Hazel Nathaniel-James, BA (hons), MSc, MCIPD, IMA, PCC

Hazel began her career in the Corporate world after studying at the London School of Economics. Focussing on people development after specialising in Stress management kept her on her toes for the best part of 22 years in Human Resource Management where she travelled extensively across Europe and Asia.

In 2004, she felt the need to develop herself further and enrolled at OneSpirit Interfaith Seminary London. She is now an ordained minister. Further studies continued with New Ventures West San Francisco and Third Space coaching UK. She is also an accredited Integral Development coach. An inspirational speaker, she feels passionate about helping others to heal emotionally and spiritually. Hazel is a meditation teacher and a student of neuroscience; combining the wisdom of east and west in her unique brand of coaching others.

An Examined Life is her vision and was set up in 2016. Her work is intended to empower people to empower themselves to live more meaningful, authentic lives. She runs a busy one-on-one practice, where she feels honoured to help others give birth to themselves through relinquishing self-sabotage issues, healing their emotional wounds, addressing hidden causes of pain and to help move beyond repetitive patterns of dysfunction.

Hazel also leads retreats on different healing and personal empowerment themes for like-minded and like-hearted people to come together to learn, grow and heal.

Hazel sees herself as a student of life where attendance at regular retreats nourish her psychological, emotional and spiritual evolvement. She also views her love of adventure sports as retreats for her soul, where she partakes in kayacking, mountain biking, white water rafting and horse riding. She is incredibly partial to working out regularly and has a penchant for hatha yoga. She plays the saxophone badly but adores jazz and soul music and loves to dance. Her ability to laugh at the ridiculous keeps her grounded and centred.

Hazel lives in London with her two amazing kids (young adults, but kids to their mum).”
