“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
James is not a psychologist, nor is he some kind of Guru sitting on a mountaintop promising elusive change. He’s an everyday person just like you, who’s done some hard work in the emotional arena.
Everything he teaches he’s learned from his own journey, which has been a process of understanding himself first.
James has been facilitating the Soul Matters course via group workshops over the last 5 years, and his material has enabled hundreds of people to connect with themselves in a much deeper way.
As well as being a facilitator, James is also an emotional health coach and public speaker.
James’ gift is that he can take concepts usually reserved for high level practitioners and break them down into bite sized, easy to understand ideas and useful tools for other everyday people just like himself.
So you could say James is more like a tour guide who takes you on a sightseeing tour of a new city, helping you explore your internal infrastructure, challenging you to investigate what you see.
Known for his his authenticity, relaxed communication style, and quirky sense of humour James will make you feel at ease with his gentle approach to self-discovery.
James is passionate about you living a free and authentic life, and has a unique ability to help you connect the dots between your life experiences, and the stories you’ve been telling yourself to give meaning to those experiences.
James also owns one of Australia’s largest children’s bookselling businesses called Learning Discovery.
He is husband to Annie, and father to three extraordinary young adults Elly, Josie and Tristan.
To top this off, James thinks he’s not half a bad cook either!
