‘There is a mudmap for life, to guide you when there are problems you don’t know how to address, to give some direction when you are lost, or to simply help dealing with people who seemed determined to shut you down’

Clive’s examination of the Hero’s Journey  led him to propose the idea that the Hero’s Journey provides a mudmap for daily living.  For the past 25 years, Clive has focused on the application of the Hero’s Journey as a mudmap for change and applying this mudmap with clients dealing with anxiety and mood disorders, addictions, relationship therapy, family problems, and workplace stresses. He has yet to find one situation where the Hero’s Journey could not be used to as a daily guide to assist change.  These ideas  of the Hero’s Journey as a mudmap for living providing strategies for dealing with modern life are articulated in his book A Mudmap for Living.

Clive has presented his ideas at the Hero Roundtables in Geelong Victoria (2015) and Michigan (2016) and Yarram Victoria (2018).  Clive has also presented at  Bond University Wellness Forum (2016) and both the first and second Heroism Science Conferences at Murdoch University Perth and Richmond University Virginia USA.  He has been an invited guest on podcasts the Hero Forge  and Coffee Chats with Matt . More recently Clive has become a Director for Blokepedia an organisation focused on the health and wellbeing of men.

Clive’s private practice is located in Boodua (just outside Toowoomba) though he works with clients around Australia and internationally.

“If we want our lives to change, the biggest challenge and the greatest reward will be in changing ourselves.”      ~ Clive Williams
