My name is Patrick Connolly and I was born in the year 1945 on a small farm in County Sligo near the beautiful seaside resort of Enniscrone. My schooling at that time consisted of starting school at seven years of age and finished at thirteen and a half years. Any further education I received was mainly self-taught. I then worked for years at construction. I also worked as a television technician. I then did a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and for a while practiced therapy on a part-time basis. I eventually undertook practicing hypnotherapy and psychotherapy on a full-time basis. I ended up having one day weekly clinics in Ballina, Galway, Sligo, Athlone and Enniskillen.
While practicing in Enniskillen, I enrolled for a Counselling Skills course at what was then Fermanagh College. Dr Jennifer Conryn from the University of Ulster was designing courses that could see Fermanagh College become a branch of the University of Ulster. Over the course of four years I obtained a Certificate in Counselling Skills, a Certificate in Counselling and a Diploma in Counselling from the University of Ulster. I then proceeded to do a B.A. (Hons) in Psychology with the Open University. This was achieved in six half-year modules. After obtaining the B.A. (Hons) in Psychology I obtained a Diploma in Personal and Executive Coaching, a Certificate in Training and Development. I then proceeded to become a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (N.L.P.) and just three years ago I obtained a Masters in Social Science from the Open University.
I also hold a QQI (FETAC) Level 5 in Conflict Resolution and a QQI (FETAC) Level 6 in Mediation. I am on the British Psychological Society Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) in Occupational, Ability and Personality Psychometric Testing. I also hold the European Test User Certificate (Level 2) Work and Organisational Assessment. I am a member of the British Psychological Society. Registered member of the Association of Natural Medicine. Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Member of the Association of Contextual Behavioural Science. I have over twenty years of dealing with, and helping to resolve, the many and varied problems that people encounter in their daily lives.
