James is passionate about his involvement with the Odyssey Program. He is excited to be part of something that he knows will make a real difference in the lives of many; he believes that every positive message he conveys is like throwing a pebble into a lake - who knows how far the ripples will spread!
James graduated from Trinity Grammar School, Kew, Victoria, in the year 2000. He began studies in paleontology at Monash University - following a lifelong interest in the subject - and after several years had the chance to travel to Argentina to explore palaeontology in the wilds of Patagonia.
He ended up living and traveling for a year in South America, where he learned Spanish, and also learned something about the common difficulties involved in living as healthy human beings, regardless of economic or cultural differences. This prompted him to shift the focus of his studies upon return to Australia and subsequently travel to England to study hypnotherapy at one of the world's leading institutes. He earned his diplomas, returned to Australia, and runs a private clinical hypnotherapy practice in Melbourne helping people to overcome fears and change unwanted habits (eg: quitting smoking) as well as offering success and motivational coaching.
James likes reading books on philosophy, psychology and world spiritualities. He enjoys spending time at the gym and training in the defensive arts, meditating and practicing Middle-eastern drumming, fiddling with web and graphic design, and playing with his son or watching movies at home with his wife.
