About Josie Thomson
Josie Thomson is a multi-award winning coach, speaker, trainer, business owner, author and single mother of two.
Josie knows what it’s like to face the odds as a two-time cancer survivor and has proven that odds can be beaten. She speaks from first hand experience about bouncing forward with a ‘post-traumatic growth disorder’ and about how to reframe adversity into opportunities for triumph and success.
She is living proof that winning and succeeding in life is a mindset, and she teaches others how to embrace change due to their encounters with life challenges, sometimes in radically positive ways.

Would not have happened without the life coaching from Josie
It is not always your mental health that is the problem but the situation that needs to change. I have worked in so many careers and in particular as a police woman, nurse and now a doctor. I was unfortunately like so many of the people that I looked after in my career, and allowed myself somehow to become abused mentally and lost all self esteem to the point where I had nearly lost hope to find the strength to carry on. I was very fortunate to come across our beautiful Josie. There was some ad that was giving a free life coaching session and I was nurtured by Josie till I developed my strength, regained my self esteem, did up my dream board and went for it. I became very aware that my mental health was a product of the place I was in and that it was the situation that needed to change. I have achieved all my goals on that dream board..... which I am certain would not have happened without situation change and the life coaching from Josie. I am very fortunate now to have Josie as a very precious friend, achieved so much and have such a beautiful husband now with an amazing future. But I want to reiterate that it was not my mental health that was the problem ....it was the situation that needed to change. We all need to find a way and seek the people in our lives to make change when the place we are in is a detriment to our mental health.
I took away a lot from this presentation!

This book of inspirations is filled with messages I've personally written from my own experiences in life. I reflect on topics such as life lessons, conquering fear, mindset, resilience and much much more.
