Mindfulness In Music

​Before training as a therapist I worked in the music industry for over 15 years as a songwriter and producer. My job brought many opportunities and incredible experiences, it took me from London to live and work in California then Stockholm.

The MINIM project presents an opportunity for me give something back to an industry that has given me so much joy by offering therapy treatments to artists, songwriters, and others working within the music industry.

Working with Artists

The pressures of fame and being in the spotlight can have an adverse effect on a person's well-being. From back-to-back scheduling to having the way you look and every moment scrutinised can lead to adverse mental health issues.   

I work with artists to help them overcome issues including:

  • Stage Fright

  • Performance Enhancement 

  • Substance Abuse

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Depression

  • Anxiety Disorders and Stress Management

Working with Songwriters and Producers

Although from the outside the idea of writing songs and having hits seems like a glamorous life the day-to-day reality can be somewhat different. The pressure and competition around delivering/placing hit songs and being constantly creative is immense.


I use Mindfulness-Based Therapies and CBT Hypnotherapy to help songwriters and producers overcome issues including:

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Substance Abuse

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Depression 

  • Stress

  • Creative Block 

Music Industry Professionals

As with any competitive environment working in the music business can be all encompassing and a highly stressful lifestyle. Long working days and deadline demands can result in high levels of stress and associated problems.

Mindfulness for Creativity 

The relationship between regular meditation practice and an increase in creativity has been known for a long time. I teach mindfulness and meditation techniques to help clients learn how to step out of automatic pilot and quieten the chatter of the mind to give creative ideas the space to shine. Many people within the entertainment industry use meditation to help live a more fulfilling and productive life.

Please feel free to give me a call anytime to discuss how best I can help you.

Alexander James is a Mindfulness-Based Therapist and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist helping clients overcome addictions, stress, anxiety and depression.
