Tammie Horton is the CEO and Founder of Phynix Initiative.
She is a speaker, coach, and mental health advocate. She has a lived experience of bullying, self-harming, domestic abuse, suffering from anxiety and depression, supporting a partner with multiple health conditions, all the while holding down a full time job and raising three children.
In 2013 she hit rock bottom, she was completely broken and had become someone she didn’t recognise and didn’t want to be anymore. She figuratively set herself on fire and started her rebirth, rising up from the ashes of her former life and rebuilding herself into the person she is today.
In 2018 Tammie left her career as an awarding winning Business Continuity Manager in the Australian Public Service to pursue her passion of helping people overcome distress and overwhelm through motivation and resilience coaching, educating people on the valuable skills of Mental Health First Aid and promoting social and emotional development through the use of music and rhythm.
