I am Helena Bourdillon, a survivor who has triumphed over mental illness and a freediver for Great Britain.
When I’m not in the water, I talk of hope, encouragement and resilience. I inspire people to not let age determine what they can and cannot do – You are never too old to work towards your dreams and to keep fighting, “anything is possible, for anyone.”
I spread my message in a number of ways including engaging and talking to businesses and their staff, schools and clubs. Promoting the importance of positive mental health in all walks of life.
Enhancing the basic breathing skills I learnt from freediving with further knowledge, I also share the importance and medical benefits of proper breathing on both mental and physical health.
