Piers Day, a seasoned professional coach, counsellor, and therapist, is marking three decades of dedicated service in the field of mental health and well-being. Piers, specialising in helping individuals overcome dark thoughts, low self-esteem, and depression, has recently launched a groundbreaking new service aimed at getting people back to work after prolonged absences due to mental health challenges.
Piers Day, with an impressive 25-year career as a coach and counsellor, has been instrumental in saving lives and aiding the recovery of countless individuals and their families. Utilising blended therapies, including hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and meditation, Piers has successfully helped clients nationally through remote sessions or in-person clinic consultations.
The journey began in 1992 when Piers encountered a friend who had been laid off due to depression. Tragically, just two days later, this friend took his own life, marking the third person in Piers’ life to succumb to such circumstances. The devastating event propelled Piers to delve into the understanding of mental health and suicide prevention, becoming a driving force in his mission to save lives and alleviate the suffering of families left behind.
Piers, who spent 20 years in the property industry in London, redirected his career path in 1992 to explore the field of mental health. Enrolling in the Cambridge College of Hypnotherapy and embarking on journeys to Australia, the US, and Thailand to acquire cutting-edge therapeutic techniques, Piers earned multiple diplomas and invested over £100,000 in study and personal development.
Today, Piers stands as a beacon of hope, having worked tirelessly to improve mindsets and educate people that medication is not the sole solution for recovery. With an unwavering commitment to self-improvement, Piers continues to train others to combat depression and dark thoughts, ultimately saving lives and reducing the immense suffering experienced by those left behind.
In a world where stress, depression, and anxiety accounted for 17 million days of work absence in the UK in 2021–2022, according to the Health & Safety Executive, Piers emphasises the importance of seeking well-qualified help for mental health, just as one would for physical fitness or car maintenance.
