I am dedicated to helping people create forward movement in their healing journeys. Utilizing ancient traditional native games as a unique method of reintegrating cultural identity by combining therapeutic counselling techniques with traditional elder teachings to create a balanced program…


Mike James is a single parent from Skowkale First Nation located in Chilliwack, B.C.  Canada.  He is very effective at delivering highly motivational self help programs and has being doing so since 1985.

Although Mike utilizes various therapeutic counseling techniques to help participants deal with issues, his programs carry a strong Cultural foundation, this is to encourage participants to become reconnected with their own Cultural Identity; he believes this is the key to building a happy and healthy future.

Mike designs and delivers programs that are “tailor fit” to address specific needs of the communities he works in; contents may include items such as: Ancient Traditional Native Games, Alcohol and Drugs, Suicide Prevention, Communication, Residential School issues, Stress Management, Youth Innovations, Coping with Crisis and many more.

Mike has worked in various jobs throughout his life time but when he became involved in the helping field, he found his “calling”; Mike has a unique ability to connect with the people he works with and is very effective in helping participants become motivated in their healing journey.

Mike’s most gratifying reward is when he witnesses the positive effect he has on people’s lives; in the closing circles, he often hears, “thank you Mike, you saved my life”.

The Creator has offered me the ability to help people in need; my prayers go out to each and every one of these people, if I can help your community, I would like to offer my services to help build a healthier future for our society.
