This week’s guest is Josh Dickson, an accredited EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Consultant, accredited drugs and alcohol counsellor, and an exciting innovator in trauma healing. Josh is the clinical director of the Resurface programme, which uses surfing as a core element in developing new positive resources for those with a traumatic history.

His approach is grounded in the belief that engaging with the natural elements and participating in challenging physical activities like surfing can significantly enhance mental health and emotional well-being.

We discuss:

  • Flow state: what it is and is not
  • Flow state and therapy
  • Surfing and trauma release
  • Teaching resilience to kids
  • Flow state vs drug-assisted therapy
