I'm James, I'm a former physicist (PhD, Nottingham, 2007) and author of "PhD: An Uncommon Guide to Research, Writing & PhD Life".
Since 2010, I've been helping PhD students all over the world overcome barriers in their research and writing
My strategies have helped thousands of PhD students just like you to build confidence, write better and finish on time

It's easy to end up so stressed that you feel you can't take a moment to relax.But whenever you feel you can't afford a moment to relax or do something for yourself, that's when you really need to!You don't need to do anything big. Sometimes it's enough to just take 10 minutes and sit under a tree, or close your eyes for a minute and feel your breath.
