Richard Hill has emerged from a diverse and fascinating journey to become an innovative speaker on the mind, brain and the human condition. From a satisfying, if not quite famous, early career in the creative arts, Richard returned to intellectual studies at 42 (1996) beginning with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in linguistics. This triggered a curiosity that led to a diploma in counselling and a new career in psychotherapy. Studying continued and he has added three Masters degrees – an MA in Social Ecology; an MEd in Social Ecology; and a Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences (MBMSc) from Sydney University. Richard is also fortunate to be mentored by the esteemed Ernest Rossi PhD who has invited Richard into the International Psychosocial Genomics Research Team to study the impact of therapeutic practice on the genetic level.

His fascination with the disturbing problem of stress and anxiety has resulted in his unique theory – The Winner-Loser World Theory – and the positive positive counterpoint – The Curiosity Approach: which highlights our Curiosity for Possibility. These theories revolutionize the way we deal with stress and anxiety and how we approach standard therapeutic practices.

Richard’s books include a collection of inspirational short stories in Choose Hope and his explication of his Winner/Loser World Theory in How the ‘real world’ Is Driving Us Crazy! In addition, he is published in various journals and magazines around the world and in book chapters, including Perspectives on Coping and Resilience and Strengths Based Social Work Practice in Mental Health, published worldwide. His latest book is co-authored with his mentor, Ernest Rossi, The Practitioner’s Guide to Mirroring Hands.

Matthew Dahlitz is both university trained and an autodidactic, whose knowledge spans across the arts, technology, psychology, neuroscience, emergency medicine, and business. Studied psychology at the University of Queensland and gained a Master of Counselling postgraduate degree – now a specialist in neuropsychotherapy and the Editor-in-Chief of The Neuropsychotherapist, has taught post-graduate courses in neuropsychotherapy, and is author of the book The Psychotherapists’s Essential Guide to the Brain.

Matthew, like Richard, has a musical bent, having studied at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in both music technology and master of composition – having scored for film and produced a number of albums of original music he has also been a producer in a film production company. Matthew has also been an Advanced Care Paramedic for a decade, managed commercial property and property development projects in the tens of millions of dollars, is the Editor-in-Chief of the technology magazine Age of Robots, covering the technology and the social and psychological impacts of this second machine age, and runs a media and publishing company with an emphasis on cutting edge science and technology. Matt’s life is rather full!
