Kevin J. Hall, BSc (hons), MSc
Psychotherapist, Business Coach, Counsellor
SummaryI was born in 1974 in Birmingham, Great Britain where I lived until I was 23 years old. There I completed an honours degree in International Business and German and subsequently a masters in cognitive science specialising in aspects related to psychology and computer science. During my studies I spent a year abroad at Innsbruck University. This time had a profound influence on me. I developed a fascination and deep respect for Austria and its people during this time. After completing my studies I worked for some years as a management consultant in London, the Netherlands, Brussels, Heidelberg and Vienna where I finally settled in 2000. In Vienna I met my wife and it was also here that in 2012 our daughter was born. Vienna is now where I call home.
It was also in Austria that I found my passion for psychology again following training in conflict management in 2007. I began to deepen my knowledge in interpersonal and communication skills and completed Practitioner and Master courses in NLP. In parallel I undertook vocational training in coaching. I became aware that there were still some gaps in my knowledge which would be important to fulfil in order to accompany and assist my coaching clients as effectively as I would like. I decided to address this issue by studying for and obtaining my qualifications as a psychotherapist (Österreichisches Propädeutikum und Fachspezifikum). I subsequently worked in various institutions providing mental health care and social services before finally electing to focus my attention on private practice and corporate health care.
In my practice I work with individuals, couples, families and teams. My services include individual psychotherapy and counselling, relationship counselling and couples therapy, family therapy, business coaching and workshops and training for companies. I work with techniques and approaches from systemic therapy and family therapy, trauma therapy, hypnotherapy and clinical hypnosis and NLP. Thematically there is a broad spread of topics which I have been trained in and work with. That being said, I have a particular professional interest in burnout, performance coaching, trauma, grief and bereavement, anxiety and panic disorder.
