Rebecca McKenzie

My name is Rebecca (otherwise known as Bex) and I am a personal trainer / online coach at McKenzie Fitness, Glasgow. I started this as my own business at the start of the 1st Lockdown in March of 2020, registering officially in June of 2020.
I am currently 21 years old, I have been diagnosed with various mental health illnesses, including Social Anxiety (even though it might not seem like it with owning a business!), as well as being in recovery from Bulimia for just over 2 years that I suffered with since I was 16 years old.

I never had the support that I needed growing up, but I knew that I wasn’t going to tackle what was happening to me alone. I knew I needed help. I thank that 16-year old girl for making one of the best and smartest decisions of my life: I called mental health services. Still to this day I use them, and I knew that I had to be that service and that support to my clients in my business and others around me.

I am absolutely honoured to be part of the Mental Health Ambassador team for Y.E.N. I also run the social media Instagram and Twitter page for Y.E.N which is also a huge privilege for me.

I am so excited to meet all of you!

My Interests:

  • Fitness/bodybuilding/gym
  • Dogs
  • Cycling
  • Walking/Hill Climbing
  • Gaming
  • Cooking and Baking
  • Yoga
  • Music
  • Reading/Self Development

Hey everyone my name is Michael and I am the Founder and Managing Director of LET’s (Lived Experience Trauma Support Ltd) and established LETs after overcoming many traumatic events in my life including:

  • Child abuse
  • Witnessing my mother stab my father during a violent altercation
  • The violent murder of his father in 1996
  • Losing twins through miscarriage
  • Divorce
  • Surviving The Clutha Disaster in 2013
  • Diagnosis and subsequent of a potentially cancerous tumour
  • Frequent blackouts
  • Hospitalisation for a suspected stroke after a car crash
  • Mental Health Breakdown beginning in April 2017
  • Diagnosed with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
As a result of my recovery in May 2018 I subsequently left my previous career as a Director of a Housing Association and set up LETs with the aim of improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace. 
 
I am very proud to be a Mental Health and Well-being Ambassador for Y.E.N and I would love to offer help or just a chat to anyone that may need it as who doesn’t love a friendly blether? That’s what I am looking to be for yourself, a friend.
