About Henry

GOB 0080 hiRes - transparent.png

Henry Gobus is author of groundbreaking books Human Ascent and It's Always the Love, and is also a psychologist working in Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

He was born in the former Dutch New Guinea and lived in South America and Holland before migrating to Australia in 1977.

After a career in both the Dutch and Queensland police services, Henry became a mature age student, gaining a BPsych and Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology.


His interest in psychology led him to contemplate the evolution of human intelligence and evolution in general.


Henry’s book Human Ascent challenges Charles Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' idea. Henry argues that self-sacrifice and affection drive the change of life forms over time.

In his book It's Always the Love, Henry explains how to rid ourselves permanently from anxiety and dispels the fallacy that anxiety is an evolutionary fight or flight leftover.
