Episode 213: Health, Life, and Lifestyle Changes – Transitions for Great Success: James Van Der Walt

Subscribe: Spotify |

James Van Der Walt is a health and life coach specifically helping others with transitions. His career was in ICU nursing in Britain before coming to the US.

He found that after a diagnosis of sarcoidosis in his heart and lungs, he was much more accustomed to the nursing role rather than the patient role. Through this part of his life journey, he shared that it took him a couple of years to get to a point where his chronic illness wasn’t stopping him from doing what he needed to do and was actually encouraging him to live.

James took ownership of his health and through focusing on mental health, he overcame and took back his power to transition in his life. He was able to connect to himself and his purpose.

As a life coach now, he supports others as they go through life and all of its challenges and transitions.

Guest Bio: James Van Der Walt is the owner of VanDerWalt Coaching LLC in California.
He is a life transition and resilience coach who works with men and women 30 years and over, who feel disconnected and disjointed from who they truly want to be.

He has worked as a Specialist Registered Nurse in the U.K. for over 20 years, specializing in ICU nursing, organ donation and transplantation nursing.

Wanting to take his career to a new focused life purpose and direction, but continue using all his life experience to date, he became a certified Life and Health Coach at The Health Coach Institute.
