I have had a wonderful experience with James at The Liberated Mind. The patience with which he worked through a long-standing issue was incredible, and he really gives you his undivided attention. James has a wealth of knowledge to draw from and selects the strategy to use with precise care, dependent on your situation. I felt incredibly supported and I can honestly say that James was so invested in helping me through my situation that he would not stop until he was satisfied that I had fully worked through the issues. You don't feel like a client, James really makes you and your issues feel incredibly important, and I would recommend him to anyone with any obstacle they need to move out of the way - you will have an amazingly personal, caring and relaxed experience with an extremely knowledgeable therapist who will make you feel completely cared for at every step.

I’ve been working with James since mid September and within a short time I’ve noticed a huge difference. My colleagues and others have noticed too! I went in to work on public speaking, but didn’t realise that it was actually 22 years of life experiences that I hadn’t dealt with. We worked on an area each week and it all clicked into place. I’m looking forward to seeing the long term result!
I highly recommend James, he has truly helped me massively, I feel differently about myself after James’s guidance and professional help. Thank James your amazing.
My sessions with James at The Liberated Mind have been an incredible learning and healing experience. They exceeded my expectations of what hypnotherapy would involve and how quickly and simply it could help me deal with my
anxiety. I am forever grateful! SG
I saw James at The Liberated Mind for help with panic attacks; something I had struggled to manage for over 20 years. Through working with James I discovered that actually my problem manifested far further back in my life than I’d originally thought.
He helped me re-process these events in a stress-free, gentle and professional way. To be able to let go rather than manage my symptoms is huge for me. I
wish I’d met him 20 years ago! I cannot recommend him highly enough.
It was exactly what I had been looking for all of these years! Someone who can help guide me into finding the answers to my own questions and thoughts, and to be more self accepting of myself and my circumstances. I’ve gained more clarity into why I was feeling the way I was which in turn has helped me find my own solutions to the problems I face. The liberated mind really helped me with coming to terms with what has happened in my past and moving on from them. I strongly encourage anyone who has been through a tough time and\or has dealt with a traumatic experience to give the liberated mind a chance at helping you.
I was looking at the questionnaire James had sent me before starting the coaching to remember where I was before and my aims with the coaching. In this questionnaire I wrote that I was feeling stuck professionally, unemployed yet unable to apply for jobs. This made feel terribly unhappy and lost in life. I had a long depression and my own history of mental illness had made me fearful of life. I was full of doubt regarding myself, feeling unworthy, failing...
My goals with the therapy were to overcome my fear of applying for jobs and actually apply to them, to choose a good company where I could remain for a long period and, a deeper question, to help me identify what I truly wanted to do in life that felt fulfilling.
I had had CBT and some therapy before which were not effective. Many years ago, I had psychoanalysis and I loved it, yet unfortunately too expensive. Some time ago I had taken a course on NLP and it did help me to reach goals and empower the mind. I searched and found “The Liberated Mind”. I did see 5 stars on all the reviews, and I thought “this is weird”, but the reviews were genuine. So, I gave it a go.
James truly knew how to use the NLP techniques plus psychodynamic therapy (the unconscious relationship patterns that may have evolved from your childhood) and Person Centred (self-development in the ‘here and now’). From the beginning I understood that James’ purpose was not to keep me in therapy for years.
James released my pain and dealt with PTSD. He was incredibly dedicated to make me feel better. He surely went the extra mile. Very soon I was feeling happier and I certainly came out of the depression quickly. I was achieving my exercise and house management goals; I was having a wonderful relationship with my family and I was thinking positively.
Yet, two things were happening: I was not listening to the hypnosis tracks consistently and I unconsciously was searching for a psychoanalytic therapy. By session 10 James said to me that were not progressing as quickly as he expected. I started listening to the tracks every night and I now feel great!
I am applying for jobs consistently. Now I feel I am a goal achiever; I have a purpose, I am getting things done (so, do listen to the tracks), I think differently, I approach life in a different way. I am a different person.
I will keep on going every 3 weeks and very soon once a month (instead of every week) to keep up the good work and completely engrain the good habits in my unconscious. I feel liberated.
Thank you, James.

The sessions with James have been very helpful and I always get a sense of calmness and well being after each one. His approach is professional yet warm and he applies a range of techniques to delve deep in the subconscious and uncover and treat various issues. His interest in helping people and listening skills along with his knowledge and experience make his style unique and a pleasure to work with. Whatever your issues, I definitely recommend seeing James!
James' techniques helped me to get through a difficult time in my life when a few things hadn't gone my way and life had really got to me. In less than 6 or 7 sessions over the course of a few months I'm now much happier and will be more resilient to future bumps in the road. Highly recommended

Wow what a great guy James is! I was super nervous as I’ve never done anything like this before but within minutes of arriving James put me completely at ease and that’s not an easy task when tackling someone like me.
I booked to see if James could help with my fear of flying but not only did he help me with that he has also given me the tools to tackle my fear of public speaking too. I honestly left the session feeling super positive and like he has made a real difference to the way I’m looking at things. i felt like I was walking on air afterwards.
Instead of a fear of dread when I think of flying I’m now wanting to take a flight to use the tools he’s given me and instead of not wanting to go to a meeting I’m feeling like if I was met with having to talk openly then I would be able to....that’s pretty darn incredible considering the limited time he had with me.
He has also sent me a super relaxing video to watch whenever I’m feeling edgy, I watched it this afternoon and passed out on the sofa due to the complete calmness of it, amazing.
So yes, I would highly recommend James to anyone looking to tackle something that’s bothering you, he may have just fixed a problem that has severely affected me for the last couple of years and also another thing that has hindered me for many more years than that! Awesome!
Thank you so much James.

I would highly recommend James at The Liberated Mind. It's amazing what a difference he's made to my life in just a couple of months.
I have always been an anxious person with low self esteem, and I have struggled with the stresses of life in more recent years. With his supportive, knowledgeable and professional approach, James has helped change my mindset, and I feel happier, more positive and able to cope better with stressful situations. Most of all, I now have clarity of mind and a greater sense of wellbeing, and that is thanks to James.
James is amazing! I went to him for help on overcoming bad anxiety and insomnia after struggling with them for several months and after just two sessions I feel much calmer, more self-assured and completely ready to face new challenges!
I have always been a bit apprehensive about therapists and counselors, however from the start I felt very comfortable and safe with James thanks to his caring demeanor and ability to listen well. I really enjoyed the way he used the coaching sessions to not only help me overcome my issues but also to educate me on how the human brain works so that I could better understand how these problems can arise and how to overcome them.
I have not felt this at peace with myself for a very long time and it would not have been possible without his expert guidance!
I was recommended The Liberated Mind by word of mouth by a friend who had nothing but high praise for James.
After leaving a message he was very quick to get in touch with me. After a quick assessment an appointment was made for the following week and James sent me a couple of links to download and listen to and watch.
James is very calm and can put you at total ease. The session went very smoothly and afterwards I left feeling refreshed and revitalised. In the few days that passed since the session I was amazed at how I felt, each day was an improvement on the already brilliant first day.
My mind is truly liberated, I cannot recommend James enough!
James is absolutely brilliant. I've seen a few different therapists/counsellors in the past, and James helped me to find the source of my issues and put me in the right direction in just three sessions! He's kind, understanding, supportive and also really knowledgeable when it comes to the human brain and our emotional responses. I strongly recommend him!
I went to James for CBT counselling following a build up of Anxiety and PTSD related issues. Having never undergone professional counselling properly before/having had poor experiences with wellbeing services in the past, I wasn't sure what to expect - but working with James has completely exceeded anything I could've imagined. In the space of a few months, James has helped me completely shift my perspective and approach to life through his superb level of care; something I did not feel was possible going into the process. James makes an incredibly successful effort to make every session feel safe and welcoming, and his attention to detail leaves no element uncertain, I've felt completely guided and reassured throughout the entire process. I am so delighted to say that James has helped me return to my 'old' self through making peace with my past and 'reinstalling' a new lease of life within me, I cannot recommend, (and thank) The Liberated Mind enough.
I was recommended this service by friends and colleagues at work, I am so happy I got involved and went to James for help.
I have suffered with anxiety over the years but have never felt that anything helped long term, James has given me the tools to build a new and happy mindset and deal with my issues in an adult and healthy way.
I would strongly recommend James to anyone who wants a realistic approach and long term strategies.
I have been seeing James after he was recommended to me. I had been battling with anxiety and low moods for a while and felt "stuck" not knowing where I was going. I felt very comfortable meeting him and was amazed at how he made everything so much clearer after feeling so muddled for so long. I now have clarity of mind and the anxiety has gone. I now feel ready to move on with my life .thank you James
