James Henson - The Pursuit of Growth Show - 24

James Henson is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Mindfulness and Meditation Instructor, and a Certified Business and Life coach. He’s spent the last 10 years working as a therapist and meditation teacher, but has transitioned to life coaching over the past three years.   

His current shift is from in-person, one on one therapy to building courses that can help people that are more widely available and more affordable.   Most of his current work focuses on helping people start or improve their businesses, find a new path in life, and deal with anxiety. He’s creating and teaching a course right now called Befriending Anxiety. It's built around the idea that anxiety is necessary and serves a function, but our hardware and software is very out of date. It aims to help people learn to coexist with anxiety by recognizing that it's simply an energy in the body that our thoughts turn into an unpleasant experience.  

He’s also working on a book called Simple Ways to Have a Good Life that pulls together everything that helped him change his life and that he’s seen change other people’s lives over the past 20 years in short, simple, and actionable chapters. In addition, another current writing project is called You Are Not the Main Character: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself, which focuses on the increasingly emergent self-centered and narcissistic behavior that is becoming the norm in our society.
