James enjoyed a successful career in Human Resources for over 12 years, coaching and developing senior managers and staff in organisations as varied as high end fashion houses to the leading London transport company. He possess a wealth of experience in helping individuals develop new skills, behaviour patterns and recover their health.
After a serious viral infection James developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A debilitating condition which left him bedridden for much of the three years he was unwell. He was unable to work, exercise or partake in life for a significant amount of time. All meaning and motivation faded away.
Using Integrative Coaching and the Lightning Process he was able to heal his body and mind restoring energy and vitality to his life. Once healed he embarked on training in the Lightning Process and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) adding these skills to his coaching repertoire. Committed to ongoing continuous personal development he is now studying a MSc in Integrative Counselling and Coaching. This modality combines psychotherapy and coaching and is at the forefront of personal development practice.
He is an avid exercise fan and frequently visits the gym understanding the importance of physical activity and its impact on wellbeing.
James now coaches internationally working with clients in varied locations such as the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the USA. His work with clients includes assisting those who suffer from chronic conditions to reconnect with health and develop lives full of purpose and meaning. Additionally, he works with those that are in high control cultural and religious environments to develop their assertiveness capability; increasing their ability to live freely and establish healthy boundaries in relationships.
He is the resident coach at Free Heart Free Minds.
