I am a graduate of University College Dublin, and the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. My early career was spent as a salesman in Britain, working my way up to a marketing management position with Lever Brothers. I then left, to join the Irish Management Institute in Dublin. I spent many happy years there as a Senior Management Specialist. It was at the IMI that I first began to develop my own style of management training - based on hypnosis !
I left the IMI in 1981 to develop my own independent practice. I then began to specialise in the area of Personal Development. And so I have been ever since...working as a management training consultant, coach & hypnotherapist.
I myself learned the healing art of Hypnotherapy, mainly through intuition & experience. However, I also studied under the NLP "gurus" Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Like every modern hypnotherapist, I was also inspired by the work of the late Milton Erickson. But I mostly owe Dr Dave Dobson of St Juan Island (near Seattle)...who inadvertantly "kick-started" me into this way of working, more than thirty years ago.
Combining my experience of both Management Training and Hypnosis, I have also developed my own unique form of Executive Coaching. It's called Hypno-Coaching.
I have also been a practising Hypnotherapist for over 30 years. My very first experience of Hypnotherapy, was on the receiving end 35 years ago ! The incredible Dr Jack Gibson of Naas, got me off cigarettes back then - permanently !
