“I’ve always had a passion for making people smile and have been able to successfully and luckily do this through a business I have thrown my passion into. I’ve had my bouts of depression and anxiety and diving helps centre and calm me. It’s a reconnect that I’d like to share. Mindfulness and breathing is what diving is about. I see the positive psychological impact of people that come out from a dive every day. The smiles, laughs, excitement and even the grateful tears upon surfacing show that diving is a proven aid to reducing depression and anxiety.”
