SPEAK OUT: Radlett father launches anti-bullying campaign

 Published on: 21st December 2021   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A man from Radlett has launched his own anti-bullying campaign to help people suffering from bullying deal with their emotions.

It comes after the national Anti-bullying week on November 15-19, which encouraged people to be kind and think before they speak.

John Wright, a father from the village, decided to start a campaign to help with bullying after his daughter confided in him about being bullied in recent months.

He wanted to do something to help, after suffering from bullying himself at school in 1973 and overcoming it with a range of techniques. John has now decided to launch his own anti-bullying campaign in Hertfordshire and hopes to gain the support of Oliver Dowden MP.

John told RADLETTNews: “I am hoping to become a life coach, where I can help people with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts.

“I plan to tell my story about how I went from a dark place with suicidal thoughts to a happy fulfilled life and show how others can do the same. I want to start in Hertsmere helping local people and ultimately go global and make a difference.”

John, who is in the process of launching his campaign, wants to use the techniques of positive reinforcement, reframing and musical therapy to help with bullying – techniques he says have helped his daughter feel back to her happy self.
