We cover Nicks past and time in the Military and what he has overcome, how his business is underpinned by Buddhist and Stoic Philosophy.

Nick Sutherland talks to Tina Winchester about his background including being discharged from the Army, and ultimately how he went on to create MyndFit, an organisation designed to teach people how to be mentally fitter, healthier and stronger.
Nick shares his thoughts and experiences in relation to meditation, exploring philosophies that have helped shape him, Buddhism and more, whilst helping to create a shift and change the perspective on how mental health is perceived.
