Meet the Team
Consisting of qualified and experienced trainers, the core Clearfocus Training team have been with the company from the start.

Lead facilitator, trainer and Managing Director
In a previous life, James owned and ran a successful landscaping & platform hire company for a decade until 2007. But due to ongoing pressure and stress, he suffered severe burnout which led to a struggle with mental health.
James went on to retrain and qualify as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist before working in the NHS. This led to two private practices offering psychotherapy and counselling services across the South West, with a number of clients from a variety of workplaces. Recognising the lack of mental health support for a range of work-based situations, in 2015 James founded Clearfocus Training.
Delivering targeted mental health and communications training, James brings over 10 years’ first-hand experience to meet the needs and requirements of any company and their staff.
When you contact Clearfocus Training, he’ll be your first point of contact and work with you throughout the discovery and training process.

Co-lead facilitator, trainer and Managing Director
Becoming part of the team at the beginning, Priscilla joined us as an already experienced trainer and while studying to become a qualified BSc Mental Health nurse.
Coming to the UK from South Africa in 2003, Priscilla worked junior roles in the NHS from 2009-12 before volunteering to get hands-on experience of working in the sector. This led to completing a college Access to Nursing course in 2013-14.
Going on to study for a mental health nursing degree at the University of the West of England (UWE) from 2014-17, Priscilla gained in-depth knowledge of working with diverse mental health issues.
Her impressive education, together with working in in-patient and community settings, has given Priscilla hands-on experience of different mental health issues, diagnoses, and care. Her knowledge often draws on personal stories and real-life experiences, adding extra value to our courses.
