Who Are We?

After 20 years of delivering life changing and wellbeing programs, mostly to healthcare practitioners around the world, Drs John and Judy Hinwood founded the Stress Management Institute® in 2013, as they saw that stress was one of the most prevalent, baseline and untreated medical issues.

Despite its horrific effects, no one wanted to talk about stress and there seemed to be a lack of practical tools and strategies that worked.

Too often, those who were dangerously stressed could tell their story, but then what – what they desperately wanted and needed was a way to move forward, both now and in the future. So those who needed help the most, were slipping through the cracks. And this is how the Stress Management Institute® journey began.

Since 2013, the Stress Management Institute has exponentially grown and now has an Advisory Board comprising five world renowned experts and eight consultants and advisers. There is also a follow up team of stress management and emotional resilience trainers, facilitators and practitioners.

But back to John and Judy. They are Fellows of the American Institute of Stress, and John is a Fellow and Judy an Associate Fellow of the Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia & New Zealand. John and Judy are also Fellow and Member of the Australasian College of Chiropractors and John is a Fellow of the International College of Chiropractors.

They have received numerous humanitarian and other distinguished awards in Australia and the United States and have published numerous papers in academic journals.

John and Judy are accomplished and best-selling authors and have published seven books for health care practitioners and ten books on the mind and stress management. Four of these mindset books have reached Amazon’s “Best Sellers” list.

John and Judy are passionate about what they do and want to help and make a difference to those who don’t know where to turn.
