About me

I’m James Scurry the founder of MindEmpathy.  Like many others, psychotherapy is a second career for me. My original educational background and career focus was in journalism and television news production.  I’m currently completing a four-year Masters in Mindfulness-based psychotherapy at the internationally renowned Karuna Institute in Devon.  I have also worked in acute mental health centres across London with Rethink Mental Illness and The Awareness Centre.  I am also one of the founding members of the Safely Held Spaces project, a new initiative aimed at connecting people with compassionate mental health support across the United Kingdom
