Get help managing your work-based stress, with Jim


Hello! My name is Jim. I am a Human Givens Counsellor and Psychotherapist

I am practised at helping people find the resources they need to gain emotional balance, relief from distress and practical solutions to difficulties.

I can help with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress, addiction (all kinds), diminished self- confidence, self-harming, eating disorders, poor concentration, sleep disorders and more.

By explaining how we are wired to respond to threat I can help you understand how your difficulties are quite natural given your experiences. I explain how we are also wired to relax and help you experience the relief that comes with deep relaxation and hope for the future.


I have over 30 years’ experience as a trainer, coach, manager and teacher in settings ranging from language schools and a major British environmental charity to the care and support branch of one of the UK’s largest housing associations. I joined the Ashlins’ team in 2016.

I am a member of the Human Givens Institute and I’m enrolled on the Institute’s professional register, which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA).

The human givens approach is also supported by Primary Care Mental Health Education (Primhe), affiliated with the Royal College of General Practitioners. I gained the Human Givens Diploma with distinction in 2015.

Jim Aberdein was very understanding of my anxieties and quickly helped me get back to normal. I was beginning to find it hard to think clearly, and getting anxious about silly things I wouldn't normally - I recognised the signs of stress. Having experienced the healing powers of hypnotherapy in the past I didn't hang around to wait for it to get worse and made an appointment with Jim. Jim listened to all my various issues and was able to help sort through them and show me ways to calm down. Over the course of three weeks (three appointments), I was feeling so much better, back in control.. and relaxed. Thank you Jim.

Just wanted to thank Jim Aberdein, for the 2 sessions we had, the second one being just to thank him for helping me understand my anxiety. He made me see it as a constructive experience and helped me realise the important things in my life.
And if I ever have any issues or know someone that needs help I will definitely recommend him.
It was a pleasure and an honour to meet you Jim, and I really enjoyed our last session.

Kind regards,
