All About James

James Chapman

James Chapman

I am an accredited Instructor Member, approved by MHFA England to deliver Adult MHFA courses.

After many years (over)working in IT at a busy law firm, I was suffering from stress, burnout and a bad back. I left my job and trained in yoga and structural bodywork.

As well as being an MHFA instructor, I am also a yoga teacher and yoga therapist with over 16 years experience, specialising in mental health and addiction. I have worked with some of the leading mental health charities, rehab clinics and the NHS.

I have experienced the mental health system, both as a service user and service provider. But despite this and training in psychotherapy, I learnt so much from my MHFA training, which is why I immediately knew I wanted to become a trainer.  I firmly believe that every adult should have these skills and knowledge to not only support others, but themselves as well.
