Ep #14: Nick Sutherland
Nick Sutherland is a mental health practitioner and founder of Myndfit. He is what’s considered to be a “lived experience” practitioner, meaning instead of taking the conventional scholastic route to becoming a psychotherapist, I went to the “school of life” and his initial teachers were mistakes and challenging experiences.
Nick has been a fantastic teacher and sounding board for TradeMutt when it comes to mental health. He comes from a very relatable back ground, being an ex-recon soldier in the Australian Army. He also takes the approach of equipping people with the tools and resources needed to understand their own mental health. Nick is passionate about helping blokes to understand that we all have mental health and that it’s our personal responsibility to keep it in shape.
