I’ve overcome chronic anxiety, healed an eating disorder, put my broken-heart back together, got out of debt, written bestselling books (despite dyslexia), created four meditation and mentoring techniques and even become a monk. Here’s my story…
ANXIOUS + LONELY
I lived with an underlying angst and anxiety. I felt I was unworthy of love and alone in the world. Existing like an island, I believed I was bothering people with my mere presence and could even feel lonely in a room full of people. Nobody knew though, as I kept it a secret...
STARVED + SLEEP DEPRIVED
I quietly persisted with an eating disorder. If I was stressed or dealing with a problem - which happened often - I couldn’t eat for the life of me. I would end up way too skinny and I’d have no energy. To make matters worse, I couldn’t sleep with my mind working overtime with worry…
HOME EMPTY HEARTED
I headed to Australia in search of love and my happy-ever-after. Only to return home early, single and broke, and forced to get a temporary job doing data entry. I lacked purpose, passion and started searching for meaningful work. My life changed the day I met a Life Coach - who happened to sit down at the desk opposite me! That same weekend I had spent the inheritance that I’d received from my grandmother to train as one myself…
BLOCKED BY TOXIC BELIEFS
Despite graduating at a top of my class, I noticed that even when my clients agreed upon strong success strategies, many couldn’t apply them. Their past ‘stuff’, emotions, toxic beliefs and habits were all preventing them, big time. Wanting to work deeper, I added to my toolkit and after a few years of successfully offering coaching with a therapeutic twist, I got an invitation that resulted in me accidentally creating my own method...
ACCIDENTAL MIND DETOX
I was invited to work on a detox retreat in Spain. Many of the detoxers wanted my help with health concerns and so, not knowing if it would work, we explored the possible mind-based causes. Remarkably, many of the retreat participants healed after detoxing their mind, and a new method was accidentally born...
Soon after creating what was becoming known as ‘Mind Detox’, I was asked to use my method on three TV series called The Spa of Embarrassing Illnesses. The shows ended up being aired in 30+ countries! The TV exposure and book deals helped to get the word out and I did hundreds of Mind Detox's worldwide...
FEELING LIKE A FRAUD
By this point I had successfully used Mind Detox to heal my eating disorder and insomnia, overcome my relationship hurts, get out of debt and gain the confidence to not let dyslexia stop me from writing books. But despite being on TV and helping lots of people, I still secretly lacked any kind of consistent inner peace. In short, I felt like a failure and a fraud and a million miles from the peaceful person I wanted to be…
MEDITATING WITH MONKS
My frustration played a part in my girlfriend soon leaving; along with our joint business. Observing my upset, it was around that time a mate suggested I tried meditation. After some reluctance, I learnt and soon started experiencing a surprising amount of peace. So much so that I went off to meditate for several months, ending up becoming a monk. Soon after, I started teaching meditation...
MIND CALM DOWNLOAD
Excited to discover that peace was easier than I had always thought, I soon saw the need for modern ways to meditate that fitted into daily life and delivered quick results. Not long after that, the Mind Calm meditation technique came to me as an instant ‘download’ when I was meditating one day. Within a year Hay House publishing asked me to write a book on the technique and it started being used internationally...
PEACE IS THE SOLUTION
A couple years later, the Body Calm technique came to me too and then most recently Calm Cure. Collectively, alongside Mind Detox, they are now known as ‘Calmology’ and offer a complete system to clear and calm the mind, help the body to heal and stay healthy and discover that peace is not only possible but the silent solution for all problems and real and lasting life success.
THE CALM COLLECTIVE
Today I mentor people with Calmology, train Calmologists via my academy and continue writing - having now published 12 books. To make the teachings and techniques accessible to anyone, I opened the Calm Clan in 2016, which is making wisdom mobile by offering online meditations, courses and mentoring to members - so that we can all heal for real, benefit from meditation, explore our spiritual side and enjoy the best life humanly possible.
