I am a professionally trained Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner Coach and Mindfulness Teacher. I also have accredited training and qualifications in counselling children and adolescents, child psychology and primary education (providing PPA cover and SEN support). I love helping people understand who they are and how best to achieve the life they truly want to live.
My life hasn’t always been as wonderful as it is now and so I understand not only what it’s like to feel the grip of internal chaos but also what steps to take to live a more meaningful, happy and fulfilling life.
I also love music and I have worked as a professional vocalist-musician performer in the music entertainment industry for over 20 years both in the UK and abroad.
As a creative I totally empathise with how the creative mind often sees the world a little differently and how best to navigate through the difficulties this mindset can often experience.
I like to tackle things from a different perspective, with a holistic approach, individually tailored to each client, as everybody is unique.
Professionally known as Bob James I am a PGCert qualified teacher, mentor, life coach, mindfulness tutor and music industry specialist.
I have known what it is like to grow a company to a multimillion pound turnover, I have also experienced having to close companies and let people go. Failure is great feedback and no matter what part of your life curve you are on you need to learn how to manage your thoughts.
As a teacher, mentor and public speaker I have worked for or presented sessions for BIMM, ACM, University of Surrey, Bucks New University, Henley Business School, Leeds College of Music, Confetti/Nottingham Trent University, The Songwriting Academy, Music Academy (Bologna) and Platform One amongst many others.
Having been an active music manager for many years I have learnt a lot about how artists need support not only in business but also with their mental health. The creative industries can be harsh and before entering (or whilst in) these industries you need to learn how to understand the psychological pressures you are under, be your authentic self and be able to trust other people.
Mentoring and life coaching helps YOU stay in control of YOU..
