TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND HOW THE PAIN DOCTOR BRAND CAME ABOUT.
My name is TI which is short for Tosin Imhogiemhe and I’m popularly known as “Pain Doctor” on the media. I’m a TV Host, Emotional Intelligence Expert, Author, Psychotherapist and Life Coach. Basically, all I do revolves around human capacity building and my vision is to become a leading voice of hope, healing and inspiration. This entails giving hope to the hopeless, healing people emotionally and inspiring them to discover, develop and maximize their potential for a successful life.
DID PAIN INSPIRE THIS NEW BOOK?
Well, I can’t exactly say it did but then, at the time I got inspired to write the book, I was going through tough times. Hence, when I heard the phrase, “treasure in your trash,” instinctively, I knew it was something I would work on. So, I initially wrote an article about it before finally expanding it into a book. More importantly, I’ve come to realize that this subject of pain is my niche because I tend to relate with it more and I have unique insights about the subject.
I HAVE HEARD YOU SAY THAT THIS BOOK WAS ACTUALLY YOUR FIRST BOOK, HOW COME?
Yes, it was the first manuscript I wrote and successfully completed but after I did, I didn’t have the financial capacity to get it published on the hard cover. So, rather than get discouraged, I kept writing until I wrote PAIN IS A GIFT and then I was now in better shape financially. But there was a dilemma. I didn’t know what book to publish because both books were phenomenal. However, my gut told me to opt for the new book (PAIN IS A GIFT) I had written because the title was more catchy and my story was included in it. Hence, I published it and the rest is history.

OUT OF ALL THINGS, WHY WRITE ON PAIN?
This is one question I’ve always been asked on the air and the truth is, I didn’t decide to write about pain because I had witnessed pain and wanted to find a solution. No! I went through pain myself. I often say that I went through the fiery finances of this life such that when pain struck me I died to who I was to give birth to who I am still becoming because I am still evolving. However, after I had gone through years of pain and difficulties, one day I reflected on my life and realized that I had grown through everything I had gone through. It was at that instant I reiterated to myself that pain was a gift and I said I will write a book about it in future, thinking it will take my years to accomplish, not knowing that I would get it done a year after. So it all started with my experiences.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH THIS BOOK WILL ACCOMPLISH?
Well, PAIN IS A GIFT has already made a lot of success. In fact, it made me who I am today because there’s hardly anything I do now that wasnt inspired by that book. it sprung me into the limelight and got me constant interviews on TV and Radio. So, of course, I would want this book to surpass the former in all ramifications. More importantly, I want it to gain global dominance.

IS YOUR NEW TV SHOW ABOUT PAIN? HOW DID IT COME ABOUT?
Well, it’s quite related because it’s about life issues revolving around dating, mating and relating and I had previously featured twice as a guest on the show before and the producer liked my delivery. So, it happened that the hosts of the show relocated and then they needed new presenters. Hence, they came for me, offering me the job and saying that my personality and profile fit the program and I opted for it.

WHAT REMARK DO YOU HAVE FOR THOSE READING THIS AND WHO ARE GOING THROUGH PAIN OF ANY KIND?
First things first. Buddha said, “pain is inevitable but suffering is optional.” In other words, We would go through tribulations here on earth but how we respond is what matters because if we respond negatively, we would become bitter but if we respond positively, we would become better. Hence, irrespective of whatever challenge you are going through, you are greater than it and can overcome it if only you put your willpower to a test and that’s what this new book talks about. TREASURE IN YOUR TRASH reveals the untold truths that they seldom tell us about our unlimited potential and how our minds are being imprisoned because we don’t know how to manage it and then it goes on to highlight biographies of people who have been through pain and yet emerged victorious. In the end, it states the steps to take to find the treasure in your trash
