Ian struggled with behavioural issues from as far back as he can remember, with severe anxiety and issues around emotion control. This led to many behaviours including fighting, binge eating and sudden weight loss and then into alcohol and cocaine abuse.

His view of himself as a damaged, potentially mentally unstable person led to many breakdowns and job losses. Since his introduction to A Slice of Happiness in 2019 he has found an awareness of his thoughts and corresponding emotions and how they shape his personal reality, and since August 2021 he has been employed as a Facilitator for A Slice of Happiness to help support beneficiaries struggling with the same challenges he used to have.
