James Thorley
Addiction Therapist at Delamere

About James

I have worked at Delamere for 20 months. I deliver 1-1 therapy sessions and occasional groups to Delamere guests. I have been in recovery myself since 1987. I am passionate about my person-centred modality and the power this brings to the counselling relationship. I have accrued approximately 6,000 counselling hours and have taken much from my face-to-face client experiences which enhances my practice.

Previous experience

My first experience of working in a rehab setting was in 1988 with the Priory Group in Roehampton and later at their site in Knutsford. Post-training I have worked with TTP and Oasis recovery and have spent the last 6 and a half years prior to my role at Delamere with Open Minds in Wrexham, four of which as Senior Therapist. I have also worked for Mind, ran a Salvation Army hostel counselling project and the Chester Charity Platform for Life, worked within schools, and I run a busy private counselling practice so have varied experience across many sectors of counselling.
