Theo Fleury is many things. Perhaps best known for his time on the ice as an NHL hockey champion, Theo’s most important work has been accomplished outside of the rink.
Theo’s life once carried the markings of a troubled childhood, abuse and coping with emotional pain through addictive and self-destructive behaviours. Finally, ready to truly start his healing process, Theo wrote down his story and published what would quickly become the best-selling memoir, Playing with Fire. Theo has since published a second book, Conversations with a Rattlesnake, written with renowned occupational therapist and neurobiologist, Kim Barthel. Conversations with a Rattlesnake reads like a raw and honest conversation about trauma and healing between Theo and Kim, but it also provides fascinating insight into the inner-workings of our brains and the science behind why we do what we do.
By sharing his experiences, Theo hopes he can provide courage and hope to others struggling with their own demons.
Today, Theo is a healthy, inspirational, agent of change. He is a gifted speaker and crowd facilitator, and his compassionate spirit and unconcealed vulnerability create a safe environment for others to share their own “Me Too” experiences. Without controversy or blame, Theo focuses on helping and leading others down a path of healing.
