Justyn Larcombe Talk

3rd June 2017

3rd June at 1pm

Justyn is the son of the writer and speaker Jennifer Rees Larcombe and grandson of the evangelist Tom Rees. After a highly successful career in the British Army Justyn Rees Larcombe had an equally glittering and well-rewarded career in the City. He had everything. Stunningly successful in the world of insurance, he was being fast tracked for further promotion in a global company. He had wealth, a big house, a Porsche, a Mercedes. He had a beautiful wife and three sons. He lost it all through an addiction to online gambling, blowing three quarters of a million pounds in three years. Realising he could fall no further, he turned back to Christ and, in the space of two years, found incredible restoration. In his first title, Tails I Lose, Justyn tells his ‘riches to rags, to reconciliation story’ with compelling, and often shocking honesty. Now Justyn is a public speaker, media commentator, advisor to Government, the medical profession and leading national think tanks on the issues of problem gambling and addiction in general. He has successfully campaigned for changes in the laws relating to gambling. He leads a Christ based addiction recovery course, offering both group and one to one counselling and is a trained debt and money adviser.
