Gerry Hussey has more than 12 years experience working as a sports and performance psychologist since graduating from Trinity College, Dublin.
As a performance consultant, Hussey has coached elite athletes from the Irish boxing team at the Beijing and London Olympics, the Munster Rugby squad, and GAA stars among others. He also brings his wealth of experience and wisdom to corporate coaching, working with major companies such as Vodafone and Hewlett Packard.
On Sunday September 29 from 10am to 4pm, Gerry Hussey will host his Positive Living Seminar at the Clayton Hotel.
Hussey has toured extensively around the country and abroad with this and similar interactive seminars, which are focused on motivating people to structure their lives, to build their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to improve their management of time and stress.
The seminar is tailored especially for those who are currently experiencing a major life-changing transition, such as the loss of a job, the break-up of a marriage, serious illness, retirement, or those who simply do not have the confidence to make a necessary change to their daily lives. The Positive Living Seminar helps people find the courage and the psychological skills to become aware of and eliminate negative thinking patterns and self-inhibiting behaviours to be able to effectively manage and structure the full time challenges of work, family, finance, and social relationships.
“Whether you are an athlete or not, people find themselves in pressured situations all the time, where life throws bits and pieces at you that are difficult to manage,” he says. “The Positive Living Seminar helps people from point A where they are right now to point B where they really want to be, and also helps them determine how to get there using simple motivational techniques.”
Returning to his home city of Galway to host this talk, Hussey is aware of the old saying that the harshest critics are the ones you know. However he is determined to help people in the west who find themselves in tough situations who are in need of support, guidance, and real advice. Hussey is determined to take away the stigma attached to looking for help or seeing a psychologist by making his seminars enjoyable, easy to follow, and interactive; developing a fresh approach to the role psychology can play in people’s lives.
The cost of the seminar is €30 and for more information call 087 1509323 or visit the website www.gerryhussey.ie
