My apologies for the self-promotion; an hour-long documentary will screen this Sunday (31 July) on the TVNZ program, SUNDAY, about my journey into the darkness and back out again.
Yes, this is about me, but it also about you - those of you who have been down in the depths or may still be there.
My desire is that you will see this documentary as one of hope, which is the intention of putting myself out there. I was lucky, I climbed back out of my deep dark hole, I honestly wish and pray that you can do the same.
The following day, Monday the 1st August, my book will be published – 'Behind the Tape'. It is an insight into policing, into crisis negotiating, and how quickly my life spiralled out of control because I let it. As I now know it was within my control to avoid it, hindsight is a wonderful thing.
The appendices in the book are filled with information on what I learned on my journey and ways to avoid the mistakes that I made. If nothing else, please read these.
Thanks you for taking the time to view this post, I sincerely wish you nothing but the best in all that you do. Kia kaha - be strong, keep going.
