Hi I’m Garry Kelly. I am a first-time daddy of a little girl who already has her father wrapped around her tiny finger. I’m also an entrepreneur and set-up my most recent company, GK Media, in 2013 offering services in online digital content and training in the areas of Film, TV, Radio, and Social Media. I studied Film & TV in GMIT and graduated in 2001 with a distinction where I then founded DIG Productions Ltd. with David Hegarty & Ian W. Davis. Over the years we’ve produced short films, documentaries, music videos & a feature film with the Irish Film Board. I have also worked in both national and local radio as a Producer/Presenter since 2007, and I’m fully qualified with the Teaching Council of Ireland to teach Film & TV and Radio & Sound Production. I love dogs, watching movies, reading non-fiction, drinking vino, and listening to Napolean Hill and Earl Nightingale. I embrace life with all my heart and surround myself with positive forward thinking people. That is why I am so happy to be a team member of The Couch. Everyone here is just amazing and I hope we can help you meet your goals and make some amazing discoveries along the way. I’m primarily over the Podcast section of the website, so feel free to get in touch if there’s anyone you would like to hear Yvonne interview. I’ll also be giving you some tips on social media and digital content, so I look forward to interacting with you.

Hi, I’m Deirdre Cunningham, a qualified nutritional therapist and devoted runner, married to James and mother to Ally, Ryan, Jamie, Robyn and Molly.  It is my mission in life to help as many people as possible to feel and look their best through advice on diet and nutrition (both 1:1 consultancy work and group sessions). I firmly believe that for diet and nutritional advice to work it has to be personal, with built in balance and flexibility.  There are no quick fixes and fad diets don’t work!  Instead, I educate people to make simple changes and offer techniques to make this transition to health not only possible, but enjoyable.  I incorporate an exercise regime and some motivational tips to enhance a healthy lifestyle. Nutritional therapy is beneficial for weight management, digestive issues, blood sugar control, hormonal imbalances, low energy, fertility and more.

I’m Celia García. I was born in Segovia in Spain but now live in Madrid. I trained and now work in Psychology. I travelled to Ireland as an Au Pair to Galway many years ago and while there I fell in love with Ireland and with my Irish family, The Tiernan’s. My partner and I recently moved into our first home, an apartment on the north side of Madrid. I love interior design and am enjoying making our new house a cosy home. My work in psychology is very demanding so I like to spend my free time crafting, baking and planning my upcoming wedding next Summer. I will be writing about living in Spain, the food, the culture, my favourite recipes, crafts, my work in psychology and my wedding plans.
