Peter Winslow is a respected Arizona life coach who guides GoldMind, LLC, and provides a host of integrated services, including transformational coaching that helps clients attain goals and find renewed purpose. Emphasizing the mind-body connection, Peter Winslow draws on personal experience in overcoming addiction, depression, and ankylosing spondylitis (AS), which culminated in a life-changing near death experience.

The life coach maintains the website helpinghealing.com, which focuses on those suffering from what many physicians describe as an “incurable disease.” Those diagnosed with AS often experience crippling stiffness and near constant pain, as well as a sense of anxiety as they are informed that their condition is likely to last for life. Things that come naturally to other people, such as maintaining relationships with friends and family members and holding down a regular job, become insurmountably difficult.

Mr. Winslow’s condition reached a point where he felt he had a stark choice to make: to kill himself or help himself. Armed with a firm commitment to reversing his pain he ultimately chose the latter. His book Heal For Real lays out simple, practical techniques of guided imagery that are nearly effortless if approached the right way. This non-medical process generates real results: Harvard researchers were able to determine that those who adhered to such an approach are able to decrease chronic pain by nearly one-third within a month, and acute pain within minutes.
