Book me as a speaker
and I will cover delicate issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and debt in a manner that is positive, relaxed and encouraging.
Passionate about raising awareness to mental health and kicking out the stigma attached to mental illness, my talk packages can be tailored to suit most audiences. Time scales for all presentations are easily adapted too.
I have been working as an inspirational speaker under the name A Compassionate Voice since September 2013. Since this time, mental health seminars, conferences, festivals and business network meetings have all booked me as a speaker to share my story.
Either as a no-frills speaker, or with the aid of slides, images, verse and music – my experiences, sensitivity and humour will take the audience on a surprising, yet inspirational journey.
Thirty Years of Silence
More recently, High Schools and Colleges have booked me as a speaker. Mental health issues can be a very difficult subject to broach, but hearing from someone who has lived-in experiences offers much more understanding to students. My story also highlights to younger people the ramifications of not speaking out and living in silence.
