Working With Men Workshops with James Hawes

I am a experienced psychotherapist and counsellor accredited and registered member of the British association for Counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP)

I presently work at the Nottingham High School as a Counsellor for two days a week. Previously I worked as an Independence school counsellor and for the Nottingham City behaviour support. This team worked with the most difficult and challenging students in the city and used innovative and therapeutic approaches in working effectively with this cohort. I have facilitated groups on anger, self-esteem, confidence building using many methods that include drumming, mindfulness and bodywork.

For the past 15 years I have developed my private practice, typically seeing between 10-15 clients a week and 95% of my clients are male. I deliver several workshops and talks with regard to working with men and boys. These include '7 tips one working successfully with men in therapy' , 'Effective anger management tools for working with men' and 'Working with men, intimacy and shame'.

James Hawes

I specialise in developing boys and men’s emotional fitness using psycho-educational tools, de-shaming and core conditions of the person Centred Approach. I also initiated the [email protected] voluntary organisation, working to increase boys and men’s emotional fitness, establishing a programme called ‘Contact’ an outdoor and residential programme to help boys increase their emotional fitness. I also developed SHOUT - a successful anger awareness programme for men. I have been part of a Men's group for the past 15 years and am a father of two boys.

James is the author of, ‘The Secret Lives of Men – 10 keys to unlock the mystery’

These workshops will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.  To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to these workshops for a self-select fee.
