After experiencing mental illness and addiction with her own children, she
founded Maureen Towns Consulting to help families struggling to care for
their own loved ones. Her work with parents inspires them to rediscover
themselves within chaotic and challenging situations.
After growing up in an abusive, alcoholic home and raising her children
through their mental health issues, Maureen discovered a more authentic
way of living after learning resilience, detachment, self-care, and com-
munication. In the years following her family’s challenges, Maureen has
camped on a beach in Thailand, slept under the stars on a remote Phil-
ippine Island, sailed and snorkeled in the Andaman Sea, became a dive
master in Roatan and dove with sharks in the Red Sea.
Born in Ontario, Maureen currently resides in Calgary, Alberta. She can

Episode 114 | Think Like A Mind Reader | Guest: Jonathan Pritchard
This episode I speak with Jonathan Pritchard, International speaker/trainer focusing on the power of applied psychology in sales, negotiation, and beyond. 20+ years as a professional mind reader.
I've entertained the troops stationed overseas, performed on Vegas main stages, appeared on national television, and checked off every box for success an entertainer could think of, but I still felt like something was missing.
I realized I enjoyed talking with people after the show about how I'd found a way to make a living doing what I love, and helping them dream bigger in their own lives. These led to my first coaching clients, and ignited my passion to share what I know.
That's when I decided to open the curtains and explain how the psychology I use on stage to get people think I can read minds is exactly the same psychology that drives effective communication, influence, negotiation, and sales. This led to the founding of my experiential design company "Hellstrom Group," writing the book "Think Like A Mind Reader" to help with the mental side, and establishing a martial art community to help with the physical.
