About Me

nickfrench

Thanks for visiting. As this is my personal site, there is not much here, however feel free to look around.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland I live about 20 minutes from the City Centre. Many people get confused however, because I have a non-regional accent, as I lived in Cheshire and Sussex when I was a wee lad. It wouldn't take you too long to guess that I have an interest in cars. Also remember, please don't take anything I say too seriously, as I am not always as serious as you might think!

I have spent many years running my own businesses and this has taken me on an interesting life journey of learning and experiences. Meeting people in different settings and with different needs is both challenging and fulfilling.

Additionally I volunteer several hours a week helping CSA and cult survivors. I also am invited to speak publicly around the UK on these subjects.

"Happy Survivor"

You may be wondering what I mean by that, well we all have our own story to tell and there are many who've had it worse than me. I survived child sexual abuse and recently saw my abuser sentenced, and am also a cult survivor. I have mental scars from both these which at times plague me, but for the most part can proudly say I have survived. [Read More]

I am also working my way to becoming a Thriver [read more]

Undue Influence

How would you spot undue influence? There are common features that demonstrate undue influence, which usually co-exist.

Phrases such as:

"We have the truth"

"I cannot communicate with you any longer"

"You can't trust outsiders"

Plus much more are indicators of undue influence. [Learn more here]

This includes organisations such Jehovah's Witnesses/Watchtower, Scientology or Mormon/Chuch of Latter Day Saints. If you are a member of any of these groups please do your research. For instance click on any of the following links to learn the facts that members of their respective groups won't tell you:

My DNA results

I was given a fabulous gift for my recent birthday, it was a DNA kit to find out where I am from. The results came through today, I was so excited and now just as curious as I was when I was started tracing my family tree:

Why I Left an Evangelical Cult by Dawn Smith

This is a truly inspiring presentation, with so many good and valid points made. It also had me in tears at the very end, I knew what she was going to say without her having to say it, incredibly moving and proves that my actively speaking out against cults will not go unnoticed.

Clever exiting of the JWs

I had the pleasure of meeting briefly yesterday Anthony Roberts in Edinburgh. Having never met or heard of him before I was interested to hear his story in exiting the cult of JW.org and he had stated he had a YouTube channel. Having just watched this this morning I am highly recommending anyone that is […]
