Andrew Mackay

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS13-00325

Location: Ipswich

Having spent a fair degree of time in my 20's travelling around the world I was fortunate to observe and experience many attributes to other cultures which helped shape my knowledge starting the path to more deeply understanding behaviour both in myself as well as others.
Raising my family in Ipswich in my 30's, 40's and now into my 50's it has brought an even greater demand to understanding our behaviours both of a positive and negative nature.
Fortunately, my passion for self-development and inner standing and the depth at which Holographic Kinetics works (4 years of courses and practice weekends) it has put me in a strong and compassionate position whereby i can continue to hold a safe space for my clients despite the enormity of the issue.
Whilst the alternative mental health modality of Holographic Kinetics is so beneficial to everyone with all nature of issues, because of it's non-invasive nature, many clients who do not wish to discuss the ins and outs of their issues or traumas find it particularly valuable for clearing life long problems.
Through years of work and personal experience I have found both modalities to be highly effective and wish to share my successes with you.
