This 90 minute workshop will discuss mental health – self-care strategies, resilience, how to be yourself and stop worrying what other people think and how to combat self-bullying/negative self-talk. Luke will delve deep in to his personal story and provide some mental health advice for parents.

Luke shows how having negative beliefs and being labelled early on in life, turned him from being a normal happy kid with a good upbringing, but resulted in him becoming an obese thug, addicted to drugs and alcohol, close to death numeorus times, and severely depressed and anxious. He then demonstrates how he turned it all around again to become extremely happy and successful.

You will leave inspired, and with simple yet extremely effective take-home strategies to improve your connection with your kids, and also improve your own mental health. This session allows for an open Q&A at the end.
