Individual-Speakers-Quote

I whole-heartedly recommend Rhys to provide a real world, relatable story on mental health and substance addiction that hits home and hits hard. His story from peaks to depths and coming through the other side is powerful and thought-provoking. Rhys tells it like it is, through his experiences, which really help provide solutions and coping mechanisms that all men and women can relate to in todays modern world. I would not hesitate to book Rhys on a corporate / wellbeing event as his story will help you and the people you support.
