Our Practitioners at the Child Development Centre

Meet the Team

The Mulhall Integration Programme has been developed over the past 25 years, first by David Mulhall and then by Alexander Mulhall.

We have treated more than 3000 clients and tailor-make each programme to the individual. Everyone we see has their own issues relating to different retained reflexes and is seen personally to ensure continuity of treatment.


Alexander Mulhall
B.Sc (Hons)
Alexander is the lead therapist and CEO at The Child Development Centre. London born, he was educated at King's College Wimbledon and Harrow School and later graduated from Leeds. He was trained by specifically by David, for 3 years in the unique MIP method and is now is a specialist and recognised leader in the field of retained primitive reflexes. Since taking over the centre 5 years ago, he has sought to integrate a multi disciplinary approach to the programmes offered. He is a trained Psychotherapist and has a comprehensive understanding of the body and the implications of its physical nature. As a child, David treated him for Dyslexic traits and as a young adult, he experienced many sporting injuries. Alexander believes that understanding and coping with these incidents, have enabled him to bring insights to the therapies offered in the centre which no text book could replicate. He has the same passion and commitment, much as his late father, and has contributed new approaches to the Mulhall Integration Programme, which have enhanced and progressed the successes that the centre is now experiencing. He now also oversees the delegation of all modalities required by each individual seen at the centre.

About DMP


David Mulhall
B.Sc (Hons)
Following a successful career in Reuters, David Mulhall B.Sc. decided on a complete change to pursue an interest in a field that had always fascinated him. He set up the Clinic 1995 specialising in treatment in the then unknown field of developmental delay. For the next 20 years David steadily built a reputation as a pioneer in this poorly understood area of developmental health. In 2009 he started using the term Retained Reflex Syndrome in order to draw attention to the many different ways reflexes can inhibit personal development. This term is now widely used and accepted as having great significance in many developmental delay conditions. In 2010 he began to to experience problems with speech which was eventually diagnosed in 2012 as Pseudobulbar Palsy, a slow form of MND. In 2015 David stepped away from the centre after training Alexander one 2 one for three years. Sadly David passed away in 2020.
