About Me

Your Virtual Mentor.

Hi, my name is Michael McGuinness, I am a clinical hypnotherapist, weight loss coach, and life coach.

The goal of the life mastery blog is to:
♦ inspire you,
♦ motivate you
♦ empower you to reach your potential.

My Story.

I was born in Carrowteige, North Mayo in 1958. After post-primary school, I headed for Dublin and St. Patrick's College of Education where I was awarded my Bachelor of Education degree. Subsequently, I started my professional career in 1981.

I always had a fascination with the human mind and with hypnosis. In the early nineties, I got my opportunity to study hypnotherapy when the first hypnotherapy college in Ireland was founded: The Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I graduated in 1995 and started in private practice in Maynooth, Co. Kildare.

I returned home to Mayo in 2007 and took up residence in Castlebar where I founded The Mayo Hypnosis Clinic. Since then, I have helped thousands of people from the West of Ireland and further afield to overcome their barriers to living a happier and more successful life.

The Blog.

I started this blog in October 2016 to assist my readers become happier and more successful in life. Mindset is EVERYTHING, unless YOU change nothing will change. If you don't change you will get more of what you already have in life.

Success is something that you attract not something you pursue. So, you work on yourself. Happiness is not contained in what you get, it is contained in what you become. My goal is to help you grow and advance in achieving your potential in life.

Challenges, setbacks and disappointments happen in life, the question is how you handle them. All you can do is get stronger, get wiser and get better. Life happens, don't wish things could be easier, wish you could be better. Don't wish for less problems, wish for more skills and wisdom. It not what happens that matter, it is who you do that matters.

Sharing is caring.

New ideas can change lives. A particular post may not make a big impact on your life where you are today on your journey but it may provide a vital insight or a new perspective that could be the starting point of transformation in a friend's life.

I have new posts every week. Please, share my posts with your friends or followers with the share buttons at the end of posts. YOU can play your part in empowering others, don't underestimate the power of one.
