Are you Anxious? Stressed? Overwhelmed?
I teach tools to help you manage these symptoms
I am more than a life coach, I am an educator and a therapist!
As an educator I first teach tools to help you regain control of your state. Then look at the triggers and causes and deal with them through coaching and therapy.
I give clients the opportunity to view their life from a different perspective and empower them with the choice of change to create the life that they want to live.
My name is Dulcie James, I am a trained NLP* Master Practitioner and a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist based near Cirencester, Gloucestershire, I help you make sense of your world, giving you more choice and improved communication skills to understand yourself and others better. A values session in itself is very revealing, clients gain insight of what is important to them and gives clarity through coaching at how by honouring these can enrich their lives.

- Next we explore where the anxiety or negative thoughts came from
- Once you are in a positive place we work on self awareness and confidence building looking at values and abilities/strengths/qualities.
- Finally exploring a more compelling future
As a Grief Recovery Specialist I work on a one-one basis and take clients through the Grief Recovery Programme. We have all experienced loss of some kind in our life, death of a loved one or divorce or pet loss may come to mind. In fact there are over 40 other different Life events that give intangible and painful loss, such as redundancy - gives no loss of identity, loss of status and financial stability. A happy occasion of marriage also creates loss - loss of identity, loss of freedom, and so on. The Grief Recovery Method will help for loss of trust, loss of faith, loss of freedom, loss of friends. When someone is grieving life loses all order, the change in a familiar pattern of behaviour causes us pain, the grief recovery method is a structured program.
We are all Grievers
Whether your grief is caused by a death or another loss, incomplete relationships can have a negative impact on your capacity for happiness. Recovery from loss is achieved by series of small and correct choices made by the Grievers.
As a grief recovery specialist I help you to complete your relationship to the pain, isolation and loneliness caused by significant emotional loss. While death and divorce may seem to be the most obvious losses, the program is designed to work with the other 40 different life events that produce feelings of grief.
The programme consists of 7 one-to-one sessions that leads to the completion of all the undelivered communication. It is different from intellectual discovery as it works with the heart, not the head. It will provide you with the tools to deal with loss and requires a commitment for the full number of sessions as the process is sequential.
The first step is yours by taking a decision to move from Grief to Recovery and move to a place where life has a new meaning, where your memories are intact and you are free to move forward.
Recovery from loss does not mean that memories are forgotten, they are with you for always. It is the pain of the loss that you say goodbye to.
As a Grief recovery specialist I am with you all the way as a heart with ears because grievers need to be heard.
Testimonials - Here are what my clients say:
Feel the fear……and do it anyway!
I had the pleasure of meeting Dulcie at the Gloucestershire Business Show and we got chatting at her stand. I was feeling quite nervous as I was about to jump from a plane and Dulcie kindly offered to help me with this.
“Dulcie talked and walked me through a process which was just amazing!”
So off we went and found a quiet space and for 20 minutes Dulcie talked and walked me through a process which was just amazing. I went from feeling so nervous about jumping from the plane to actually realising that the feeling I was going to experience when I touched the ground far outweighed the feeling of fear, I suppose putting it all into perspective.
I can't thank Dulcie enough for taking the time to do this with me as she helped me so much and I although nervous I thoroughly enjoyed my skydive, it was the most surreal and amazing experience and I know that I can achieve anything I put my mind to. Dawn Swinley – Gloucester
“You have given me my confidence back..”
Thank you for all your help over the last couple of months it has put me back on track and back to the place that I wanted to be. You have given me my confidence back and a positive feel to my life to do what I want to do. There are some things that I hope and pray that will work out as I would like them to, but if they don't they don't then I will do something different.
So a big big thank you for all that you have done for me and my girls, as what you have helped me achieve has helped me help them through this difficult time. Mr W
“...my fear of my health was all that consumed my mind..”
When I came to Dulcie I was in a very bad place. My health anxiety and complete lack of confidence had controlled my life for almost 7 years. I could barely function in relationships or in day to day life. Sometimes I found myself endlessly starring at the ceiling trapped inside my house wondering if I was ever going to be able to leave.
Looking back on it now I feel so much lighter. Dulcie has given me the tools and allowed me to find the inner strength to beat the voice in my head telling me I'm not worth it. The voice hounded me and made me worry continuously.
“Time to stop worrying and start living again!!”
I am now in a strong loving relationship and I feel so much more confident. Where as before my fear of my health was all that consumed my mind I now see a future for me. I am truly grateful for the time Dulcie spent with me and the extra help she has offered me at all times during the process.
Sometimes you believe you’re all alone fighting this, and once you allow yourself to be helped, you realise you were never alone. I can never express my gratitude for where Dulcie has helped me to reach in my life. Time to stop worrying and start living again!! - Mr D

I specialise in Loss and Anxiety Coaching, in particular with the what I call the "what if" syndrome where clients fixate on all that they do not want causing them much anxiety. I work with clients who have fears and phobias.
I also work with "loss" there are over 40 different types of events including loss of trust or loss of faith or redundancy which includes loss of financial security, loss of confidence and loss of faith! This then cause responses such as anxiety, anger and sadness and pain.
Although grief is the normal reaction to loss, the vast majority of what we have learnt about how dealing with loss is not natural and is not helpful.

Coaching sessions are very relaxed and clients never feel rushed. Sessions are fun and at times challenging, with a new learning with each session. I have been described as an organic coach likened to a warm and cosy armchair, with my training and experience I instinctively know what a client needs.
Anxiety & Stress is a negative process and is self fulfilling and goes round and round until your main focus is on negative thoughts and fixations. Your inner voice continues to drown the voice of reason, prevents you from making plans and living! It can destroy relationships, upset families leaving you distraught and tired and lonely. I specialise in anxiety and help clients manage their stress, deal with the triggers and finally move forward.
Work related stress I coach and resolve work related stress. Working individually with clients I aim to restore their focus, instilling confidence and with renewed positive energy, which puts them back on track.
Fears and Phobias Can interfere with our lives and limit our choices. They may have started years ago and over time manifest themselves as very real frightening constraints on our life. I can help you reduce that fear until it is at a more sensible level. Clients feel free and relieved at the outcome.
I also offer support to families and sufferers from Eating Disorders
I give educational talks on anxiety and grief
