Prevention? Or Cure?
I used to believe that prevention was better than cure… 75% of mental illnesses start before a child reaches their 18th birthday, and 50% of mental health problems in adult life (excluding dementia) take root before the age of 15. Early intervention IS vital, which is why I partner with a number of organisations to motivate and engage young learners within education – to forge the best possible foundations for our future generations.
After dedicating more than 25 years to senior management roles within Retail and Hospitality (culminating in the prestigious role of Masterclass Trainer for Lillywhites, in Piccadilly Circus) I learned that not only is life short, but that WE WAIT TOO LONG TO START LIVING!
When you’re stuck in that corporate rut, with no light at the end of that tunnel, it is simply too late for “prevention“. From my perspective – and for countless others who now find themselves in the same boat – it was all about discovering the cure – the elusive elixir.
It’s time to do more of what you love with who you love to do it with!
Bob Proctor – who has studied human potential for over 58 years – personally shared with me his secrets to success and prosperity. Through his teachings – and those of Brendon Burchard, Dr Richard Bandler and Tony Robbins (amongst others) – I was able to cast off my corporate shackles, “follow my bliss“, and establish an independent coaching and consulting practice. I have since been honoured with a number of awards, including “The UK’s Most Outstanding Life Coach” in The Corporate Excellence Awards, 2019, and twice being awarded “UK Independent Life Coach of the Year” in The ACQ5 Global Awards, 2018 and 2019.
Following the loss of my father to suicide, my beliefs shifted to accommodate the concept that prevention and cure are essentially two sides of the same coin. Bob Proctor taught me about “The Law of Polarity” – one cannot exist without the other. With regards to prevention and cure, I believe that there is a valid case for both – each has its own merits. One is not necessarily more important than the other – it is all about collaboration rather than competition.
I specialise in stress reduction, work-life balance and confidence coaching. The “cure” to the current corporate epidemic of stress and burnout. As a Mental Health Instructor, accredited by The Royal Society for Public Health, I also strive to promote prevention and early intervention.
We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health, and – through the power of education – we can eradicate the stigma – through prevention AND cure!
“…the greatest of all riches can be evaluated only in terms of lasting friendships, sympathy and understanding between business associates, and introspective harmony which brings one peace of mind measurable only in spiritual values.” (Napoleon Hill, “Think and Grow Rich“)
