Until 2008, Charlie had built a successful career in finance, qualified as a chartered accountant, obtained an MBA from a top Business School and, in his last role before setting up the charity, become the Finance Director of a large global publishing company.

At the time he didn t realise it was depression and had very little knowledge and understanding, he just realised he wasn t himself. Charlie managed to get through this very difficult period and wrote a book about the experience before finally deciding to set up the charity Climb Your Mountain.

He has delivered many courses, workshops and talks on the subject and he has spoken with and met hundreds of people who have had to face or are facing their own challenges in life. This book is a combination of those experiences, his own experiences and the research covered[K1] during the last few years with the aim of providing people with the knowledge, understanding and tools to help
