Show Notes

In this episode of The Agile Career Podcast I interview David Beeney, founder of Breaking The Silence. In the interview David talks about his journey from a commercial role in the publishing industry to his role as a counsellor and champion for good mental health. He describes the challenges he faced, particulary his mental health, and how this lead him to find his purpose and establish himself as a counsellor.

David shares how his coping mechanisms set the foundation for the transferable skills he built and he also shares some insight into how we can improve our mindset.

Key Takeaways

  • Be yourself
  • Be kinder to yourself and to others
  • Transition is not as difficult as you think
  • You might already have many of the transferables skills you need, to drive a simple mindset shift
