With a long and distinguished career as a Senior Engineer, James more recently (2017), decided to pursue a career in service to others and transitioned from Engineering to Counselling. 

Having spent over 40 years mentoring, coaching and assisting young engineers to reach their career goals, James has now parlayed that experience into a more holistic career as a Therapist.

James provides wise counsel to Individuals, Couples and Families experiencing issues and challenges within their lives.

As a survivor of both TBI and ABI (Brain Injuries), James is well versed in adversity and recovery from huge physical and mental challenges, holding special interest in SMH Subconscious Mind Healing that he used on himself to assist his recovery. 

James has survived no less than 19 rounds of invasive neurosurgery and fully understands how life can be very challenging.

James brings a calm and reassuring demeanour to the Lifeforce Clinic, along with many years of professional counselling and coaching, garnered through a long career of mentorship.

In his spare time, you will find James pursuing his love of anything related to Aviation, or spending quality time with his 4 Grandchildren, or out in the bush with his Staffies, Freya and Rainey.

James has a nurturing and comforting therapy style, taking things slowly and methodically, analysing the 'why' of the situation.
