“I attended Logosynthesis Basic Training delivered by Mary O Donoghue in ….. I was immediately captivated & convinced by this new (to me) concept. Having worked for 30 years as a therapist I recognized the enormous potential in what was not only a deceptively simple & powerfully effective technique but also a way of being, thinking & perceiving clients & their issues. Mary introduced the ideas & techniques in a gentle, easy to follow & clear manner. Her own understanding of Logosynthesis, having been intimately involved in its evolution, combined with her natural ability as a gifted teacher & trainer guarantees course attendees an exciting, challenging & fruitful experience. As a result of this introduction I went on to attend many more of Mary’s training courses, both in Ireland & various European cities. Logosynthesis is now an integral part of my therapy practice as my understanding & use of it continues to develop & grow. It also informs my personal philosophy of life & energy in its various forms. Thank you Mary for this wonderful gift.”

“I have found the logosynthesis training to be both interesting and helpful. I especially liked that it was taught in a way that I found easy to get to grips with, easy to ask questions and get answers in order for me to understand if there was something that I just didn’t get. I found Mary to be very helpful and encouraging during the practice groups and if anyone was struggling with anything she was always on hand to help and simplified it for us and in doing so everyone had a great understanding of what was expected of us and of what she was teaching and thus enabled us to then move to the next module feeling confident and capable. I practice Logosynthesis on myself when I need to and I always find my levels of distress decrease and I feel so much better. I would thoroughly recommend Mary as a teacher, facilitator, supervisor. What ever role she plays in your training she will give her best to it and you will come away from the training feeling empowered and ready to take on the next level.”

“The Logosynthesis Basic course was not only effectively presented by Mary, but it was her honesty towards herself, life and everybody in the room that made the learning process even more enjoyable and efficient. The environment she created was calm, humorous and enlightening throughout the whole weekend. In my work life, I have gained vital skills which I regularly use and heavily rely on. In my personal life I am seeing positive changes happen everyday since discovering Logosynthesis. Language and articulation are truly powerful tools for creating positive progression in life and I can’t recommend this training enough.”

“I didn’t know I was looking for someone to guide me. I am glad I took a chance and contacted Allen. I am stubborn and set in my ways and I am sure Allen wanted to throw the towel in a time or two. What I didn’t count on is the fact he’s exceptionally intuitive. He knows how to work around the walls you’ve set up and helps guide through your obstacles. All the sessions were a new experience each time. I’ve changed the way I spend money and how I deal with people. If, it wasn’t for him giving me subtle word clues I would’ve continued on the path I was on. I don’t recommend people often, but Allen knows how to help you. Take it from a cynical person it does work. Take the chance to make your life, in balance. We all need a little guidance.”
“I don’t know where I’d be without Allen, he’s a wonder! Initially I reached out for help on a more personal level but it’s expanded to a few different areas. He’s easy to talk to with his rational and friendly approach and has helped me to understand how to find the important things I need to work towards and how to better understand myself.
Together we work on real solutions to move forward successfully, he’s shown me that no problem can’t be overcome. Allen stands behind me as I work towards my goals, both personally and professionally. He’s always there encouraging me, poking if he knows I’m capable of more, giving smart, positive and useful advice all the way. My outlook has changed thanks to the different approaches we have tried and new things to consider that I would never have thought of. His support and coaching has made a huge difference to my life, I’m discovering new potentials I didn’t think I had thanks to his guidance. He’s a wonderful all-rounder coach and now I feel a lot more positive looking towards my future. Anyone thinking about it, give it a try, you won’t regret it. Thank you Allen!”

“Personal coaching can be about becoming the best version of yourself, and about living a life of gusto, purpose, and impact. My coaching experience with Allen has not only helped me work towards those things, but it has enabled me to discover what makes me tick, what stands in my way, and which priorities and goals are truly important to me. Allen has the gift of being able to find “hidden” tools that allow clients to realize their goals. My sessions with Allen are always productive and insightful. If you had asked me a year ago if having Skype coaching sessions would be as rewarding or helpful as they have been, I might have been sceptical. Thankfully, Allen is adept at helping me focus on what is really important, and what next steps I need to take. He has fantastic, creative ideas that I’ve found eye-opening, simple and practical. As someone who generally feels reasonably competent, it’s amazing how Allen can help me cut through the diversions to discover what, in retrospect, is the obvious path. That is a unique and skilful gift that he readily shares with others. Whether it’s a challenge that I wasn’t able to work through or a new endeavour that will affect my growth, I can look forward to having Allen’s insights and guidance to help me along that path. What started for me as a focus on “getting good parenting advice” has become much broader and more beneficial. I highly recommend Allen as a positive, knowledgeable and effective coach.”
“I first contacted Allen to help me with navigating a new career in a field that can be frustrating and demoralizing. I felt like he had the unique qualifications I needed to help me succeed and flourish in this business. With his help, I have gained an immeasurable amount of confidence and he has given me a lot of tools that I can use when I get stuck with whatever situation may arise. He has been an unending source of support and encouragement and he challenges me to look at situations from angles that I may not have seen. He has helped me in both my professional and personal life. He is a great listener and he provides a thoughtful and insightful approach to every issue. I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in becoming an improved version of themselves!”
“I came to Allen for help with time management. I was hoping for some straight forward tips and some powerful motivation. I was not ready to face the fact that I was putting up my own hurdles and I was definitely not comfortable exploring why. But, Allen was just so genuine and caring that I couldn’t help but let my guard down with him. Once I did that his warmth and insight made it possible for me to gradually drop my guard altogether, a prospect that would have seemed terrifying only months earlier but has turned out to be more rewarding than I could have imagined. I’m still working on it but, Allen has given me the tools and encouragement to make changes I thought were impossible, not only in how I manage my time but in how I approach life. I am forever grateful.”
“I initially engaged with Allen because I wanted to take up a national role at work in and in order to so I had to go through an election process and make a speech which filled me with trepidation. Through working with Allen I identified my own innate strengths which Allen encouraged me to bring to the fore. In hindsight the biggest thing that Allen’s coaching did for me was to develop a platform upon which I could build on the confidence and skills that were already there. I would highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and reach their true potential.”
“Allen, in a supportive and empathic way, challenged me to set goals. He used his skills in assisting me to break down these goals into steps so as I was able to achieve them while giving practical and insightful advice on how to take that all important first step towards my goals.”
“Allen is an inspirational and motivational coach who challenged me to realize I can reach my full potential in all areas of my life.”
“Allen’s approach is clear, practical and thorough, focusing on growth and development. He kept the sessions focused on all the important issues that we were working on yet was also flexible enough to adapt to the needs of the moment.”
“He has given me the successful tools to stay focused on my goals. I am clearly aware of where I am today, where I want to go and with the skills and tools I have learned from Allen what I need to do to get there. The main difference in my life is that I know how to manage it better and make the right choices to live a balance life. I feel more self aware, focused and in charge of my own life.”
“Since taking that first deep breath so to speak and getting out of my own way my stress level has dropped significantly and overall personal and professional life satisfaction has grown leaps and bounds. This would not have been achieved without the assistance from Allen.”
“While working with Allen I felt supported, encouraged and most of all listened to at all times. His way of working empathetic but in a gentle calm manner he still manages to challenge you to confront the problems you are facing. His skill appears to come naturally to him which I would have no hesitation in recommending him for coaching anyone who feels stuck in any area of their life or career.”
