Director of Trans4mind Training
Author of ‘Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off’
Wallace entered the architecture profession in 1983, working in the profession until he turned 30 years of age. He then set up a small management training business in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he lived.
Success eluded him, because he experienced two mental breakdowns due to the resurfacing of an illness he first experienced when 23. There followed a decade of extreme mental torment from which he emerged a transformed human being. After working for a period for an international charity as a volunteer, he went back to the world of management, this time as a self-employed consultant.
In Dublin, Wallace worked as a personal development trainer, but realized he had insufficient energy to carry on with his public speaking engagements, due to his mental condition. Feeling at a dead end, Wallace turned within for guidance and received powerful inspiration to work as a Heart to Heart coach on an Internet magazine, being immediately guided toward Peter Shepherd and the Trans4mind emagazine.
Wallace accepted Peter's offer to become the principle Life Coach at Trans4mind.com straight away and, after a number of months, Wallace and Peter began to develop the Heart to Heart coaching service and the Trans4mind website together. Today, after a number of life changing inner experiences and a marked improvement in Wallace's health, he has felt inspired to return to public speaking in his role as an inspirational speaker, introducing the public to a more tranquil way of life through his Trans4mind Personal Development Training workshops in Dublin and now online at Trans4mind.com. Wallace is Director of Training at Trans4mind and he co-developed the Trans4mind Training curriculum with Peter Shepherd.
Wallace lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife Carolyn. He designed his garden and built it with the help of a local builder. He has many romantic evening meals in the gazebo at the bottom of the garden....

What is the source of Wallace's inspiration?
Wallace’s parents and grandparents and his rural upbringing were a huge influence on his life. Wallace inherited his love of poetry and nature from his mother Sarah Huey and his appreciation of the bounty of the Earth from his father Douglas Huey and grandfather Joseph Gaston - both farmers...
“Here is an extract from one of my mother's poems in her book of poetry - Inspired by Life. It’s a poem she wrote about my grandfather as he looked back on his life. It’s about his farm in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, where I played as a child, a farm which sustained his family and sent 3 of his 5 children through college.”
Wallace is powerfully inspired to help others - a result of his compassion engendered by his own time of trial, the 10 years he spent experiencing mental anguish. Throughout this entire period, Wallace was supported through it by his family, especially by both his parents.
His inspiration comes from within, delivered through inner guidance. If you would like to know more about Wallace's life experiences and learn what led to his passion for coaching, you can read his book Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off and read the articles he has written for Trans4mind here. We need to face up to the challenges of life but where can we turn for support? Fortunately there is a great resource available at all times - our inner guidance. Wallace's book provides many personal examples of how inner guidance has proven invaluable, and his training courses teach each of us how to recognize and use this essential gift.
In the following recording from local Irish radio, Wallace (accompanied by our business mentor Dayna Caceres) discusses how Trans4mind Training originated and was developed over the last few years...
Wallace has a five-fold mission:
- To provide the means for a vast untapped resource, the wisdom and compassion of personal development professionals to be offered to people facing life challenges.
- To offer personal development services which have love as their only source of inspiration.
- To express this freely offered love and wisdom in the form of innovative self-empowerment services, which stand as a landmark for personal development on the Internet.
- By these three means, to bring the personal into personal development on the Internet.
- Not to rest until, along with Peter Shepherd, he has brought personal development based on love, in every area of human endeavour to every region of the world, thus assisting the Trans4mind vision - to make the human heart visible in community world-wide by harnessing the full potential of the Internet.
My Biggest Transition Experience
As a young impressionable man I tended to believe anything a doctor in a white coat said. I went home in a state of shock. Then because I had never learned the skill of managing my own mind, I allowed myself to slip into a negative spiral with my thoughts going from one bleak scenario to another. "If I couldn't work again I would never have any money. If I never had any money I would never be able to get married and have my own home. If I couldn't get married and have my own home I would never have a family."
In a mad train of negativity I slipped into a black depression and was readmitted to the same mental hospital, this time for 3 months. Instead of having one mental illness I now had two. This was the start of a journey into the black cave that had become my mind and it took me 8 years to emerge as a functioning adult once more.
However I emerged a completely transformed human being. The suffering and distress could have easily ended my life in an act of self destruction, and indeed for two years these were my predominant thoughts, but instead I opted to bring into my home a whole range of personal development books and to put into action what they recommended.
I lived alone which allowed me to experiment with new ways of living, without impacting on other people. My heart had been opened by the education I received and the actions I took as a result of reading those books. It was then that I received an inner call to take what I had learned and help humanity.
My gifts to humanity that contained what I had discovered began with a book, "Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off!" It was a book about listening to and following inner guidance. It was through cultivating this skill that I knew what to do to heal myself. Interestingly what I wrote and how it was written were all a result of following that self same inner voice.
That same inner guidance, often intervening in my life at key moments with loud unmistakable authority, leading me to meet and marry my soul mate Carolyn, to move 100 miles to Dublin in the Republic of Ireland, and to begin working as a life coach.
Then in a seminal intervention, shortly after giving up a business start up project, a discarnate voice spoke to me when I was praying for a new direction. The discarnate voice said with loud authority “You can do what you like in the world of business but you will not make a single cent.” When I then asked in the prayer state what I was to do. The discarnate voice came back and said with unmistakable loud authority, “You are to awaken people spiritually!” I then asked in prayer how I was to pay off my debts doing that. The discarnate voice never spoke, but after that my own inner guidance got considerably more strong and clear, and the number of synchronicities and coincidences in my life accelerated greatly.
I was led to a spiritual healer and in one powerful session I was healed of the most debilitating effects of my schizophrenia (supposedly an incurable condition) and so could return to work with more energy than I had had most of my adult life.
My empowered inner guidance also led me to get in touch with Peter Shepherd and provide life coaching on the Internet, and in later years to spend 6 years (alongside my co-director Peter and a team of 18 staff) creating the Trans4mind Training workshops and establishing the company, Trans4mind Ltd.
I am 61 now and it has been a long journey with many hurdles to overcome, but my one over-riding thought that kept me going, was that I could provide a service that would prevent people, who were going through a transition, experiencing the horrors that I had experienced all through my 30's, in the cavern that was my mind at that time.
So to anyone reading who is experiencing their own time of transition, be it large or small, I salute you for reaching out to find how you can be empowered. My biggest transition experience was rather dramatic and you may feel it does not apply directly to you. There are lots of different kinds and intensities of transition; however the one thing that all have in common is that they upset the proverbial apple cart. What before seemed secure and predictable, now seems insecure and unpredictable. And it is this fundamental journey that our training and coaching empowers you to make, from apparent security through uncertainty toward a deeper sense of security, brought about by the embodiment of personal development skills and insights.
I know for sure that when you take up our thoroughly modern interactive video workshop training with its expert personal development trainers, and learn to implement the new skills and your own insights with the help of your chosen Trans4mind Coach, you will discover how to move through your own particular life transitions with ease. You will be learning, without the suffering, those lessons I learned in the depths of despair. You will be empowered to move through your current transition and future ones with confidence, have your heartfelt dreams come true and in so doing transform your life.
And your success will be my greatest joy.
