Wim Hof changed my life. I found inner peace after years of anxiety from early trauma. This is why I became a Wim Hof Instructor.

My favourite mantra is, “The strongest swords are made in the hottest furnaces.” I am a clinical psychologist and work with adults (over 18yrs to 100yrs) with Complex PTSD and PTSD. I currently work in a no fee psychology clinic Townsville, Qld, Australia. I am a certified breath coach through the Wim Hof Academy and the Buteyko Clinic. I have a doctorate in clinical psychology, my thesis is called "Why Don't You Just Stop Drinking?" I researched the barriers to recovering from addiction, the main barrier is trauma. Trauma and substance use go together like twins. I also trained online over 9 months with the Boston Trauma Centre when the renowned Dr Bessel Van Der Kolk was medical director. I am trained in EMDR,  Brainspotting, Group Brainspotting, Neurofeedback and NLP. I am a Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) Instructor, a Heart Math Resilience Advantage Instructor and have a coaching certification from Cambridge University. I have also completed Level 3 Gottman couples counselling. I am currently training as a yoga teacher.

I am originally from Liverpool, North of England and have lived in Queensland Australia for over 10 years. Before relocating to Australia I was a trainee high intensity therapist with the IAPT programme provided by the UK Government. I have been self employed for most of my life and have also served as a police officer and in the Royal Navy. I once hitch-hiked 10,000 miles around the USA – 5000 miles were with no money as I lost everything in the first week but carried on, every day amazing families picked me up and I stayed with them - such amazing kindness.
