Over the last year the Kintsugi Hope team have been opening
up honest conversations around wellbeing through conferences,
tours, seminars, breakfast meetings, and preaching.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis and the most recent government
guidelines on social distancing, booking talks has been
temporarily suspended. Kintsugi Hope is working hard to
provide some content that churches and charities can use
to spread a message of hope in this time. Stay tuned
for more details.
Many Churches and Charities are publishing their talks online and
via live-streaming. Take a look at your local churches websites
to see how you can access these.
The team have spoken to over 15,000 people in the last year
alone. The feedback into the office has been very moving, and we have had so many comments; but here are just a few:
“I just wanted to say how amazing Kintsugi Hope is...
I went to your first conference at Skylark Church... it was
amazing... I have hidden and avoided my friends for years...

“My Uncle attended all of your talks and came out
of the week with a new insight into himself. I attended your
perfectionism talk and your talk at the main event on
Wednesday evening. It was a revelation! I am so grateful to
you for the lifting of my guilt and shame over my many issues
that have dogged at my heels for so many years, both physical
and mental health issues that I have always seen as a barrier
to my life rather than a new way to live in my life. You
reduced me to tears in a very good way.”
“Having been struggling with a few issues
recently, I sat through your Tackling Anxiety talk with
tears trickling down my face. It was a release at the
realization that I'm not going mad, I just have anxiety
issues. Once we know these things, we can deal with it and
As well as touring the country and raising awareness through
talks and speaking, Patrick and his team have contributed to
over 30 radio interviews, written articles on
subjects such as removing stigma, coping with grief, honesty
and vulnerability, etc, in blogs and newspaper such as The
Times, Sorted Magazine, Youthwork Magazine and many others.

The Bouncing Forwards tour is a fantastic opportunity to join Patrick Regan OBE and the Kintsugi Hope
team for a relaxed evening of conversation and live music. Patrick will be exploring themes from his
latest book “Bouncing Forwards” such as courage, resilience and change. This is an ideal
opportunity to create an event which local churches, small groups and members of your
community could come along to be challenged, refreshed and inspired.
