James Crawford

James Crawford started his career in South Africa in 1985 before moving to the City in London to work for the likes of Weatherall Green & Smith, Jones Lang Wootton and then several years at Savills, where he specialised in multi-million pound commercial acquisitions and sales.

 He developed severe depression, which he describes “the most desperate period I have ever experienced”, and says: “After a relatively high-profile career in the City I went from being a highly paid investment agent to nothing in a matter of months. Simply existing was the goal.”

He became a LionHeart ambassador to “highlight the risk we all run in our frantic lives”, and says he hopes sharing his story may encourage other professionals to seek help before they hit rock bottom.
