In today's episode, I met with someone who has a large well of wisdom learned from a journey of incredible pain and adversity. A humble, heart-centred person who walks his talk and has found a way to heal his self-perception and help countless others.
He's a maverick of passion and uniqueness, and brings all of his gifts into his world of mental health well-being and helping organisations evolve through focussing on our unique individuality.
Here's a summary of what we discussed:
5:50 - who he serves
8:10 - experts aren't created overnight
12:23 - academic vs experiential expertise
13:30 - his background & journey
31:00 - celebrate the 1/2 step
53:45 - the outlaw or maverick
and much more...

Craig Fearn, CEO & Founder Lighthouse Mentoring

It is my passion to support others. I have personally lived, and still live with, the looming spectre of mental health difficulties, and know first-hand the importance of early intervention.
Having suffered personally from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress and Chronic Cluster Headaches, I have an excellent understanding of the challenges faced by others. I come from a position of empathy, not simply sympathy.
