Overcome Anxiety & Stress,

Create Your Calmer, Healthier, Ideal Life.

I Did It - I Want To Help You Do It Too.

Hi I’m James. Difficult events and circumstances triggered my anxiety & stress problems, but I learned there were also invisible root causes of anxiety and stress within me

Automatic thoughts and behaviours, unprocessed emotion, unmet needs, self esteem challenges and more were magnifying difficult events in my life - they were the true root causes of my anxiety & stress problems.

I overcame my anxiety & stress because I resolved those root causes. That’s how I got calm, healthy & resilient again, and that’s why I’m living the life I want and being the person I want to be today.

Anxiety & stress often link with symptoms like worrying; feeling tense, anxious, restless, overwhelmed or irritable; feeling bad about ourselves; brain fog; anger, sadness, irritability or depression; relationship difficulties; panic attacks; breathing issues; heart palpitations; addictions; stomach issues; persistent aches & pains and more. 

But if we only treat the symptoms, it’s like trying to empty a bucket while leaving it under a dripping tap. I help people treat both symptoms and root causes - we turn off that tap.

“This has transformed every sphere of my life in a positive way, such that I have only distant memories of how I used to be before I started the therapy.” – Nia, Economic Advisor

“I suffered from anxiety, panic attacks and psychosomatic disorders including chronic pain. Thanks to him I could get to the root cause of my anxiety and could get rid of all these problems. Since then I have started feeling very calm and now I can say that I feel more connected with myself and with what’s around me. Thank you so much for making my life much better, James.” – Luisa in Barcelona

I see clients at the Queenswood Medical Practice & other venues in Crouch End; Central London (multiple locations); and Online with clients worldwide. I meet many successful and inspiring people, but something is holding them back from fully enjoying their lives:

  • Some worry they push themselves too hard; they might find it hard to 'switch off', or feel a struggle to maintain or build on their success. Others are experiencing a loss of motivation or direction. Many want a better work/life balance, but aren't sure how to make that change. Some report feeling unfulfilled or unhappy.
  • They might feel stressed, tense, nervous or restless; maybe they get vague feelings of fear or worry; or maybe they actually feel okay - but they're experiencing other issues such as...
  • Stubborn physical symptoms, which might prove resistant to medical treatment: Common examples including heart palpitations, dizziness, chronic pain, stomach problems, sensations like tingling or coldness, or many others.
  • They might experience panic attacks or sudden, strong feelings like panic or fear. Many worry about their health.
  • Sometimes they've been using coping mechanisms or addictions like smoking, over-eating or others.

Everyone experiences stress and anxiety differently - these are just a few examples. If any of this sounds familiar, let’s have a conversation to see whether I can help you.  I experienced this myself before overcoming these challenges with Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Coaching, and now I help others do the same.

Anxiety, Stress & Pain Took Away the Life I Wanted,
But I Overcame Them - and Got It Back.

I had a successful career in the City of London.  I felt proud of my achievements, and I knew I was very fortunate.

However, I had physical symptoms including heart palpitations, dizziness, restlessness and chronic pain in my hands that threatened my career.  I didn't know why I had these symptoms - many doctors were unable to help - and I worried for my future health as they escalated.

I also began to notice that whatever I achieved, whatever goal I chose next, looking back I wasn't fulfilled. 

 

I escaped the stress of the office and travelled.  I was privileged to have some fantastic experiences, but my physical symptoms, health concerns and inability to switch off continued; and over time I felt unfulfilled once again.  

Eventually, a cardiologist diagnosed me with stress and anxiety. I was shocked, because I didn't feel stressed or anxious at all. I later learned that we all experience stress and anxiety differently - in my case I barely felt them at all, and they mostly appeared as physical symptoms.

 

Luckily, I found some incredible therapists that helped me understand my condition; de-stress; move towards fulfilment; overcome my symptoms; and enjoy life more than ever.

I regained the feeling of healthiness and resilience, mentally and physically.  These days the stress in my life is generally the good kind, and when a challenge comes my way, my response is healthier and more effective.

These changes gave me the freedom to pursue the best version of myself, and I decided to find out more about ways to alleviate the effects of stress & anxiety so that I could help others. I eventually qualified as a Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Coach specialising in stress & anxiety.

 

Ultimately, overcoming stress & anxiety allowed me to enjoy life more. It's a pleasure to help others overcome their own challenges: arrange an Initial Conversation with me to explore how you can move forward, too.

 

Wishing you the best of luck on your journey,

James
