My Story

James P White (Founder and Senior Instructor)​

Having struggled through life and its challenges for over 39 yrs, progressing from a humble bar person to a senior executive with an international company, striving for success both financially and personally battling with daily struggles from a young age, not knowing how to deal beneficially with these challenges and on occasions turning to other means of coping. A day came when questions like these just would not stop coming up;

What is my purpose ?

How can I be happy ?

Why is life so difficult ?

What do I need to do to succeed ?



And there were many many more different variations of those types of these questions consistently reoccurring in his mind every day. It seemed that life was just a constant struggle and there would be no happiness that lasted for very long. Yes there were happy times but these were short lived and were overshadowed by the many other negative experiences.

What was the answer ?

This is where the journey started, James began to study and research the workings of our mind. Researching many different types and variations of self help techniques, from spiritual, mediumship, psychic, CBT (Congnitive Behavioural Therapy), Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Councelling, Transpersonal Therapy to name a few and then eventually finding and experiencing Mindfulness. 

He found that all the above were extremely beneficial to one's self help, however Mindfulness actually brought them all together, in simple to understand, easy to use ways, and his life changed. He actually changed his profession and studied and qualified as a Clinical Hypno-Psychotherapist using a range of different techniques some of which are mindfully based and he began to assist his clients overcome their challenges.

Mindfulness had such an impact on him that he then decided to explore this in more detail and took a range of different mindful based training experiences and learnings and proceeded to put together his own Adult Mindfulness 6 week programmes with great success. The difference people found by actually understanding mindfulness and how simple it was to use once you understood it. The benefits were amazing and life became much more enjoyable for those that got it.

 So adults could get it, but what about children ? If kids could get it too, perhaps then growing up may not have to be such an ordeal like it was for so many of us. This lead to James gaining more training about how to bring mindfulness to children.

 With his passion to help others and using all of his knowledge, learnings and experiences, teaching all about mindfulness and it's benefits is also a passion, so as to give you the experience and the understanding that may too change your life and those around you for the better.

So why Learn & use Mindfulness ?
