I'm based outside Newry - in easy reach of
Belfast & Dublin and all points in between (Banbridge, Armagh, Lurgan,Dundalk, Drogheda, Monaghan,). I
also work via Skype with Clients across Europe and beyond.
As you can see from my face, I have been round the block a few times. If I were a male model this
might be a problem. As a therapist however, having plenty of life experience to draw from is a distinct advantage.
Many people can see therapists as someone who has all the theory, having read all the books, but has no experience
from the School of Life. Having spent most of my working life either on building sites and as an entertainer
believe me I have plenty.
So why the change of career? Well to tell the truth I have been doing this stuff, in
terms of encouraging people to overcome their fears and fulfill their potential, daily for 30 years. Mostly this
was through community activism, community arts, sports coaching etc. So it's more of an extension than a change.
Also, I grew up in Coventry, but my mother Bridie was very much the matriarch for the many young people from her
native village of Bangor Erris (Co. Mayo) who settled in Coventry. So listening, counseling and going the extra
mile to help people is a family tradition. The difference now is that my formal training as a hypnotherapist has
given me the scientific background, psychological skills and , most importantly, many more tools to do it. And as
any tradesman will tell you - you can't beat the right tool for the job.
I am proud to have trained with Trevor Silvester, the founder of
Cognitive Hypnotherapy at the Quest Institute in London. TQI is an organization and group of like-minded people for
whom ethics, respect and dignity are principles not buzz-words. I spent years looking for the right, reputable
place and people to train with, and once I'd discovered the Quest Institute I knew instantly that I'd found it. I
have travelled thousands of miles, invested hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds in my training. You can
access the benefits of that for a fraction of the price.
Quest-trained therapists are trained to meet the client in their 'Model of The World'.
Basically that means that we adapt our tools and experience to suit your issue - not the other way around. We know
that one size does not fit all and your treatment will be specifically designed around you. Made to measure instead
of off-the-shelf. This makes us refreshingly different. Don't take my word for it - ask around.
