Founder / Director / CEO
Fisky is a Poet, Rapper, Public Speaker and founder of Mind Over Matter.
Fisky started MoM the day he got sober after a twenty year battle with grief and addiction.
Since then, he has watched it become the platform he never had. The event has helped people with depression, addiction, anxiety and often opening difficult conversations. Growing organically, MoM has collaborated with Tedx, The Lost Lectures, The Tavistock & Portman, London’s City Hall and in April 2019 hosted their first international event in Melbourne, Australia.
He has also worked with the BBC and delivered speeches at The London Academy of Excellence and ITV.
Writing has always been Fisky’s therapist. He draws on his twenty years lived experience with depression and addiction to raise awareness, let people know they aren’t alone, process his own struggles and project positive energy.
Fisky is also part of the #FLOpoet collective mentored by Natalie ‘Floacist’ Stewart, founding member of Multi Grammy nominated Neo Soul group, Floetry.

Director / Secretary / Resident Psychotherapist
Anna Sinski is a BACP-accredited integrative psychotherapist, a published poet and a spoken word artist. Writing poetry since she could hold a pen, she uses her pieces for expression and healing, but also to raise awareness of various issues including mental health. A lot of her poetry relates to her own experiences with grief, anxiety and disordered eating. Creative self-expression is also something she uses as part of her integrative approach to therapy.
Anna will be attending as many events as she is able, to provide support and advice should any of our audience members be triggered by any of the subjects that come up during performances. MoM is a recreational space with therapeutic benefits and we believe having Anna as part of our team makes the safe space even safer.
Anna has a small therapy private practice in central London and online, where she helps individuals dealing with various mental health issues.
