Nick Wilson is a veteran who has turned the negative into the positive. Serving in the British Army for 14 years, Nick eventually left in 2012 and went on to set up his own chauffeuring business. Unfortunately, during this time he began to struggle with depression and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, since his time in the forces Nick has been left living with chronic spinal pain due to seven pro lapsed discs and fibromyalgia. Nick has continually overcome adversity to reach the point at which he is today, battling through his depression and physical health problems to be the founder of his own mental health consultancy.
Nick's chauffeur business quickly became well known, shortly becoming a £1/4 million business over a two year period. Unfortunately not long after his business began to peak in success Nick suffered a mental breakdown, resulting in a suicide attempt. Fortunately, Nick survived and went on to spend therapeutic healing with Combat Stress. After time to recover Nick made the decision that he would not give in and he would instead fight back. He decided to sell his chauffeur business and have a fresh start. With a fresh outlook on life and a determined mindset, Nick decided that he would set up his own mental health consultancy company to help other people suffering from mental health issues.
After careful planning, Nick's business 360 Wellbeing was created. This organisation was established to help businesses provide support all-round, ranging from guidance to training and even one to one counselling. As of 2020, 360 Wellbeing became 360Wellbeing CIC (Community Interest Company) with a new vision to inspire and empower individuals, helping them to better manage their mental wellbeing. They additionally aim to promote prevention via education as well as helping people work on self-care and self-help.
Nick is very concerned with charity work, having raised over £75,000 for a number of causes. He has helped to plan a couple of prominent events as well, such as Basrah's first half marathon as well as a 1000 mile bike ride for the 60th D-Day commemorations. During 2018 and 2019 Nick also ran a number of campaigns that were notably successful. They had a high reach and impact rate, positively impacting around 250,000 people via the hashtags #Realmentalk and #Timetolisten.
Nick has a charismatic and bubbly personality, reflecting a friendly and humble man with an open and honest speaking style. With a plethora of personal experiences to share Nick is guaranteed to leave a lasting impact on your audience.
