A former farmer is changing careers after going through in a revelatory mental health programme.
Tom Desborough, who worked with an agricultural firm in Swaffham, has trained as a mental health consultant on the Thrive programme.
The change came after he went through the six-week wellbeing programme himself last year.
“It made me realise that mental health is something I am very passionate about,” he said.
Mr Desborough has taken between five and 10 people through the programme so far, and has a goal to take on a new client every week.
The business is based at his home in Castle Acre but he hopes to take business premises in Norwich, with a plan to link up with other health-related professionals like personal trainers to offer a more holistic service to clients.
“I will have other people like personal trainers who I can recommend, and it works both ways,” he said.
