About me...

A return to beautiful Ireland from the East, due to the Global Pandemic... 

GIFTED a wonderful opportunity to bring home our proven-and-unique combination of specialised Healthcare practices, including powerful NLP and TLT Coaching therapies, right here into the heart of Leinster.

"Hey there,

I'm Tara, and I am originally from he Emerald Isle, an explorer and seeker by heart! 

I feel deeply fortunate to have been exploring this incredible globe for more than 25 years, immersing myself in far-out world cultures and exploring life and traditional healthcare practices in diverse surroundings. In this time I have also undergone extensive trainings, including several years of studies within my field (s) of medicine, healthcare and wellness.

Through deep exploration of these methods: 

  • I was able to create and run several local clinics in 3rd world regions for affordable and accessible healthcare. 

  • Work in natural disasters treating up to 600 patients a day,

  • Experiment, undergo and discover some of the deepest detoxification application protocols in modern day.

I don't do things by half!

... I simply love to jump in deep, into new discoveries with child-like wonder...

for ABSOLUTE total immersion,

to really test my resilience, and further understand the power of the mind-body-healing. During this time I explored meditation and the martial arts, spending lengthy periods of time staying and learning in Buddhist, Taoist & Hindu temples throughout the East. I have undergone lengthy periods of complete Sensory deprivation and isolation for Mind-Body detox - to try to understand the minds power and depth, in a resurrected ancient practice in Western Asia.

All of this has gifted me the opportunities to explore deeper:

  • the power of mind-body connection in health and happiness - the core of a 5000 year old traditional medicine,

  • the cyclical flows of nature and her role in health, and our own balance,

  • the Neuro pathways of patterning in behaviour and poor thinking, that keeps us stuck in life, or making the same mistakes in life, over-and-over,

  • trauma disassociation,

  • how to work with PTSD, and so much more...

... And now, here, during these extraordinary times, I find myself back in my beautiful homelands with the opportunity to bring these powerful Clinical practices here to you!

These same methods that I have been both practicing in the East (& West) and also teaching Internationally to medical Drs and Healthcare specialists from across the globe, to implement into their clinical practice, for nearly a decade...

- now available in our clinic in beautiful Co.Kilkenny, Ireland.

A magical Silver lining during a unique and challenging time in our history.

Greatest of Warmest welcome to you..."
