About J Stamatelos :
James J. Stamatelos is a professional coach who helps people break out of fear so they can share their gifts with the world. His work focuses on “anxious insecurity” - a chronic feeling of being "not enough" regardless of how much we achieve.
He personally fought this battle, has spent a decade helping those who fight it now, and focuses on evidence-based and data-informed interventions.
I almost lost my life to severe self-loathing and insecurity and have dedicated the last 10 years of my life to answering two key questions: 1) why do so many of us feel like we're chronically "not enough" no matter how much we achieve, and 2) what interventions actually work in fixing this? I've spent years reading academic papers, working with clients, and collaborating with others. After all this time, one solution stands consistent - developing a healthy self-relationship founded on self-compassion is the best way forward. However, this isn't always easy to do - and for many of us, the idea of it can even feel like a threat.
Before becoming a coach, I worked in counter-terrorism and emergency response. I specialize in working with men, previously ran the only secular men's group in Pittsburgh, and believe many of our struggles come back to men being unable to process their emotions in a healthy way.
