About me

If you are experiencing a challenging time in your life, I can help you get your mind back on side - in order to experience the feelings, emotions and relationships that bring you happiness and fulfilment.

I work across a diverse range of areas and issues, but have specific interest in, and passion for working with those looking to build confidence, overcome anxiety, stress and burnout - as well as challenge to personal relationships, whether romantic, familial or professional.

More about me

I started my business after a period of chronic illness - the mental and physical challenges of which were a catalyst to develop the skills needed to help others encountering challenging times in their lives. I now love seeing the ability people have to transform themselves, their lives and their relationships, when supported by the right people and tools!

My background is in the corporate world, executing sustainability and social impact projects for brands, before I retrained as a Clinical NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist & Life Coach.

How does it work?

My sessions are fun and interactive, focused on where you want to go and how you want to feel, rather than dwelling too deeply on the past. I'll use tools rooted in NLP, Hypnotherapy and Coaching - tailored to your situation and desired outcome.

During our first session (60-75 minutes) we will find out more about you, the possible causes of your challenges and I will give you a guide as to how many sessions you’ll need.

What to do next

Drop me an email sharing what you’d like to work on and we can set up a quick call to discuss next steps - and ensure we’re the right fit.

Looking forward to working with you!

Recent testimonials:

Tim, 27

'I've had CBT in the past and despite finding it useful, it didn't meet all my needs. In James' sessions, he let me lead on what I wanted to address and offered practical solutions and strategies for my everyday life to cope with feels of anxiety & panic. I am so grateful for all his help.'

Lucy, 38

'I've been to see James for a variety of reasons including anxiety, family relationships and overworking. It's opened my mind to thoughts and solutions I didn't know were available to access and I have felt calm, confident and focused since.'

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
