After years suffering with low self-esteem and confidence, high anxiety, stress and depression, in 2007 James decided that something needed to change. He sought help and understanding to overcome these challenges which lead to his life becoming much happier, more fulfilling and personally successful. As a result of this transformation he has found his passion, a passion to help others, assisting them in transforming themselves, so they too can reach their full potential as well.

A bit about myself, in my own words
I had been working and studying with various different types of mind / body types of therapies and healing since 2010. Having totally changed direction from being in the corporate environment working up to a senior management level, the decision to decide and move to study and train in a therapeutic role did not come easy. However, because of changes that made life more enjoyable and overcoming personal challenges the decision was made easier and the direction was clear, to pass on the learning, experiences and knowledge and help as many people as possible to do the same.
Having researched thoroughly and after much deliberation, having seen so many on-line training courses and weekend training courses, I chose to study and train with the ICHP and Dr Joseph Keaney which presented an in depth training course with full history and proven therapeutic techniques which only on full completion and supervision would then allow me to practice as a qualified therapist. The ICHP also adheres to a stringent code of practice and code of ethics, in the same instance as any professional organization would, and adheres to all legislation as well. Now James holds a Masters in Clinical Hypno-psychotherapy which is based around evidence based practice with the hope that very soon our practice will be accepted by all private health insurance companies in the future.
Since my new journey began in 2010 all the training and studying and practicing, finally paid off and having achieved both the proven academic and practice requirements to be fully licensed and insured, in 2014 API Clinic was formed and began to help others with their challenges. Since we began we have assisted successfully hundreds of clients using 1 to 1 personal therapeutic sessions and hundreds more have attended the various different workshops and training courses hosted by us. You can see some of their overall feedback on our Testimonial Page.
I am so grateful to have found such an amazing way to help others and bring them a much brighter outlook and more wonderful experiences as they move forward with the changes that they chose which helped them turn life around for and assisted them achieve the goals they set for themselves and I look forward to many more years continuing to do this as it is not a job to me but it is my passion and I enjoy each and every moment of it.
