Rhoda Draper was born and educated in Ireland, and worked in television in BBC, London, and RTE, Dublin. In order to develop her interest in how the mind works, she left a long and successful career to study at Trinity College, Dublin, where she graduated with an honours degree in psychology. After further certification in psychotherapy, counselling, clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and TFT, she developed her skills as a tutor in these subjects.

With her colleague, Sean Collins, she later became involved in research in the field of applied behavioural medicine and, in 2004, they co-authored a book on the subject, ‘The Key Model – A new strategy for cancer recovery ’. She now works in private practice specialising in anxiety-related conditions and life-threatening illness.
