  1. Yes, the students won the battle with regard to getting Jeanette Rigney “struck-off” as a member of IAHIP, and vindicating their claims of abuse. However it is not over yet until “the fat lady sings”. Jeanette Rigney is now going after Colin Coyle, the journalist who blew her cover in 2010…… she intends to sue him for “defamation”.

    I hope she has a lot of money for solicitor’s fees, because making a claim for defamation damages in Ireland can be a complex and costly matter. This course of action could very easily backfire on her, because she has totally underestimated the complexity of the case against her, and if ill advised to continue, this could have an even greater negative impact on her. As far as I am aware, one can not sue for defamation if the remarks made about you are largely true…….. and many people are willing to stand up in court with Colin Coyle and state that what was written about Jeanette Rigney of Tabor was indeed the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth…… and will swear to that. So the battle continues.


  2. Finally, vindication for all of us who suffered at the hands of this woman. To the One who went the distance (You know who You are) Thank You xxx


  3. To “foster research” on what? It would serve them well to do research on how many members have a background of shamanism, Tony Quinn/Educo cult training, Tibetan Buddhism/Lamaism and all other new age belief systems. They are in a no win situation and tend to take the ‘normal’ route to gain accreditation.

    In to-days therapy centres there is no possible way to gauge whether a therapist or supervisor has a cultic background. I can only conclude that it is impossible to protect potential clients.
