Human Potential, Therapy, Counselling and Consulting

There is in the absence of confession a need to share in secular contexts what was the domain of the sacred. In this country therapies are not regulated and anyone can set up shop. The need for processing human emotion leaves people vulnerable to unscrupulous people abusing this area for personal gain. During the Celtic Tiger years all kinds of coaches were offering success. Now that we see economic failure many are representing this as way to avoid failure and by focussing on success being one of those able to succeed where others do not. We report on those who have succeeded in misusing the these areas for their own benefit.
