G’Day,

I’M NICK BOWDITCH.

I AM A

 motivational speaker, best 

selling author, and therapist.

AND I AM A SUCCESSFUL AND UNSUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR.

I started on this journey as a small business owner and startup founder. I built and sold a few businesses. And I failed. A lot. Some of my best ideas turned out to be terrible ones and, thankfully, vice versa.

I’ve built agencies. I’ve built apps. I’ve sold stuff online. And I’ve helped loads of people tell their 
stories to the world by honestly telling mine.

Storytelling was key to me being able to build and sell startup businesses, and it was key to
me leaving the small biz world when Facebook recruited me to start, build, and run their small
business operations in Australia and New Zealand.

After leaving Facebook, I went on to work at Twitter, and to this day, I am still the only 
Australian to have worked at both Facebook and  Twitter and the only person in the world
to have worked in marketing departments at both brands.

But you know that feeling when you’ve got a good job, and you’re doing fun work … but you just feel like you should be doing something else?

YEP, ME TOO …

I just knew I wanted to do 3 things: I wanted to write a book about my childhood experience with abuse and trauma, and how I live with anxiety, depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result, I wanted to speak more about that and other experiences with mental illness and resilience and growth on stage in front of audiences where I can make a difference to other people living with that stuff (or living with people who are living with that stuff), and I wanted to change careers (again) to become a psychotherapist, and work with people in a much more hands-on way to help them with their own healing and growth.

… AND SO I DID.

I worked my way through rehab, through tons of therapy, I slaved away at my book, Reboot Your Thinking, which I am stoked to say became a best-seller. I now speak on stages all over Australia and around the world, including speaking at TEDx talking about my mental illness, my recovery from addiction, the resilience that we all have within us, and how to access it. And I completed qualifications in psychotherapy and counselling and am currently working towards getting my PhD in Psychology.

The pandemic knocked me around a bit, as it did for millions of people all over the world. But as we come out the other side of it now, it’s time for us all to reset, reboot our thinking, and keep moving towards being the best version of ourselves. And whether it’s seeing me speak at a conference or an event, reading one of my books, or engaging in some one-on-one counselling, coaching or therapy work with me, I would love to help you reset from all of this in the best position and putting your best foot forward.

How can I help you?

The Mind Science Project.

 

Reboot your thinking with easy to understand, well-researched mind science.

It’s really easy to be intimidated by psychology. In some ways, the psychology industry is built to keep the rest of us in the dark. It’s closed off, and jargon-heavy, and just has an air of both high intelligence and an expensive feel to it.

So, The Mind Science Project is all about de-coding some of this stuff, and presenting regular topics in an easy to understand fashion.

BUT … this doesn’t mean it’s just going to be opinion and gossip and unfounded pseudo-science either (there’s enough of that around at the moment). 

What you read on The Mind Science Project  is going to always be well-researched, well-referenced, and backed by science.

Big, important topics, presented in a way that everyone can read and understand. Let’s go!

Reboot Your Thinking

Reboot Your Thinking is about how I use 28 daily themes – including fun, mindfulness, boldness, happiness, kindness, shame, guilt, anger, failure, resilience and connection – to think differently and move further towards being the best version of myself. 

This workbook is full of practical strategies to help you recognise and deal with fear, overcome low self-esteem, reflect on and learn from the difficult times in your life, find your authentic self, become more connected with others, and improve your life every day.
