Hi, My name is Nicholas de Castella. My wife, Susan, and I have over 20 years experience as Breathwork Trainers.

We have built an amazing life through Breathwork raised a family of 4 Live on our own 7 acre forest retreat, conduct transformational workshops and have built a heart centred Breathwork community that stretches around the world.

We are keen to support you to create a rich and fulfilling life in service to others.

Self-Regulate - Bring yourself to Calm, Connected and Present

Self Regulation is the ability to calm, focus and control one's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to achieve long-term goals.

The first step in Self-Regulation is to raise self-awareness. We do this by becoming more present and connected to yourself. The more present and connected you are, the more in touch with yourself, others and life you will be.

The second step in learning Self-Regulation is to increase the quality of your Presence. People don’t remember what you say, they remember how you made them feel. The quality of your presence is what people feel and what influences them the most.

Presence is about how much you live in the present moment. How in touch you are with your body (embodied). And how open hearted you are – your capacity to flow your emotions though your body. The quality of your presence increases as you heal your unresolved emotional trauma.

The Third step in Self-Regulation is to help you connect more clearly with your Heart Intelligence   Science now demonstrates that your heart is intelligent. It processes information and informs the brain. Heart Centered Breathwork gently guides us out of the busyness of our mind, into our body, through our emotions into our heart.

Co Regulate – Be present in loving ways.

Is a process where two or more individuals work together to calm, focus and consciously direct their emotions and behaviors.

Co-regulation can be a powerful tool for improving emotional and behavioral regulation, building positive relationships, and promoting overall well-being.

Co-Regulating helps others to heal and grow…

· Feel safe to accept and be themselves   · Slow down inside, lessen anxiety and restlessness

· Acknowledge and share their deepest truths

· Allow themselves to feel and heal past trauma

· Come into a state of harmony and balance.   · Love and accept themselves for who they are, as they are

· Gain confidence to be authentic and live the life they are here to live

Medical Doctors Recommend

Core Clearing Breathwork!…


Dr Andrew Horwood G.P

I have known and worked with Nicholas and Susan de Castella for over 10 years. Over 200 of my patients during this time have reported more energy; lessening of physical pain; increased understanding of their life situation; a range of skills that can be used in all sorts of situations to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression; improved mood; improved coping skills with life stressors; more passion in their lives, and hence, improved relationships; finding a network of genuine friends from whom they feel support.

Some of my patients attending Seminars have been particularly ill, either physically or mentally, and these patients, too, have been able to make great gains during a short time. I conclude by thoroughly recommending the range of Seminars facilitated by Nicholas & Susan de Castella. These are high quality events with the potential for changing people’s lives forever.


Dr. Margaret Ngu G.P.

As medical doctors you would want to benefit from their transforming work for yourself and of course your patients. I have found Nicholas and Susan to be heartfelt beings who practice what they preach and in doing so have that special quality of authentic and infectious teaching by example. Both are well experienced healing processes, which as a holistic practitioner for more than 25yrs.

I know it as essential for my patients to access in order to regain wellness. Whether facilitated in individual sessions or in groups, patients will get help for the emotional and mental dimensions of their symptoms, which most GPs have no time to delve into; whether it is depression, chronic fatigue, asthma, degenerative illness of all kinds. Your patients will be thankful for Nicholas and Susan's help.


Dr Peter Johnston G.P.

I have attended Passionately Alive, Manhood and Relationship. I have found them helpful and inspiring. I recommend my patients to attend. In fact I believe emotional and heart centred work is essential for personal growth and healing. I recommend these workshops to anyone with chronic disease, relationship problems, emotional crisis and those wanting to avoid these.

Holistic Medical Practitioner, MBBS (Monash), AMAC (Australian Medical Acupuncture College), FACNEM (Fellow of Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine), MSE(Psychology), Founder of Australian College of Transformational Medicine. Past President of AIMA, Australasian Integrative Medicine Association (1998-2001)


Dr. Robert Hanner G.P.

I cannot recommend too highly the brilliant work that Nicholas and Susan de Castella do with people who are troubled with life's inevitable challenges and stresses. I had the fortunate experience of doing my first course, Passionately Alive 5 years ago and the benefits I attained have remained to this day. I am more present and, in the moment, and in touch with my emotions since that unforgettable weekend.

This has helped enormously in my personal relationships and in my professional life. Nicholas has created a safe, secure, environment where people are free to express themselves openly. He treats everyone as equals and so even though he is a teacher and facilitator he is neither didactic nor beyond approach.

What People Are Saying About the Training…



Domestic Violent Victim to Business Owner/Empowered Woman

I felt totally destroyed, and fearful as I was wrapped in the chains of havoc even years after the divorce. I then found Passionately Alive it was the first key to setting myself free from the chains holding me in my past and it sparked my own empowerment journey. I began to reclaim areas of myself that I thought were gone forever as I stepped deeper into the training and became a Thrive Breathwork Coach.

I was becoming alive once more and being the positive role model for my children by living and feeling my truth. I now have a clear light shining and directing me in my life (my heart) where once I only saw emptiness and blackness.

Today I am living my heart’s calling; I am saving for the 1st time in 10 years as a single parent, I have my own business; Heart’s Voice and I am a Thrive Breathwork Coach, Women’s Meditation Group Facilitator, Office Assistant and Workshop Assistant with Thrive Breathwork Coach Academy.



I did the Thrive Breathwork Coach Training for my own personal development, and it had the most amazing impact on my life. I learned all about that empty ache and all of the other feelings that had mystified me my whole life.

I learned how to identify emotions, how to be with them, even the uncomfortable ones and to express them in healthy ways. To me this had been the missing piece of my puzzle, particularly my body image puzzle. I could now love myself and allow true love to come back.

During my Coach training I found the love of my life and married him. Now we have two gorgeous girls to add to Bruce’s 4 lovely children.

For the first time in a really long time, I truly believe in myself and what I have to offer. I’m able to witness the self-depreciating thoughts and recognize them for what they are; a story I made up a long time ago I can now move past them to achieve my goals. I feel highly motivated and excited to the point where some mornings, I wake up at 4am full of ideas and I get up and start work then! I am more willing to take risks, do my best and be OK with things being good enough. I feel more open and trusting, in my work and in my life.

Thank you, Nicholas and Susan! When I met you, I was looking for so much. Your work helped me to find myself…my loving husband, our children and the fantastic life I now feel so blessed by and grateful for. Thank you!



From Zookeeper to International Award-Winning Conservationist Consultant

I was at the point in my life where I wanted to share my knowledge with the world. I had learned so much from Nicholas and Susan with my own personal Growth through the training and it was time for me to step up and share this with others.

The Thrive Breathwork Coaching Course was the perfect structure I needed to get me there and not just dream about it. The best part of the training was I healed myself along the way. This training provided me with the safe space to really ‘show up’, the community to support the teachings and myself along the way.

I was no longer doing it alone and I really needed that. The most beneficial aspect of this training was the opportunity to release the emotional blocks that were holding me back with stepping up and out into the world. I was terrified at the thought of this at the first workshop training but by the final workshop I had more confidence in myself to step up. I know I would not have been able to do this on my own.


Nicholas de Castella

‘My work has grown out of my inner search for a richer, fuller and more satisfying life. I have spent much of the last twelve years working with the healing power of the breath, traveling the globe, presenting his work and researching the latest emotional clearing and empowerment techniques.

I am the Founder of the Australian Breathwork College, a Quantum Breathwork Trainer, a Quantum Process Practitioner and trained in John Bradshaw’s ‘Non-shaming’ Therapy.

I have been working in personal development for fourteen years. During this time, I have facilitated private sessions, weekly group meetings and Emotional Mastery Programs around Australia, in New Zealand, USA, Canada, South Africa and England.

I believe in the innate goodness and innocence of humanity. That we are all doing the best we can to find and express love with the skills and experience available.

Through my I see that many people today are living in pain caused by the suppression of their emotions. I encourage individuals to connect with, accept and express their true feelings. This brings immediate healing and a deepened connection with the truth of who we are.

I currently teach Practical Emotional Intelligence Skills, Meditation, Breathwork, Practitioner Trainings, Heart Mastery Seminars and Relationship Skills.

My major goal is to teach about open hearted living and to facilitate the realization of the beauty and power that is available to each of us when we open our hearts’.

Susan de Castella

Hi, My name is Susan de Castella. I am a coach/facilitator/trainer with the Australian Breathwork Academy and Institute of Heart Intelligence.

I have over 20-years of experience facilitating Breathwork sessions for people who are grieving, stuck, blocked, depressed or suffering with anxiety. I help them be happier, more successful in their lives, improve their health, deepen their relationships, and live life fully.

I help people find clarity in their lives, clear the blockages, connect with their heart, their passion, life’s purpose, and commitment, so they can live the life they were born to live!

I work with the feelings underlying the issues that cause problems and challenges in people’s lives. I believe and have experienced personally that ‘Healing is in the feeling.’

This is about getting out of your head and into your heart. Letting your heart lead the way, so your life becomes congruent with your life’s passion and purpose.

I have a successful private Thrive Well-Being Coach practice. I facilitate Womanhood seminars and, together with my husband Nicholas, conduct Passionately Alive seminars and Thrive Well-Being Coach Trainings.

People tell me I have an innate ability to share my compassion, understanding and care to support their needs.

“Thrive Breathwork has enabled me to facilitate people towards their most fulfilling and rich lives. I love the work. It is so satisfying to see people making positive shifts in their lives.”
