Have you ever wondered if you could be hypnotized? Or if someone around you could be? Join Mary K our guest speaker, an advanced clinical hypnotherapist, as she discusses and demonstrates how she can change your life by changing your mind.
Our mind works to protect us, to teach us how to live within our environment, how to live safely and efficiently, all by the age of 6. From that time on our patterns are set. Our subconscious has gathered the information needed that will form our judgments throughout our lives. Unfortunately for us the subconscious is a bit lazy and is not eager to change these patterns it has worked so hard to learn. THUS, repetitive patterns are born.
We know change is better, we know our lives will be better and healthier if we stopped smoking, lost weight, or learned to be more confident and less fearful. Join Mary as she discusses how to lay new neural pathways that initiate and enforce change with in your life, by changing the patterns of how you Think.
Emmett Technique is a unique body therapy technique created by Ross Emmett. It is so effective and acceptable that medical practitioners and lay therapists alike are requesting to learn it. Treatments can be done fully clothed and incorporate a gentle, physical release of muscle groups while using a verbal approach to create attitude change.
Ross Emmett’s “Emmett Technique” has been growing in popularity worldwide since he first started teaching the technique in 1999. The technique has wide appeal: not only is it being enthusiastically picked up by Bowen therapists, massage therapists and medical staff, but we are seeing an increasing number of exercise professionals such as Pilates Instructors and Personal Trainers eager to learn and use this remarkable technique. It is a technique which can be used in a truly complementary way with any other body work or exercise system offering a valuable addition to anyone working to ease pain and discomfort or restore musculoskeletal function to others. That’s how Ross encourages all of us to use his work, though it is a powerful standalone technique in its own right.

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.
Eugenie commenced a 4 year professional training in 1986 with the UK Training College of Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy, London. She gained invaluable experience working with numerous therapeutic skills and hypnotic approaches. She went on to complete a further 2 year Advanced Hypnotherapy course with Norman Vaughton studying specific forms of hypnotherapy relating to sexual abuse, grief counseling, stress related illnesses and obsessive compulsive disorders. One of her areas of specialty is in relationships – helping transform relationships through reconciliation and reconnection.
In 2008 Eugenie completed a 3 year course in Holland, studying an energetic healing technique – “Discharge of Neural Aspects”. This technique releases trauma from the past that is trapped in cellular memory by working to remove the core issues of the trauma. People report a much greater degree of clarity afterwards.
There is no such thing as a “one fix fits all” approach to therapy – an individual’s needs are most effectively supported by therapy that is structured specifically for that person. Eugenie therefore uses many different approaches and styles of therapy. With increasing experience her work has become more focused on spiritual empowerment which opens the way for people to gain deeper insights into the wisdom of their own core / essence.

“I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.” – Lauren Bacall
Whether we realize it or not our faces reveal a great deal of information about us. Much of our societal conditioning has been around consensus notions of beauty, but every face contains beauty. Our features reflect our strengths and qualities, and the character we have brought to bear on the life challenges we have faced. By learning to recognize what our faces are telling us we can find enhanced reasons to believe in ourselves and the gifts we bring to the world. Face Reading has been used in Chinese business and medicine for at least 3,000 years. It is a practical tool that provides information about personality types, behavioral patterns, health, approach to relationships, attitudes to money and many others.
Joseph McGuire has nearly three decades of experience in professional face reading, having taught it as a healthcare tool in both Germany and Ireland, and has now brought this invaluable skill into the business arena in Ireland for the first time. He has been featured on Ireland AM, Newstalk, KFM, and in the Sunday Independent, Evening Herald and several other media outlets
