I share my own journey with you (which still has its challenges) and I give you SIMPLE tools to manage your mental wellbeing and get YOU started on your own journey of personal development!
As a self-confessed ‘every day’ lad, my goal is to make talking about mental health normal, particularly for men.
My goal is to make managing your mental wellbeing and working on Personal Development SIMPLE. Easy, understandable tools you can use each day.
My goal is to make these topics real, and RELATABLE. I believe this industry is full of ‘over the top’ coaches. I dislike terms such as ‘Turbocharge your life‘ or ‘Bulletproof mindset.’ I make people understand that self-help can be positively utilised by anybody, as a means of improving their mental wellbeing and going on their own journey of personal development at ANY STAGE in their lives.
If you are just GETTING STARTED then my work is perfect for you.
Joe came along to Beyond Housing for Mental health awareness week. He told us his inspirational story about how being inspired by his own mental health struggles. He decided he wanted to make the world a better place. He takes a unique approach to mental health discussions. He shared some great tips on improving mindset and wellbeing which was really beneficial for staff. Joe was very accommodating and took the time to speak to individuals who related with him and his experiences. He had a listening ear and was fantastic to work with. I highly recommend working with Joe.”

Joe delivered to youth shack for all of our cohorts and we will keep inviting him back. He is very down to earth and can connect with young people to support them to think of their personal goals, helping to improve their self-esteem and gives his own personal experienced which they really respond to. Everyone leaves the session with a range of personal goals and how to achieve them. I would recommend Joe to others.

Joe delivered a number of well-being and motivational workshops to our construction students. The feedback from the students was very positive and helped refocus their mindset around their wellbeing, future learning and career prospects. Joe had an exceptional rapport and interaction with the students as he could relate to many of them, however gave them sound advice and guidance of how they can overcome barriers and turn things around, giving them a more positive and focused outlook in life and their goals. Great work Joe, thanks again for working with our students
Debbie Hill – Lead for Welfare Hartlepool College FE
During mental health awareness week, Joe came to talk to 150 of our male students at the sixth form. Joe was brilliant and the feedback from students was amazing. The interactive one hour session focused on male mental health and wellbeing particularly strategies for positive wellbeing, self-motivation and personal growth. The students said this was the best talk they’d had at the college. Additionally, they said because Joe was so friendly, funny and approachable they felt they could relate to him much more than a teaching, making the session much more meaningful.
Georgina Crook – Assistant Director of Sixth Form
Every topic these lads discuss are so relatable and something we can all take a lesson from. Like Joe says we are quick to compare our lives through the lens of social media, but we need to remind ourselves social media isn't real, it doesn't show a true reflection of people's lives and no one shares their down days. Always be in competition with yourself and no one else. Be inspired not jealous

I have for many years had my mental health challenges. I personally felt very ‘lost’ in life. I achieved a masters degree at any early age but I felt deeply unfulfilled. Even before 30 I had job hopped more times than I could count on ten hands. I was depressed and lacking direction.
I found self-help which has helped me to take a proactive approach for managing my mental wellbeing and taken me on a journey of personal development.
I share these tools in the hope to inspire and teach other people on their own path.
