    Theo Fleury | Stanley Cup Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, Abuse Survivor and Advocate

    Purchase a copy of Theo's book, Playing With Fire: https://amzn.to/3wvJmNw
    Theo Fleury is perhaps best known for his time on the ice. But off the rink, his life once carried the markings of a troubled childhood, abuse, and coping with emotional pain through addictive and self-destructive behaviors.
    Today, Theo defines himself as a victor over trauma and addiction and a facilitator to those still trying to find their way. His best-selling books, Playing with Fire and Conversations with a Rattlesnake, encourage open sharing and provide practical tools that people seeking help can personally use. These tools are also useful to those who want to lead a productive conversation, called “Real Conversations”, with anybody else experiencing trauma.

A must-listen podcast at a crucial time

Transformative storytelling with an insightful and empathetic voice! I’ve listened to nearly every episode and appreciate the platform Eric gives to survivors, discussions with experts and this community in shedding light on abuse.

Darren Potts - Pottscast ,

Great show

Incredibly insightful! Loved listening to this show.

Raw & powerful

It is so so so important to bring these conversations to light. Eric breaks through taboos and holds space for his guests to speak on how they’ve turned pain to power.
