Additional Resume Info (submitted by page owner via IMDb Resume)
- * Born and raised in England, Jamie has been through it all; he survived boarding school, endured disastrous relationships, excelled as an 80s pop drummer, hobnobbed with Royalty, you name it
hes witnessed it all.
His own experiences have helped him to empathize and assist others with extraordinary situations.
At 18, he attended Pepperdine University in Malibu and gained his BSc in Sports Medicine, graduating in 1986.
At the tender age of 21, Jamie made his name as a session drummer in LA, creating a platform to express his electronic percussive skills at the chic after hours downtown club Vertigo, where he would entertain the crowds as their house drummer every weekend. It was during those late-80′s that he made his connections with such artists as Thomas Dolby, Pet Shop Boys, George Michael and Tori Amos.
In 1990, armed with an MA in Marriage & Family Therapy and a busy internship, he met the British pop duo Go West who became his closest friends throughout the 90's. Jamie would live a double life as a shrink by day and pop drummer at night on mini-promo tours with Go West who were enjoying the smash hit King of Wishful Thinking from the Pretty Woman movie soundtrack.
It was through teaching that he was able to discover his true purpose - to generate impact in peoples lives by shifting their focus, unlocking their potential and transforming how they function in the world.
At one time, Jamie had 4 videos in rotation on MTV and VH1 as well as making numerous TV appearances and live shows while building his private practice in Encino, and none of his patients ever discovering his double identity!
With his rock star days firmly behind him, Jamie then built a thriving reputation as a licensed psychotherapist, teacher, mentor and leadership trainer.
His Zen like approach to personal coaching combined with his British sense of humor and refreshing straight talk, has helped hundreds of teens, adults, couples, executives and teams change their entire perspectives of work and life.
In 2005, he was cast as a real-life marriage therapist in the FOX show Marriage 911 and helped to save a marriage on the rocks in just one week. The couple is still thriving, years later.
Jamie was most recently featured as Therapist and Life Coach to Brad Womack on Season 15 of The Bachelor on ABC.
His personal philosophy has always been to never ask anyone to do anything he had not first done himself.
So, after 20 years of classic therapy burn-out, tired of endless intellectual processing and self-examination, he closed his practice, moved out of his office and reinvented himself as An Unconventional Coach. Whereas traditional therapy delves into the lengthy processing of feelings, interpretations and insight, Jamies refreshing approach to coaching focuses on cutting through stories, uncovering the truth and providing practical tools to living more authentically.
