Eddie – Chief Officer
Hi, I founded Anxious Minds with Kathlean Redpath in 2015 after leaving the Armed Forces after 22 years’ service on my war pension, due to a lack of early intervention and provisional support for mental health, stemming from my personal experiences with anxiety, depression and PTSD. This gives us both a detailed understanding of the reality of mental health and a passionate desire to improve the situation. Edward holds a level 7 in Leadership and Management, diploma in psychotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy and is a Master Practitioner in NLP and an expert by experience.
