I work collaboratively with clients to facilitate their attainment of health and life goals.
After a successful career in HR for over 12 years, I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A debilitating condition which left me bedridden for much of the three years I was unwell. Having used integrative coaching to regain my health and recreate my life I now coach internationally working with clients in locations such as the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the USA.
My work with clients is varied and includes assisting those who suffer from chronic conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain and depression to regain their health, through to changing negative recurring life patters and limiting beliefs.
I also work with clients who are in high control cultural and religious environments; increasing their ability to live freely and establish healthy boundaries in relationships.
Clients work often then moves on to identifying career/ educational goals and then to developing a life full of meaning and purpose.
We work together to transform the areas of their lives that they are currently dissatisfied with and I can do the same with you.
How integrative coaching can help you
Integrative coaching is a unique process which brings profound understanding and lasting change both personally and professionally. Together we collaborate to reflect, develop strategies, set goals and succeed, helping in but not limited to the following areas:
- Enhancing self-awareness and confidence
- Career advancement
- Educational advancement; exams, course work and learning
- Enabling optimism and empowerment
- Well-being and health
- Fostering creativity and clarity
- Finding a sense of direction and purpose
- Work/life balance and lifestyle changes
- Identifying and Overcoming limiting beliefs
I have several years of experience and use a blend of coaching techniques to help individuals reach their health and life goals. This involves creating a welcoming space that allows clients to share the challenges they are experiencing. Using tools such as therapeutic dialogue, Solution Focused Coaching, NLP, EFT and Hypnotherapy a way forward is identified.
My unique experience of working with clients in an international context, combined with my experience of working with a variety of modalities, allows me to seamlessly draw upon the tools that will work optimally for you. My current psychotherapeutic training further enhances the coaching experience.
Using these tools great results can be achieved and clients can transform relationships, health and their lives. This leads to increased motivation, energy, confidence and happiness.

Words from my clients...
"I've loved having James as my life coach. It's made a huge positive difference to the way I view myself, others around me and deal with day to day situations.I've been able to recognise my own self-worth and I am able to understand the beliefs that underpin my anxieties and come out of difficult situations feeling like I have learnt something from the experience and most importantly, I feel like I am worthy of love and respect despite what life throws at me.
His approach is very engaging as well as empathetic and he always comes to the session well prepared. I find myself able to apply the solutions he has passed on to me to different areas in my life. Simply put, he's a talented life coach who is dedicated to helping others."
Aliyah, London, United Kingdom
"James' caring and solutions based approach to personal development really turned my life around. He helped me identify the root issues of anxiety that were holding me back in multiple areas and taught me cognitive techniques to redirect my thought patterns to a more positive place. After each session, I was able to immediately implement what I had learned into my life leading to tangible results. I couldn't recommend him highly enough."
Elliot, Jerusalem, Israel
"....I was also able to make goals and achieve them, such as finding and joining a community of people who share and understand my experiences. I'm still following all the instructions and points guided to me during these sessions and they still help me in removing the negative emotions in me.
I tended to overthink and feel overwhelmed with things that happen in my life and I guess I let myself get so used to the stress and anxiety that I became unable to go on with my life. Ever since I started doing the cognitive techniques I started feeling more relaxed and more focused on my daily tasks and activities rather than stressing over them."
Hibah, United Arab Emirates
"After completing my sessions I felt motivation and encouragement. The coaching allowed me to find and accept possibilities, explore opportunities, overcoming my fears and practice self-acceptance. I am now motivated to approach life in a different way.
I discovered that there were a number of things that I was hiding from myself and struggling to understand, I avoided discussing them, not even with myself. But now I’ve understood that life is not limited, one can be anything one wants and everything is possible as long as the person is willing to put in the work and do what is needed.
The most impacting thing that was constantly haunting me was acceptance by others and what I’ve learned is that I cannot control people and I should also understand that not everyone will appreciate me for what I am, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I am imperfect. One needs to get out of the shell of limiting beliefs and fears, to explore and experience the beauty of life.
These sessions have helped me to improve my mental strength and health and that has positively impacted my physical health.
Jimmy has also equipped me with some cognitive tools that I’m continuing to use every day and it really brings a smile through my face. A wonderful feeling, like enjoying a sunset from the rooftop top of a high building."
