Frank Healy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach. He is one of about 80 people who has been classified as having Hyperthymesia by the University of California. Frank participated in their research studies because he remembers every day of his life since he was six years old. He is now in his 50’s.
His memory of each day includes the day of the week, the weather in his locale, news events and personal experiences. Recalling so much in his life had its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages include recall of every happy experience he had with friends, family, school and his wife. The corollary of that is that he remembers all the negative things. Bad days at work and school, slights from people, romantic breakups etc.
Before he began his own journey, he would recall bad memories with the same emotional intensity as if he was experiencing it now. He had learned to let go of the feelings. He now counsels and coaches people to heal from the ill effects of their own traumatic and unpleasant memories. This can help people be happier and move on to a successful present and future.
Frank lives with his wife in Dennisville, New Jersey. He is in private practice at Associates for Life Enhancement in Northfield, New Jersey. Frank enjoys going to the beach, reading, writing, playing quizzo with friends (It's a trivia game) and playing ball with his grandsons.
