Personal Details

Did you know that managers' impact on their employees' mental health is often greater than that of doctors or therapists and on par with that of their partners? This just highlights how much the workplace can impact our lives, our mental health, and our well-being.

My mission is to help organisations prioritise well-being by creating psychologically safe spaces where everyone can thrive.

As someone who has lived with mental health conditions, I deeply understand the power of supportive environments. I am an MHFA Instructor and equip individuals and teams with the knowledge and skills to support one another with confidence.

With over eight years of experience leading charities, including five years as a chief executive, I have seen how compassionate leadership fosters growth. I helped increase a charity's income by 208%, and our team helped 1 in 10 households in our Borough.

My career has been focused on politics, mental health, and community empowerment. As an MHFA Instructor, I combine two passions: training with empathy and facilitating workplace mediation. I also offer impactful charity consultancy.

Accredited by MHFA England as an Independent Instructor, I offer a range of courses, from the 2-day MHFAider course to targeted manager training. With nearly 1,000 individuals trained and a 9.8/10 instructor rating, the impact is clear.

My own experiences with mental health, including EUPD and ADHD, contribute to delivering training with a lived experience insight. I aim to equip people with the skills to provide support, challenge stigma, build positive cultures, and empower personal recovery journeys.

If you're interested in creating a difference in your organization, I would be happy to discuss how my expertise can help you. To learn more, please visit my LinkedIn profile, email me, or check out my website.

The concepts and principles well very well-presented and Jake was exceptional at putting theory into practice by showcasing a multitude of examples and real-life cases from even his personal experiences. These have been invaluable to understand not only the principles of MHFAid but also how a real-life scenario may be played out and dealt with my a MHFAider first hand. I am very happy to have signed up for the MHFA course and I would indisputably recommend Jake as the course instructor. The course coupled with his delivery was an absolute recipe for success"
