Who is Paddy Landau?

Paddy Landau is a Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner, and Life Coach.

He has taken an interest in psychology since his teens, and took a major diversion into the computer world where he was involved as a consultant in finance, life assurance, taxation, and transport, among other areas. He found that certain of his therapy skills were useful in management.

Paddy has trained with multiple trainers in hypnotherapy, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), EFT (emotional freedom technique), life coaching, and others.

He works with people who have stubborn issues that won’t go away, despite their best efforts. Issues that cause you to stumble or falter, or create unhappiness in your life.

Paddy addresses a range of needs, and particularly enjoys working with weight loss, stress, drug abuse, and men with relationship problems.


Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you.
