Nathaniel Hodder-Shipp, B.Msc, CADC-II, is President and Founder of Breathwork for Recovery and has worked as a professional healer for almost a decade. Using an arsenal of techniques with a special focus on breathwork, Nathaniel has helped thousands of people process trauma, disarm negative thought patterns, and maintain healthy and happy relationships with themselves and loved ones. Nathaniel’s client base ranges from those seeking relief from everyday anxiety to people suffering from severe emotional and physical trauma and desperate for help, and his specialty includes working in addiction treatment facilities to help accelerate clients’ journey to recovery.

It was in treatment where Nathaniel first discovered breathwork, following ongoing struggles with addiction and several failed attempts at suicide. He was disconnected, at odds with his own integrity, and running away from life, but everything changed once Nathaniel discovered breathwork. His skepticism and resistance to traditional healing techniques dissolved as he saw how swiftly the practice shifted his perspective on life, love and sobriety. After leaving treatment, Nathaniel became certified by David Elliott to teach this kind of powerful healing to others and since then, has studied substance use disorder, sexual abuse, and other trauma to offer clients comprehensive and professional care. With this unique perspective and skillset, Nathaniel now works full time helping empower people to make the necessary changes in their lives toward long-term health and happiness.

Nathaniel was trained to facilitate breathwork professionally and has completed the David Elliott Healer Training series multiple times. He also is the founder of The Recovery Circle, a weekly support group led by trained breathwork professionals to offer an effective alternative to traditional 12-step programs.
