Hi Paul 

This is a testimonial I would like to offer regarding the help and assistance you have given me through the MindShift program. 

I contacted Paul from a referral I was given by another business owner and friend. I had been going through a really tough time in life. This for a couple of years. 

The main challenges for me were as follows. 

  • Low self-esteem 
  • Low energy
  • I was angry.

I wondered where my place was socially and what I could offer the world. 

I had disengaged from friends and family, Kind of like Maverick in the first Top Gun movie, it's no good Goose It's no good. 

There are multiple negative emotions I could share but I would prefer to share the direction MindShift has taken me. 

This is for you people thinking about MindShift and if it is right for you?

Firstly, there are two commitments for you here.

No1: The first and most important commitment is to yourself by committing to doing the program, commit to doing the work, commit to getting straight into it, and commit to just getting it done. 

The benefits for you by just getting it done will be far greater than if you procrastinate. I know most of us are professionals at procrastination it is one of our best skills. Guys Park it, beat it for a day or two, and just get this done.  

 No2: The second is there is a bit of investment here. Make sure you're ready. If you are, the monetary investment into your personal well-being is nothing. I would pay 4 x the dollars to feel as I do now. 

What I have learned 

I have learned how to forgive not only people around me but myself. 

I have learned that the things I was angry about for the most part weren't really there. 

I have learned how to step outside of my head and how to manage the revolving (door) thought process or anxiety. 

I have learned how to manage and catch myself assigning blame. PLAY ABOVE THE LINE.  

The best part is I have learned how to check in with myself and check in on my actions and reactions. Am I playing fair is this ok? 

I work every day to add value to the people in and around my life. I work every day to work on bettering myself and remembering I matter too. 

This program is amazing as in the first part of MindShift it showed me how to deal with, and park all my past crap. The second half gave me the tools I needed to manage my new journey. 

Yes, I still have shit days but it's easier to move forward when you understand and have the tools. I now want to get out of bed in the morning. 

Every day and every week has just got better and better for me. That I am loving! 

Paul is super supportive and always available to help you through the program and any challenges. 

He is a good honest man. His kick is seeing people better themselves and that is awesome. 

Back to Top Gun 

Ghost Rider, Maverick has re-engaged. and that is how I feel like I'm back in the life game and loving it. 

Thanks so much for your help MindShift and you Paul.

Warrick's amazing journey with anxiety and depression and how MindShift changed his life.


Anxiety, depression, addiction! I had them all.

Doctor Peter's story

When I was a teenager, I resented that my mum went to work and I was babysat at my grandmother’s house with my cousins; other kids had more money, bigger houses, newer bikes etc.

I thought this was not fair and feared this would always be the case, which made me angry and anxious.

These unpleasant feelings were not understood by me, so all this exploded out of me as a rebellious teenager who looked to numb unpleasant feelings in drugs and alcohol.

Superficially this made things tolerable because my mind was numbed, but nothing was resolved, and I carried my anger, fear and resentment into adulthood.

I had a good memory so I succeeded academically and became a doctor at 22, still abusing drugs and alcohol to numb feelings I had no idea of how to deal with.

Not knowing how to deal with unpleasant feelings meant I was incredibly anxious about life all the time, could not relax naturally and slept poorly, and eventually became dependent on drugs to sleep.

Four children and three wives later I found myself depressed and suicidal in my late fifties. After three failed suicide attempts, numerous visits to psychologists and psychiatrists, in desperation and despair I found Paul Heffernan and “MindShift” online whilst searching for hope in a sea of self-pity and depression.

I rapidly worked through a process where I looked at myself and my part in all my life’s problems. No focus on the story but rather all the focus on my part in where things went wrong (so no blaming others) - my fears, my anger and my resentment, and the people I had hurt through my actions.

By writing all this down and then working through all this, I was able to finally let go of all the anger and fear, and my resentments eased. Big exhale – what a relief!

Consequently, the high anxiety which had plagued me for 40 plus years abated and I learned to appreciate my life and the others in it. Of course, this is an ongoing process of self-reflection, but with the tools and some regular effort, calm can be maintained.

So, if you are plagued by anxiety, depression, addiction, fear, and resentment to the point that your life is negatively affected, I suggest you look at this. The beauty of this is by looking at yourself you can make a choice to let go of these unpleasant feelings and attitudes and view things differently. This is doable, whereas waiting for others to change is a long, frustrating highway to anger, fear and resentment.

The luckiest thing that ever happened

Marks story
Technology automation engineer
New Zealand

I came across Paul and Mindshift by chance, and it may be the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to me. I’m in my mid-30s and have spent the last 25 years suffering chronic depression, anxiety, and numerous addictions.

I’ve been in and out of therapy since I was 10, on and off prescription medication since I was 18, and an alcoholic for the last 2 years. I met Paul, and he encouraged me to take the leap and really get into this program.

I made a small start and got into the middle of it and froze up, I couldn’t face it, but Paul called me and had a good long chat which convinced me to crank through the rest as quickly as possible. I finished the program in 3 days, and it was like the clouds broke over my head; I felt like I was standing in the sun again.

I cannot stress enough the power of this course and of Paul’s recommendation to get it done as quickly as you can. I overcame years of negativity in the first 2 days, and the 3rd gave me the tools I needed to keep those feelings at bay. Paul’s phone calls and support during that time were invaluable; his wise words and down to earth delivery of the facts will stay with me throughout the rest of the journey this course has started in my mind. Thanks so much, Paul, you’ve changed my life!


MindShift saved my life

 Warrick's story
Call centre team leader
New Zealand
Five days ago I was in a dark place, I have been depressed off and on my whole life, the same with my anxiety, but the last few months it had gotten the worst it had ever been, and I was making steps towards being committed to an institution because I was feeling extremely suicidal.
I was at the point I was ready to try anything; I said Id dance naked in the rain if I thought it would help. We both laughed, and Paul said, 'you may very well do that when we're done or words to that effect.
 As I worked my way through the program, there were no surprises, I knew it was bullying at school that started me down the path to depression, and workplace bullying put me where I am today. What surprised me was when I got to the point in the program where I could unpack my negative emotions and find forgiveness and compassion for the people who hurt me. I also had to confront myself and my role in where I was and take responsibility for my actions.
Was it easy? Hell no. It was hard because I had held onto that anger all my life; it was all I knew, anger and fear. But MindShift gave me a way to let it all go. It takes work, effort and you have to push yourself hard and be completely honest with yourself (and that is easy because everything you do is confidential to yourself). Still, ultimately it has been a life-changing experience.
So here I am, five days after starting MindShift, and I am feeling, well, different. Like a huge weight has been lifted off my soul. I feel clear-headed, I feel calm, I feel a sense of purpose returning to me. I have not felt this way for a long time, so long I had almost forgotten what it felt like; to be happy.
Is there more work to do? Sure is. But now I feel like I have a way forward, I have a structure, I have a process, I have the knowledge needed to make my life a better place to live. Thank you, Paul; from the bottom of my heart, you have literally been life-saving.

We all need help sometimes.

Diane's story
Early childhood teacher

I have thought about this a lot, and I think, where I was when I first contacted you. I think how now is and how when I am overwhelmed or avoiding confrontation, I have a go-to help place, and it is because I did ‘MindShift’.

So many thanks to you and ‘MindShift’.

Thinking back through my journey from a very sad, anxious and lost person to where I am now is humbling. Life, as some say, is not always easy, but some of us choose the wrong path that makes life so much harder. I’m a person that can make some of those poor choices for myself or having too many drinks to make things seem better. There’s a point we need to reach that makes us realise that we can’t keep blaming someone else for our life; we need to be accountable for our own actions and the direction our life is going. 

I was at that point when I contacted Paul. I had tried to control my behaviour and drinking before; I had talked with a doctor, done some research, asked friends for help, I hadn’t found a solution.

‘MindShift’ gives structure to who you are, our basic instincts and how this controls our actions, it has changed who I am for the better, and I no longer suffer from anxiety or addiction.

I am no highflyer, but since “MindShift’ I have completed a Diploma and am so proud of myself; I do not believe I could have achieved it without the confidence and inner strength I have gained through ‘MindShift.’

We all need help sometimes, so give it a go, and it will change your life for the better. Good luck with your future.


I didn’t actually think I needed help.

   Louise's story
   Finance controller

I can honestly say that before I stumbled upon this program, I was a complete mess. I was so stressed out with multiple layers of extremely stressful situations that I just couldn’t get my head around anything to get my life into any sort of normalcy.

 I was feeling so out of control & felt like I was losing my mind. My teenage daughter was also suffering from severe anxiety & debilitating panic attacks & all I wanted to do was to help ease her pain & suffering.

I found MindshiftWorks quite by accident & it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

I didn’t actually think I needed help, as I was looking to help my daughter, but after talking to Paul, decided to do it as well.

I am so grateful to Paul for suggesting I do it as it has really changed my life for the better.

I feel so in control of my life now & have the tools to make each day matter & if I feel myself slipping, I can work through MindShift to get back on top of things.

I can honestly say that if you are having any second thoughts. Then don’t.

Don’t waste time contemplating, sign up and change your life now.

I am forever grateful that I did.


How I was before, MindShift

Guiseppe's story
New Zealand

I felt lost, empty and scared, angry and anxious. I was drinking 3-4 times a week, doing drugs, missing work, letting people down and making a show of myself because I was anxious and depressed and had no way to understand what was going on in my head and why people in my life had hurt me the way they did, I had previously sold drugs in the UK and thought that what was going on in my brain was a feeling of guilt of the things that had taken part previously in my life. I’d tried overdosing on New Year’s Eve but thankfully woke up the next day. This continued for a few more months till I met my partner and through her, I met Paul as she is friends with his daughter.

The week whilst I was doing the “MindShift.”

When I first met Paul, he gave me the tools to process what I felt inside, which helped me understand why I felt the way I felt. It was painful at first reliving all these old memories I’d buried so deep. It was an emotional week, but I pushed through and discovered what it was that was really eating me up. As I carried on doing the worksheets, I found out from my subconscious what was really bugging me. Things I didn’t even know had affected me had really brought me down, and the things I thought I felt guilty for weren’t actually bothering me at all.

 After “MindShift”

 I feel a lot better as I have the tools necessary to process emotions and use reason and validity to understand and deal with the way I feel. I still have bad days when I feel down and stressed, but rather than stewing on them, I can properly help myself to move past it and forgive or forget what it was that caused it and then, in turn, be there for other people like my partner or family and friends. Anger was a big one for me, but now instead of fighting and doing stupid things, I can understand my part in a situation and remove myself from it as before I would fight or argue and get myself into trouble.

I knew that something was wrong, and I needed help.

Brendon’s Story
Real Estate Company Owner

“No one knew I had a drinking problem. I didn’t think that I had one either, but it was sneaking up on me quickly, and I didn’t want to recognise it as a problem. The drinking out of sight from the family was becoming a daily occurrence, and I was always anxious and suffered from depression.

It was a Sunday evening, and I was full from drinking through the day, and I was a mess. I was usually pretty good at keeping it under wraps, but this time I couldn’t string a sentence together in front of my wife and brother-in-law. 

I could see them looking at me, and I was embarrassed. I knew that something was wrong, and I needed help.

Pissed, I had jumped on the PC and punched something into Google and Pauls website came up. 

We never met face to face, but there was an instant trust that came across. He was talking in a language that made sense. 

I was not a fan of talking in a group or going to sessions with others, and I felt very comfortable working through “MindShift”.

I realised what drinking was costing me in my personal and business life was a lot more than a few hundred dollars, and I could spend that in less than a week.

 Owning a business and being in a high-stress position and suffering from anxiety and depression, I could feel the effects of alcohol taking the edge of my fitness and mental sharpness. The alcoholism was stopping me from achieving so many of my personal and business goals. It was stopping me from being the person that I wanted to be.

“MindShift” gave me the exact tools to take action immediately and the tools to stay on track.”

Being alcohol-free, my business is back on track, with more focus, and I am actually “present” in my business and personal relationships.

I highly recommend that if you are struggling with alcohol, then “MindShift” will give you more than you ever dreamed of, and it will give you freedom from alcohol, anxiety, and depression.


I know it has worked for so many people, but more importantly, it saved my life.

Dan's Story
Advertising executive
New Zealand

I have never met Paul, but we have talked many times on the telephone. Despite having never seen him in person, Paul and ‘MindShift’ played a major part in bringing me back from the brink of a life crisis I was not capable of dealing with.

A relationship breakup hit me hard, and in the aftermath, my anxiety and addiction came charging back. I had been attending 12 step meetings for over 4 years. In a short period of time, ‘MindShift’s’ sensible and powerful formula took me back to feeling accepting and empowered. Not only did it straighten me out – returning me to a place of calm – but I felt I had an improved approach to everything. I have never felt better. It is too simple and effective not to try – it would enhance anyone’s life.

I endorse and encourage anyone who has struggled with anxiety or addiction to commit to ‘MindShift’ I know it has worked for so many people, but more importantly, it saved my life.


MindShift knocked my walls down.

Simone's Story

New Zealand

Thank you so much for MindShift online, I found it extremely rewarding and it allowed me to understand my weaknesses and strengths after living with anxiety for the last 14 years with all my wall's up.

MindShift allowed me to knock them all down. Believing in myself and being positive and happy have been Gold.

I know that I am on the right path for happiness. Life had tossed me curve ball's and hurdles, but MindShift has helped me to learn how to deal with them in a better calmer way, my anxiety has been lifted and I have a new energy and zest for life.

MindShift is totally different from anything I have done before and I suggest if you are struggling with anxiety or depression then just commit and launch yourself into it.

Again, thank you so very, very much. 

Kind regards,

This is the best investment I ever made.

Tony’s Story

I’ve always done okay in life. Did I have a problem?

I was continually anxious and depressed. Eventually, I saw that my problem was that I wasn’t who I wanted to be. I was damaging my health and not happy. I thought, ‘Fuck it’ I’m better than this!

Psychologists were too soft, touchy-feely’. Other programmes were weeks of meetings that I got lost in. I even did money on a retreat! Scouring the Internet, I was surprised at how little help is on offer. Guess why; anxiety is a complex puzzle that is sometimes almost impossible to unravel. That’s why most therapy fails.

Paul Heffernan quickly gave me a lesson in tough love and playing, grown-ups’. I realised that his style is not only a part of his earthy compassion, kindness and humanity but also because he himself has done the hard yards on the tough side of life. He’s come out of it with beautiful values, which he’s working hard at sharing.
I now see how we all have our own set of complexities, which is impossible for us to sort for ourselves. Paul has amazingly formulated the Mindshift Programme, which allows us to methodically lay it bare. It is exhausting and intensive, simple and brilliant.

Best of all, I’ve got awareness mechanisms, an approach to life 

It’s hard for me to comprehend that I’m different. I understand what’s been going on in this head of mine.

This is the best investment I ever made.






I have no doubt Paul saved my life. 

Brad’s Story
New Zealand

In December of 2016, my second marriage ended after 12 months of solid Tramadol and codeine abuse. I had managed to keep anxiety and addiction reasonably well hidden; however, my behaviour deteriorated to the point that my partner kicked me out, then moved out. This came at a particularly low point in my life. Externally everything had been going well; internally, I was crashing and burning. To me, there was no alternative other than to end my miserable life.

I took what should have been a fatal dose of Tramadol, codeine and antidepressants, but I survived. It’s fair to say I was at rock bottom and desperate to change my life. In desperation, I called a friend of over 25 years.

Within hours he was sitting at the end of my bed listening to my sad story. He was caring and empathetic. It was a great relief to be able to talk to someone honestly. It had been a long time since I had been honest. He left for the night, telling me we would start the work the following morning.

The Paul that turned up the next morning was a different person. The empathy was still there, but so was the desire to tell me a few truths. There was no holding back, and he told me as it was. In being honest with me, he expected the same in return.

Paul has developed his own program he refers to as ‚‘Mindshift' an intense three-stage process that simply works. Its’ simple, short and extremely powerful.

What I learnt from the Mindshift Programme allows me to function with integrity, honesty and unselfishly. My life isn’t perfect, but I now have the tools to make corrections where needed.

I have no doubt Paul saved my life through the process of MindShift. In fact, I will go one step further in that he has allowed me to live my life in a way I never thought possible.


'MINDSHIFT' has given me a new lease on life.

Kane's Story

Kia Ora Paul
I want to thank you for taking me through the 'MINDSHIFT' process. I never knew how much fear, anxiety and anger I was holding onto, I feel this limited me from reaching my full potential.
After completing 'MINDSHIFT', I see how crippling these fears and resentments were, and they had a negative impact on my work performance and personal relationships.
'MINDSHIFT' has given me a new lease on life as well as provided insight into keeping myself safe.

Many thanks

In 2021 I presented 4 workshops for people who were just struggling with their lives, they suffered from PTSD, trauma, abuse, addiction, anxiety and depression. They carried shame, guilt, remorse, fear, hate and resentment plus many more.
