A quick introduction to myself, my name is George, I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and mental health difficulties from a young age, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of the Breathe family for over 10 years!
Over the last 10 years, I’ve risen through the ranks at Breathe Arts Health Research. My first experience was as a Breathe Magic Participant and then Young Magician, Mentor and now I am a Breathe Magic Ambassador. It has been an amazing journey.
I was fortunate enough to be on one of the first-ever Breathe Magic Intensive Therapy Programmes (10 years ago!). But before this, my education and social life were suffering and I had a lack of confidence, anxiety, and depression. I refused to engage with strangers, and I was absolutely terrified of getting public transport. I had very little interest in extracurricular activities, I simply found them boring. But when I was introduced to the Breathe Magic concept it instantly sparked my interest. At that point, I had no idea the immense opportunity that was waiting for me and how it would positively impact my life over the following years.
