“It’s okay to be not okay, it really is!” Franky has struggled with his mental health in the past and is an avid supporter of campaigns such as Movember to encourage people to talk about mental health issues and seek support. In particular, Franky is passionate about breaking the stigma around men’s mental health, following horrific statistics that highlight one man around the world loses his life to suicide every single minute of every day. The cause is extremely close to Franky’s heart and we are sure that hearing his story will help us all do a little bit more to reduce the number men taking their own lives.


Appearing to be living the dream life and having a great career, Clare Downham progressed rapidly through the primary school leadership ranks to attain her first headship at the age of 39 and moved to her second headship just 4 years later. But the pressure of ‘doing too much’ eventually took its toll causing a period of severe depression and a year off work.
Clare’s story of her journey from a twenty-year career in Education, through a nervous breakdown and into an exciting new vocation as a Hypnotherapist and Wellbeing Teacher will give you an inspirational insight into how something amazing can be born out of a dark period of life especially if you trust that it will.
During her year of healing, Clare sought help from many sources including our amazing NHS and a number of complementary therapists. As well as this, she began seeking out ways to increase her wellbeing and happiness and now has a wealth of knowledge about tools you can use to support your own healing and generally help you feel better every day.
