On today's Zero Limits Podcast we chat to Shaun O’Gorman former K9 Queensland Police Officer. After joining the Queensland Police Service in 1989, Shaun worked in the Police Dog Squad for many years as well as the Covert and Surveillance unit working on Major and Organised Crime. While in the K9 unit Shaun was involved in daily high-risk critical incidents ranging from violent street brawls, high-speed pursuits, barricaded suspects, domestic violence, and shooting incidents. The majority of these placed him at high risk of serious injury or even death. He also performed duties with the Special Emergency Response Team (SWAT) as a tactical K9 handler.

Shaun left the QPS and was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The years of exposure to violence and tragedy resulted in clinical depression and a battle with suicide. Shaun spent three nights in a row, a Glock pistol in his hand, laying in bed trying to think of reasons not to end his life. To overcome his mental health injuries, Shaun spent the next 17 years immersed in the study of personal development, human behaviour and high performance with a goal of healing himself and living a happy life. He now devotes his life to helping others using the knowledge and education that helped him help himself. Currently he is a Human Behaviour, High Performance and Resilience consultant, keynote speaker, and author. Let's Go!!
