Henry James


Henry is a Registered Psychologist at Aresolution. From children to youth and young adults, through to older adults, Henry has experience working with a range of different people with varying needs in a psychological setting. He also has experience working with clients who identify as Aboriginal, and culturally and linguistically diverse. He is skilled in helping people experiencing symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ADHD, trauma, and much more.

Henry’s most recent experience providing psychological services was in Carnarvon (3 years) where he provided therapy as part of a sexual assault response service. Prior to embarking on his journey for registration as a psychologist, he worked in child protection and family support for 3 years.

Henry completed his Bachelor of Psychology in 2014, which he obtained with distinction and honours. His research paper later went on to be published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. After some years working in human-focused areas, Henry underwent his internship as a provisional psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, which he completed in a rural setting in 2021. Henry has been a registered psychologist since this time, and is also a member of the Australian Psychological Society since 2018. 

Henry is skilled in psychological assessment, intervention, risk assessment, and drawing on a range of therapeutic practices to tailor-make a therapeutic approach that is evidence-based and a good fit for each client.

Henry has a holistic and particularly human focussed approach and takes pride in his ability to make and maintain a genuine human connection with his clients, which forms the foundation that Henry builds his therapeutic approach from. His warm, engaging and approachable personality, as well as his naturally curious outlook, is a strength that he draws on to engage with his clients, both youth and across the lifespan. Henry involves parents and caregivers throughout the therapeutic process with children and youth when appropriate.

Henry has particular experience in delivering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), with age groups from across the lifespan. Henry additionally has experience delivering trauma-focussed (TF-CBT), which he completes in a particularly holistic approach. Henry enjoys helping clients make sense of their world, their thoughts and feelings, and offering therapeutic guidance to get from where they are now to where they want to be.


Henry is experienced in working with a range of anxiety-based disorders. Henry supports his clients to identify the relevant symptoms, triggers and unhelpful thoughts, and can assess if a working diagnosis is appropriate. Henry helps clients to challenge unhelpful thoughts and work on avoidance-based behaviour.


Henry is experienced working with clients experiencing symptoms of depression, and takes care to create a trusting and safe space for clients to express these feelings, related thoughts, and behaviour. Henry understands this is a position of trust and compassion, and uses this to help clients work through feelings of depression.

Sexual Abuse

Henry has spent a number of years working with people who have experienced sexual abuse, both recent and during childhood. Henry brings empathy and a caring understanding to working with clients who have experienced sexual abuse, and feels strongly about creating a space in which clients can discuss and process these events at their own pace. Henry is able to help clients during this process, work on grounding techniques and emotional regulation, and in time help clients to work on alleviating the strong emotionalresponse that can be associated with thoughts of the abuse.


Henry has experience working with clients who have symptoms associated with PTSD. Henry is passionate about helping clients work through the traumatic experiences in a psychologically safe way that is at the client’s own pace. Henry is comfortable sitting with the vulnerability in session with clients, particularly when discussing traumatic memories, dreams, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, associated anxiety and reminders of the traumatic event.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Henry is capable of conducting CBT with competency. He has a number of years of experience conducting CBT based psychological intervention for various psychological presentations. Henry is able to tailor a CBT based approach that fits for each client in a meaningful, and evidence-based way where appropriate.
