My mission is to maximise the potential and performance of the next generation
Background and experience
In February 2012, I was at death's door. I lost connection with myself, others and the world around me. I destroyed my relationship with food, exercise, my body and ultimately myself. I couldn't see a way out, but knew the traditional system was harming more than serving me. In August 2012, I decided to discharge myself from CAMHS, and use exactly what got me into my hole, to get me out. I flipped the switch, drew a line and pressed the 're-boot' button. It was time to re-connect with Jack. In November 2012, I ran a 10KM for Beat, the largest Eating Disorders Charity in the UK. In March 2013, I ran a half-marathon. In April 2013, I started to campaign for more awareness around mental health and wellbeing. Since then, I have had the opportunity to share my story and experiences with schools, universities and organisations such as the BBC, Channel 4, Sky News, DePaul Charity, Oxford University, UCL, Imperial College London, KPMG, QE Boys, Wavestone Consulting, The Mix and more. In 2014, I joined one of the Big 4 as an external auditor and data analyst. I decided to leave the corporate world in 2017 to pursue a mission that I'm deeply passionate about, to empower the next generation to thrive and unleash their potential. In October 2017, I ran the Amsterdam Marathon to mark an end to a chapter of re-balancing, calibrating and connecting with myself, but also to a mark a start of a new chapter - to use my journey, experiences and training to create safe, collaborative and powerful spaces for the next generation to build the self-awareness, skills and tools to develop, grow and thrive. Since 2017, I have worked with hundreds of young people in 1-2-1 and group formats, and, the mission continues...
