Our BH Support Team

Peter Guest
Peter GuestExecutive Director
A serial entrepreneur with over 20 years of lived experience at the front line of emerging business markets, Peter has empowered over 2000 directly employed staff and 8 different companies to success, but not without sacrifice. Burning out in his early 40’s, he found himself in unchartered territory as a single lone father with underlying serious health issues and surrounded by litigation. Self-taught and highly experienced within the legal system, Peter is a high functioning emotionally intelligent superhero that never says no to a challenge and is there in your corner to support you, your family and your employment matters with a total dedication to legacy creation and a stronger together attitude.

“Looking back now, the first half of my life was a complete failure, a total disaster. I had everything I ever wished for and from the outside it looked fantastic but inside I was empty, it needed a massive change or I was over. By finding acceptance, I found the desire to support others in their hour of need and a richness that I never thought possible. Servitude brings resilience and recovery and is the true medicine for success”

Peter has re-built a beautiful blended family, living locally and now has significantly more happy days than sad ones, serving the local community with his vast legal and commercial experience in his capacity of Executive Director at BH Support, a Not for Profit Community Interest Company focused on helping to benefit the local community through lived experience peer support.

Leylah Honeyborne
Leylah HoneyborneExecutive Director
Following a highly successful international career spanning over 15 years and 3 continents, Leylah experienced a succession of tragic life events which caused a dramatic change and the lucrative career became past tense, sacrificed entirely to care for her husband through a life threatening illness and two young children. Navigating through the legal, financial and medical scenarios that unfolded over the next ten years has shaped a wordly wise consummate professional into a highly charismatic, empathic and kind individual that has centred the rest of her life toward supporting others in their time of need.

“After learning so much over the years about the practical difficulties we can come up against in this country while going through some of the most challenging and painful times in our lives, I decided that I wanted to use this experience to help other people to get through their tough times with the support that I wish had been there for us when we needed it the most”

Leylah is now happily raising her family locally and is our Executive Director at BH Support, a Not for Profit Community Interest Company focused on helping to benefit the local community through lived experience peer support.
