In his early 20s Dr Winfried Sedhoff faced a life-threatening personal crisis that sent him into self-imposed isolation. Over a 12-month internal quest he discovered not only answers to his crisis, but uncovered a sense of genuine self. More than 25 years later, having continuously refined his approaches via his work as a family physician specialising in mental health, he shares his insights with patients, colleagues, medical trainees, and the general public via his books, A Balance of Self, A New Approach to Self Understanding, Lasting Happiness, and Self-Truth(Vivid, 2011), and The Fall and Rise of Women, How Women Can Change the World (Ingram, 2016). His writings convey his passion for history, tribal society, ethnography, psychology, and self-understanding.
Winfried lives in Brisbane, Australia.
