John Binns was a high-flying partner at the consultancy firm Deloitte when he started to experience the signs of stress. He tried to push on through, but this led to a breakdown. He says high achievers in particular should beware of the rigid demands they place on themselves, saying ‘I must’ or ‘I can’t’. John is now on the board of the charity Mind, a qualified CBT coach, and advises companies on how to improve mental health among their staff, working together with many City firms.
