Professional Profile

My name is James McCandless and I am a senior CBT Psychotherapist with Think CBT covering the London W18 area. As a fully qualified and BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, I have over ten year’s experience in therapeutic communities treating clients with complex and enduring mental health problems.

In 2006 I worked for the Henderson Hospital in the NHS working with individuals experiencing Personality Disorders before joining the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies government initiative in London. I have been practicing CBT since 2008 and I have gained extensive experience of working with clients experiencing Depression and/or Anxiety problems. In 2016 I joined an NHS Specialist Eating Disorder Service and I am currently providing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for individuals experiencing eating disorders in the community. I also have experience of providing clinical supervision in CBT.

My primary interests are in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Social Phobia and I have additional training MANTRA for eating disorders. I work with adults, 18 and above and my approach to therapy is primarily CBT and I have a Person Centred Style.

I abide by the professional and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and BPS and I have full professional indemnity and current DBS clearance.
