My Story - Joseph Costello - Hypnotherapist, NLP Life & Mind Coach

My Story

My journey into Hypnotherapy is quite different from most practitioners. At the age of 25, I was down on life to the point of suicide. Like many others, my childhood was not “ideal”… or at least this is what I thought. The mind will only remember the things it will focus on. I excelled at sports and I tended to pick things up quite easily while this can be good it can also be the reverse. However, school wasn’t for me so I left at the age of 15 and began working in a coal yard. While I learned the value of hard work, I also began to associate with the proverbial “wrong crowd”. I was 17 years old and an 8-year cycle of addictions followed. Then it happened, an onslaught of depression that no drug could fix…

I hit a Brick Wall.


The Change & The Chance

My life was like a huge rollercoaster. Unfortunately once you have your big ups you must go through your big downs. I had no self-belief or confidence. I was determined to get better and work hard to improve my life but there were underlying factors that were holding me back. Upon advice, I sought out hypnotherapy to rid myself of my addictions. During the sessions, I underwent a hypnoanalysis that revealed many issues I was suppressing and things that I didn’t want to face. However I learned that in order to move forward we have to look back in the past for a final time to create your future.

The Cure – Pulling Positives from Negatives

Hypnotherapy & Nlp Life & Mind Coaching are alternative therapies with unprecedented capabilities. They reach much further into the causes of destructive habits than conventional methods. I know this from personal experience. Hypnotherapy enabled me to finally face my problems with a renewed outlook.

The same year of my therapy (2004), I focused my efforts and started a limousine company. Within four years of buying my first car, my company had eight cars. When the recession of 2008 hit Ireland hard people thought that my company couldn’t survive. After all, it became the worst recession in our history. My mindset, however, was:

“There is No Such Thing as Recession as when you’ve had Depression.”

In 2011 I grew my company to 31 cars. Absolute Limos was Europe’s largest limousine company within one of the smallest population of cities of Europe. In 2013, I purchased my first warehouse. With it, I began a highly successful warehousing venture owning and operating a huge commercial warehouse portfolio. Today it is a multi-million-euro commercial enterprise and it’s growing day by day. I also run and own a successful management company, and of course, my self-help company.

What the mind believes the mind perceives.

Giving Back

Obviously, my connection to hypnotherapy, NLP and Mindfulness techniques is deeply personal. Upon experiencing the positive effects of the treatment, I began training in hypnotherapy and related alternative therapies with the goal to help others. Over the years, I’ve acquired many skill sets. Today it is my passion and privilege to share my learnings and teachings with you. I believe that when we mix and match my entire skill set, together we can reach the finish line quickly and effectively.

Think of me as a builder with different tools to help you build the life you want.

Hypnotherapy, NLP and Mindfulness is like a set of keys that unlock the doors to your hidden potentials. Therapists like myself who have suffered from low confidence, addictions, and suicidal tendencies understand what it means and what it takes to turn your life around.

More often than not the people that suffer from addictions, low confidence and depression are simply running the wrong mental “program”. This creates the habit, which creates the pattern, which creates the routine.

Think of me as a computer installer that will help you reprogram your mind and install the life you deserve.

Often, conventional means of dealing with the above problems are ineffective. They may cause people to mistakenly believe they are a lost cause. I sincerely invite you to investigate how Hypnotherapy, NLP and Mindfulness can be THE unique solution to some of your most pressing problems. All of this comes combined with my own personal and professional experience.

I believe WE will make it happen.
