Mattie Slattery was born and grew up in Clarecastle, a village in County Clare in the mid-west of Ireland. He is one of ten children, a father and grandfather. His childhood was uneventful, other than what was common to most children growing up in Ireland in the late nineteen fifties and sixties.

He is the author of “How to Manage Troublesome Thoughts and Feelings: name it, share it, replace it.” His life experiences have led him to a way of living that has evolved into the approach to peace of mind and contentment detailed in the book. In this website you will be introduced to ideas and techniques from this approach.
