How it started

Alex founded “P.M.A. Obviously!” in November 2016, after being officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder, type 1. This was the turning point in his life, and after accepting his condition, wanted to share his experiences with others, in the hope that they too could start the road to recovery. “If you can manage the illness and stay in control, you can start to enjoy life again, and make the most of every life experience. It all starts with a P.M.A. Obviously!”

...how it's going!

Having spoken across the UK for many years, Alex continues to bring with him a wealth of experience and undeniable compassion for others who share his same struggles, and more. After all his hard work, he has recently been nationally recognised in the UK by winning an award for “Lifestyle Coach of the Year”, for the South England region at the latest Prestige Awards 21/2022. He hopes to continue on his winning path for many more years to come!
