Born to Hungarian and Croatian parents in the former Yugoslavia, Karlo moved to Sydney in the early 1990s to study Natural Therapies at Nature Care College. After graduating, he moved to the Blue Mountains near Sydney. For nine and a half years, Karlo worked with many other complimentary & alternative therapists at Crystal Lodge Health Retreat. In 2007 he set up a private practice as a Naturopath and Remedial Massage Therapist.
Karlo has two daughters, which provided him a first-hand experience in raising children (both young adults now).
From an early age, Karlo has been interested in the mind-body connection and mindfulness practices. His search in understanding the mind led him to explore various methods; amongst others he extensively explored Byron Katie's "The Work" and Dr. John Demartini's "Demartini Method". Inspired by these, in 2011 he decided to undertake further tertiary studies, and in 2014 he graduated with honours in Psychology form Charles Sturt University. Since 2015 he has been practicing as a psychologist/psychotherapist in a Katoomba group practice. As part of his ongoing desire for learning ways to help others, and in order to further his own experience of awakening to deeper aspect of himself, Karlo trained with The Leela School as an advanced psychotherapist.
Additionally, Karlo completed an
Advanced Trauma Specialist Training, also known as the
THE RICHARDS TRAUMA PROCESS (TRTP)
