Monique Gallagher is a Licensed Cybernetic Transposition [CT] Trainer. Monique Gallagher teaches people how to master Cybernetic Transposition, a general success system developed by Stuart Lichtman, MIT engineer. CT is the science of getting what you want by learning how to use the power of the human brain and help recognize and resolve any invisible blocks preventing positive change. Working with Cybernetic Transposition infuses people with new found hope, courage, self esteem and financial well being. Monique has been learning CT for 12 years and teaching it for nine. CT helped Monique bring back her confident and capable Original Self and then guided her to integrate what she had learned but not yet applied to my life. She discovered after working with CT that she was able to integrate her spiritual and personal development knowledge, her intuition, and her varied life experiences into an even more powerful state of knowing and being. Monique became so inspired to show others the power of CT that she cajoled the developer into training her how to teach CT. Her persistence paid off when he created the first ever certified coaching program for her! In teaching these processes she noticed that she is able to instill a sense of enthusiasm, faith and joy which quickly overwrites the fear, doubt and worry that most people are plagued with. This enables them, over time, to step more fully back into ‘creatorship’ of their life without guilt or regret.
