Here you will find a wide range of tools designed to help you with the various challenges we have to mange in life. I believe that the public should have access to these free of charge. Browse and see what you like. There are also some position papers on my work as a trainer of young doctors.

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

In addition to my academic and clinical responsibilities, I am available to speak on a range of topics either to gathered audiences or to the media. Below are examples of recent media appearances. I am currently a member of the communications panel of the Psychological Society of Ireland. My interests range from emotions, emotional intelligence to stress management and to the many aspects of training doctors in effective communication skills. I am the current elected Deputy National Representative of the European Association for Communication in Healthcare (EACH) for Ireland.
