About Me

Who Am I?

 

I help people understand mental health, mental illness, the importance of mental health recovery and suicide prevention first aid. You’ll establish your own healthy boundaries and building relationships that are designed to increase confidence, self esteem an self worth through 1-1 mentoring. I also run workshops and talks for Schools, Colleges, Universities, organisations, professionals, individuals and groups wanting to learn more about Mental Health , Mental Health Recovery and Suicide Prevention.
.
In 2015 I experienced a nervous breakdown whilst at work, I chose to use the time I was signed off to walk the entire length of Britain to help myself, and raise awareness for Mental Health and homelessness.
.
Whilst walking, I spoke to businesses & organisations about what help and support they give their staff; it was very limited, largely due to the fact many were inexperienced or uneducated in Mental Health support.
.
I could see there was a gap in the market for mental health recovery education and suicide prevention first aid training from a lived experience perspective.
.
In the U.K 1-4 People will experience a common mental health related issue (such as Anxiety or Depression) every year.
.
It is more important than ever to understand what mental health is, and be able to identify the signs and symptoms of mental ill health, and to provide the correct support and guidance to those who are affected.

Some of my bigest life’s achievments came after losing everything, including;
