counselling for short.  What is E-CENT counselling?***)  E-CENT counselling also incorporates insights into the body-brain-mind link.  So we deal with the whole client, and not just with their ‘mind’.

Here’s a little video clip which explains some of the latest revisions in this system of counselling and therapy:

I am a Fellow Member of the International Society of Professional Counsellors (FISPC), and a Registered Member of Counselling (CCC.Reg).

I am in my nineteenth year (at the end of November 2016) as a counsellor in private practice, in Hebden Bridge, and all over the world via the telephone system, Skype-webcam, and by email.

Three sample client testimonials:

♣ To Jim: “…At our previous session, your main intervention had the precision of an acupuncture needle hitting the spot.  I felt a great sense of relief from depression and stress immediately.  I felt so light and free.  Thank you. …  See you next week”.

J.K.K., Wakefield, West Yorkshire. (Three sessions of F2F counselling for emotional distress).

~~~

♣ “Dear Jim, I’ve been thinking back over the past year, and I really appreciate the great benefit I got from your guidance of my self-reflection.  I have learned so much from you. And I am so much more sorted out than I was.  Thank you”.

P.A.N., Crag Vale, Calderdale.  (36 sessions of Face 2 face counselling for stress and anxiety, and relationship maladaptation).

~~~

♣ “Hey Jim, … I continue to benefit from the Mind Hut, or Windows Model, at every opportunity when I’m in a bad emotional state, including depressive moments. It takes just half an hour or less and I recover a good emotional state that is also durable. … With appreciation for the work you do, I salute you and I will keep you as a reference point”.

M.V.S., Madrid, Spain (Two email counselling sessions for depression and stress).
