Who is Shaun O’Gorman?

Shaun O’Gorman is a testament to resilience and high performance. With 13 years of experience in law enforcement, he faced extreme violence, trauma, and mental health crises, including PTSD and depression, and confronted the specter of suicide. Following his service, Shaun built a successful 15-year corporate career while navigating the challenges of a conflicted divorce and difficult family court battle. Yet, instead of succumbing to these adversities, he forged an extraordinary life of triumph and fulfillment.

Shaun’s journey is one of unyielding determination and transformation. Today, he doesn’t just survive—he thrives, embracing a life he once only dreamed of. His story is not about glossy success but about gritty perseverance and achieving peak performance despite adversity.

Shaun O'Gorman

When I first met Shaun, I was one fight loss away from quitting my fight career. As an MMA fighter, I had lost 4 fights in a row and had 10 wins and 8 losses from my professional career. Shaun helped me with my mindset around fighting and I not only won my next fight but went on to secure a UFC contract. I fought 6 times for the UFC. Now I run my own martial arts and fitness center, which I had always dreamed of but never thought was possible. When Shaun and I first worked together I told him my dream was to fight UFC and run my own gym, he absolutely helped me make that dream possible.

Shaun also helped me put my military career into perspective, including my deployment to Afghanistan where I was involved in combat. He helped me understand the PTSD I was diagnosed with was an injury as a result of my service. I have received support and treatment for my injuries because of this willingness to acknowledge my injuries from my service.

To say Shaun has helped me is an understatement, he showed me a totally different way of thinking and I have continued to develop this for the last 5 years. This has had a huge positive impact on my business, marriage, being a Dad and my life in general.

I would highly recommend Shaun to anyone who wants to make changes in their lives and achieve amazing outcomes.

 Shaun is a refreshingly unique, left-of-centre character, who is totally up to something amazing in this world. Upon first meeting, Shaun completely understood my situation, but on the flip-side, he didn’t dwell on the detail. He helped me to move things forward in places I felt otherwise stuck. He showed me where I wasn’t helping myself, and in fact that I wasn’t stuck.

Whether the advice comes in the form of personal anecdote, relatable stories, or direct calling out of unhelpful behaviour – he has – hands down, been one of the most integral and pivotal advisors in my journey. The journey of mine was navigating the end of an abusive marriage, and ensuring my two beautiful children were minimally impacted – but you can insert ANY LIFE CHALLENGE here – and I know the influence of Shaun’s advice will have the same level of impact. I’ve never shied away from a challenge, but now I embrace it.

Shaun is the kind of person who lives his values and helps others to do the same. His infectious enthusiasm and energy are next-level – and single-handedly, he makes the world a better place.

“I am a Military veteran and was struggling with PTSD and major depression, before working with Shaun I was on drugs and seeing a Psychiatrist for 8 years just so I could function. 

Now I am drug-free and have created meaningful connections, I am able to fully appreciate and connect with my children and partner on a whole new level. Best thing I ever did for myself!

I have PTSD well and truly under control, and I am moving forward in my business and my life in a way I never thought was possible.

I really cannot recommend Shaun’s mentoring program enough.”
