A message from Paul:

Understanding what causes people to live happy and successful lives has been a lifelong obsession of mine. Along the way I have studied and practiced many different areas of psychology, philosophy, therapy and coaching, and while my toolbox is certainly overflowing with trusted skills, techniques, insights and interventions, I’m convinced that I’ve only just scratched the surface of what there is to know about what makes us tick! I’m more than happy to accept that I’ll never stop being a student.

The early stages of my ‘grown-up’ adventures as a helping professional saw me getting all Freudian as I became a qualified practicing Hypnoanalyst (an old school therapy that uses hypnosis to help people come to terms with their past).

However, over time I naturally veered towards more modern approaches to supporting my clients in getting more of what they want in their lives. I adopted the philosophy that people aren’t broken – they don’t need fixing – but they do sometimes need a bit of guidance in working out what needs to happen in order for them to be happy and fulfilled. So I expanded my practice by re-training in the fields of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Coaching.

Things have gone from strength to strength since then! The work I now do with people incorporates a unique blend of skills and principles from various areas of Personal Growth and Development, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Design Human Engineering, Transformative Coaching, Positive Psychology, Leadership Effectiveness, Metaphysics, Hypnotherapy and plain old personal experience.

I have also had the great pleasure of gaining a lot of experience as a Leadership Trainer in the corporate field. This has been invaluable in enabling me to design, build and deliver personal development and coaching workshops for both public and business audiences.

Beside my formal studies I have been fortunate enough to have attended many workshops, advanced trainings and seminars from some of my all time heroes in the world of personal development, including: Richard Bandler, Michael Neill, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, Charles Faulkner, Robert Holden, Marianne Williamson, Louise Hay, John DeMartini and Nick Williams.

If I wasn’t getting paid to do this as my job it is what I’d be doing anyway!
