About Clive Murphy

At 34 years of age, I thought life was as good as it could get. I was an Area Sales Manager for a Multi National Company, owned a restaurant and was in a great relationship.

While I had many bad relationships in the past, I had reached a point where life was great.

Within a three-week period, I suffered two major setbacks. I lost my job and my girlfriend left me for another man. The pain of devastation was so great I ended up in hospital with chest pains. The loss and feelings of depression lasted for years and I eventually decided to seek help. I began reading books, asking questions, attending seminars and doing courses. In 1987 I put up my sign and began my new career.

In 1989, even though I was well qualified and helping others, I was still struggling with rejection and failure. Relationships were still not working.

On seeking professional help, I found most people advised me on “what” to do and not “how” to do it. I also found many spoke in terms I did not understand – commonly called “psychobabble”.

I decided to look for my own answers.

In 1994, I had a defining moment. After taking a client through a new concept to help her overcome rejection, I suddenly realized I was totally dependent on others for how I felt. While I wanted their love and acceptance, I gave them total control. In the space of 5 minutes, my life changed dramatically, as did what I taught. 

Many of my clients asked me to document my concept. I kept it simple, easy to understand and, because it was in a step-by-step process, easy to implement.

This lead to three books with one being a best seller.

I received praise like:

"… So go for it and become the world leader in the practical application of developing self esteem as you deserve with the quality of this book.” … John Edwards


“… It not only talks about self-image like many other books, but gives you a step by step guide on how to develop a better self image. Something that has been needed in the area of self-development for a long time”. … Dave Bradley

To add to my knowledge, in my late 30’s my wife, Julie, and I purchased a fitness center and learnt about health and fitness.

In the past 27 years, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the best ways to help people achieve their best.

I am happily married to Julie (been together for 24 years) and have two step children and one child.

In teaching essential life skills, I get back to basics and common sense. I not only teach what you need to know to take control of your life, I also address the factors that stop you from achieving your desired result. In other words, if you know what you should be doing and you are not doing it, there is a reason “why”. Once this is addressed, you are free to achieve.

I own a counseling and seminar business (clivemurphy.com) as well as a business to help high achievers (PeakPerformanceAcademy.com.au). I have had success helping thousands of people to overcome such things as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, obsessions, relationship problems, family and parenting problems, eating disorders and many physical ailments.

I am an International speaker and author. I was a guest speaker at the Second International Rotary Peace Conference in 2000 in Australia. 

Importantly, I walk the talk. The information I share is derived from my own personal “hands on” experience in life and from working with clients in consultation.

While I have seven qualifications, I list my most important as the one I receive from the University of LIFE.
