    About James

    I started my first business with friends at University aged 20, we raised $1m in Angel and VC and never went back to uni. 

    In the process of building the business, raising investment and subsequently dealing with it's failure. I lost sight of who I was. I burnt out, suffered with anxiety and had regular panic attacks. I'd pushed myself to the limit for 3 years working on something I wasn't truly passionate about and lived my life as someone else in my quest to impress others. 

    Mental health became important to me as I reflected on how my mental health had been affected and how I saw many others; either suffering in silence or just drifting through life. 

    I set up Sanctus to create the brand that I wish had existed for me and for millions of others. A brand that aims to redefine mental health as a whole and help people become the best version of themselves. We do this through coaching, community events and working with businesses where we create the environment for people to openly talk about mental health.

    Our big goal is to put the world's first mental health Gym on the high street and make mental fitness as mainstream physical fitness.
