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.


An avid learner, Josie has completed masters studies in neuroscience and combines 15 years of corporate experience with almost two decades of coaching to corporate executives, entrepreneurs and community leaders.

Josie was awarded the International Gold Stevie Award for Maverick of the Year (Difference Maker) for 2014 and AsiaPacific in 2015; The Women in Business Coach/Mentor of the Year 2014 Silver Award in New York City, and AsiaPacific in Shanghai for 2015; and she’s a former Telstra Business Woman of the Year finalist.

She is also Ambassador for Childhood Cancer Support and Veterans 4 Youth. Josie commits herself to transforming and improving the lives of others.

May my own light burn so brightly that others may see their way out of the darkness. Love is always the answer. Jx
Thankful Thursday 
Right now I find myself at a weeklong retreat with Dr Joe Dispenza - OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE and one thousand participants. I’m learning to tune into myself more deeply, and to recognise the powerful link between belief, behaviour and becoming… 

I’m here to change programs and to change myself… to create a healthier, more balanced and wholesome life. I’ve been doing ok, but this latest health challenge has provided incentive to take my awareness and unlimited creative potential up a level. 

I’m realising that we are supposed to be triggered or else we won’t be motivated to change. And resisting the movements of consciousness restricts our expansion. 

Comfort zones are meant to be broken over and over again. This is how we learn and grow. 

Spiral out or spiral in?  The choice is ours. But the only way out is through.
Then… LET IT GO! 

Fortitude is a virtue.

I’m so grateful that I valued and loved myself enough to be here. I’m thankful for prioritising me for a whole week (that in itself was a huge commitment), and deciding that I am worthy of this investment and the bigger brighter future that’s waiting for me! 

I’ve learned it’s never too late to change. I’ve learned my heart is capable of loving myself through all my pain, hurts and wounds,  into a beautiful new reality. I’ve learned the best time to start is now… so go for it!!!  What are you waiting for? 

I want to live a life of no retreats - so here I am, showing up every day for myself, putting in the effort to change, because I’m worth it and destiny awaits! Go me! Bring it on!  Jx
