About Paul Thomas
Welcome and thanks for dropping by. My name is Paul Thomas and I am the creator of this website.
I was born in Dunedin New Zealand and I lived there until I was 8 years old and then moved to a small town in the North of England. My parents were both music teachers, so I followed their steps and started playing the French Horn. I was a pretty shy introverted kid and I didn’t really come out of my shell until I went to University.
I was in this new place, surrounded by 18 year olds most of whom had left home for the first time. No one knew the old me, so I took on a new persona and became a lot more extravert and confident. For me, going to University was as much about life experience as getting a degree. At this time, I also discovered meditation and used it as a way to help me through my final exams.
After graduation, I moved to London and that’s when my interest in Personal Development really began. I joined an NLP practice group and went on to become an NLP practitioner. I also completed a number of other courses such as the Landmark Forum. I was a pretty confident young man now, but still had an acute shyness around women which I slowly overcame with the help of books such as “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” by Susan Jeffers. Around this time, I became dissatisfied with the 9 to 5 routine and attempted a couple of network marketing businesses which didn’t do so well.
2000 was a big year for me as I met my future wife Rita. We went on to get married in 2003 and we are still happily married today. I became a Software Trainer (a job I loved doing!) and it felt that my life was finally coming together. I even had a successful DJ business on the side. With life going so well, my interest in Personal Development dropped a little, but I would still go to the occasional seminar with Rita (as she is quite into self improvement too.)
Big Move to Australia
At the end of 2009 we emigrated to Australia and now live in Sydney. This move really bought us closer together and we love the outdoor lifestyle here. However, I had become bored of being a Software Trainer and I still had this yearning to work for myself. I started to immerse myself more in Personal Development material, especially the Law of Attraction and Hypnosis. In 2014 I started an Email Newsletter to share my new knowledge and developed a following of 13,000 people over the next 18 months. In 2015, I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and am looking forward to starting my practice very soon.
2016 marks the launch of this website, a facebook page and a youtube channel.
I hope you enjoy reading my material. If you have any comments, feel free to contact me.
