Paramedic, Counsellor, Workshop Counsellor and Keynote Speaker

Paul Spinks is an advanced care paramedic, a qualified counsellor and a high impact keynote speaker who believes the best project you will ever work on is you! Having seen the darkest side of other people’s lives, he is convinced that our mental health and physical health are the key to optimising productivity in the workplace and at home too.

During his straight shooting seminars, workshops and life coaching programs, Paul takes his audiences on a journey, sharing chilling stories direct from the chair of an ambulance. He discusses work and personal stress, suicide and drug use, as well as obesity and cardiac disease.

More about Paul Spinks:

Paul Spinks began his career as an Advanced Australian Care Paramedic and soon became aware that the job would require him to provide a supportive and calming voice to people and their families during one of the most vulnerable and stressful moments in their lives.

With an extensive background in trauma counselling, Paul was not only prepared, but also highly skilled to meet this challenge. What Paul was unprepared for was the extent that mental health played in the number of daily call outs for his crew.

Day after day, Paul found he and his team faced people in situations and circumstances of great peril, driven by their inability to cope and deal with life.

Stunned by the extent that mental health was impacting how he did his job on a daily basis, Paul went on a journey of discovery himself and was shocked to discover the mental health epidemic that had gripped Australia.

Today Paul is known as a ‘game changer’. During his no nonsense presentations, seminars and workshops, he provides the tools for people to act, the bring about purpose and direction, and in the process, discover new meaning in their homes and their workplace.

As Paul says, “When we are done, your emotional wellbeing will be put on notice; you will cry and laugh and want to run home and hug your kids, but you will be thankful for the experience and all the possibilities that have been awoken within you!”

Paul Spinks has a regular radio segment on Sydney’s 2SM super network.

Paul Spinks talks about:

In Paul’s ‘Wake Up Call’ Seminar series, he covers:

What do you value the most? – How do we connect with the world around us, especially our families, and is it worth hocking our lifestyles to our income in pursuit of materialistic gain, when research is cautioning us over and over again that happiness can’t be found here.

Are you micro-managing yourself sick? – One percent of muscle mass per year gone from the age of 35 unless we intervene; this means reducing hormones and bone density just to name a few. It would appear there are thousands of opinions on what it takes to stay well and eat well, but at the end of the day it is a simple as this.

Master yourself – Know your cracks, consider where you may sit on the spiral of life and get in early. Learn to breathe – we have become a nation of shallow breathers trying to take on and do too much. Advance on mindfulness with guided meditation. This simple technique could just change your life.
