Here are just a few of the comments and feedback I have received from clients, workshop participants and buyers of my products:

Sound Therapy :-

The experience was very powerful and has had a very positive effect at  allowing me to address some issues which have been “nagging for a  while”, which possibly I was not aware were still so problematic ! James is a lovely relaxing person and it was so nice to spend time in  his extraordinarily tidy restful home and treatment room!
I would recommend anyone to try this therapy as it is a lovely experience and you are in very good hands with James.   WF

I had 3 sessions of Sound Therapy on three consecutive Friday mornings with James as my therapist. I found James to be a very caring therapist. He was professional, made me feel at ease, and he takes great care to provide a calm quiet and clean environment in which to practice the sound therapy. I would definitely recommend him! AB

Thank you James for helping me to release my emotions that were blocked!

The resonance of the sound healing, gradually by the third session, helped release what by body and mind no longer required.  I could physically feel the pain gradually leave my body. It was an unusual sensation, as felt an aching all over body, which lasted for only a few minutes. Since that treatment my body and mind feels deeply restored, nourished and rebalanced!  I highly recommend Sound Healing with James A D

I heard of James and his sound healing therapies through a mutual friend and it turned out I had met him before at a local sound bath – so I knew he was the perfect person for me to see for sound healing! The 3 sessions I had with James were transforming – with James’ insight they gave me an opportunity to really understand what was going on inside me and why, and through the amazing healing frequencies that James created with the singing bowls, he was able to help balance my emotions, energy and thought patterns at a deep level. The benefits I gained from the sessions were a deep sense of calm, an increased awareness of myself and an improved ability to process my own thoughts and feelings as they arise.  I feel like a new, improved person through having had these sessions and it has opened my heart and mind to sound as a healing therapy which I am keen to explore further. VS

Singing bowl workshops :-

“James has an extensive knowledge of the properties and qualities of a range of singing bowls. He shares this through gentle and insightful teaching. I learnt a great deal over the three weeks and will be using my own singing bowls to much better effect from now on!

I thoroughly recommend the course to anyone, whether just out of interest or wishing to acquire more advanced knowledge” SG

I was touched by James’ generosity in sharing his very wide knowledge of singing bowl playing techniques, consequences of produced sounds, and ways of developing subtle ways of sensing these sounds. Working with James in his workshops certainly made me very very happy. Thank you! R V

“As a sound therapist with a basic understanding of singing bowls I learnt so much from James during the singing bowl workshops. I’m only disappointed I couldn’t do the final one. Having never met James I found him very welcoming, helpful and engaging throughout. I would thoroughly recommend a workshop with him.”


After having a wonderful course of sound healing therapy sessions with James I was keen to learn more about Himalayan singing bowls and their healing properties.  Through James’ tutorial sessions I learned about the history, theory and physiology of the bowls as well as gaining lots of hands on experience of playing and interacting with the bowls myself.  James is a very knowledgeable, informative and friendly tutor and his passion for sound healing really came across during the sessions.  I thoroughly enjoyed James’ tutorials and they have given me the desire to explore sound healing further with the possibility of taking a more in depth course in future. VS

2 x heavier gong mallets

Thank you so much! Not only do they look wonderful, but having just played one of my gongs with them, they are lovely to work with and immediately brought the gong to life with very minimal work!   I much prefer these to my Paiste ones, as I find that they are just a little too long and the handles sometimes have a tendency to tap the gong. Where as these ones, being shorter are much more comfortable and easier to work with. They also hide the contact sound extremely well between the mallet and the gong.-  DM
