Hi! I’m James…


“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure, that just ain’t so.” Mark Twain


I’m no psychologist, and certainly not some kind of Guru sitting on a mountaintop promising elusive change. I’m an everyday person just like you, who’s done some work in my own emotional arena and benefited from the clarity and self awareness that’s resulted.


Everything I’ve learned that’s actually helped me has come from connecting to my own life story, and joining the dots between my thoughts, emotions and resulting behaviours.

In simple terms… In the areas of my life where I’m a total dick, I now know why I’m a total dick, and have the power to do something about it. 

So I’ve been facilitating this group workshop thing over the last five odd years to help other people get some clarity and self awareness going on for themselves. The feedback is pretty good if I don’t say so myself. Haha…

I don’t ‘teach material’ as such, but I do create an environment where the ‘right stuff’ seems to bubble up for those involved. It’s different for everyone, and I love that the most. I’ve created an online course too. It’s not as effective as the group workshops because of the whole ‘flying solo’ thing, but it’s better than nothing if you can’t make a group. 

My favourite thing is to take lofty concepts, usually reserved for high level practitioners with letters after their name and break them down into bite-sized, easy to understand useful tools so anyone regardless of age, size or brain capacity can benefit from.

Some say I’m like a tour guide who takes you on a sightseeing tour of your own city, helping you see things you haven’t seen before even though you’ve lived there your whole life.

Some say my authenticity, relaxed communication style, and quirky sense of humour makes them feel at ease with my gentle approach to self-discovery. 

And some say I’m still mostly a dick, so you can make up your own mind about that.
