Experienced. Certified. Supportive.

Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

In 2016, I established Woodbourne House Hypnotherapy Practice, which is a private hypnotherapy practice located in the countryside, outside of Ballynahinch, Co. Down. 

I attained my hypnotherapy qualifications through The Clifton Practice Bristol (Belfast Satellite College), recognised as the Centre of Excellence for hypnotherapy training.  I hold the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Diploma as well as the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma, considered as the gold standard in hypnotherapy training.


Through my initial role working firstly in the health sector, I studied ‘Therapeutic Crisis Intervention’ accredited by the Cornell University, New York. This training was primarily directed for use during my role in residential social care.  I supported young people to develop their communication skills and new coping strategies. This first experience of applying a talking therapy was inspirational.  I could see a direct positive impact from its application.  Use of the talking therapy improved outcomes for the young adult as well as improved standards for delivering high quality residential social care.

In my senior leadership role within education, specifically special education, I liaise on a daily basis with a range of multi-disciplinary professionals. These include medical, psychological, behavioural, allied health and Educational staff with the purpose to improve physical and mental well-being for pupils in my care. I have achieved the Professional Qualification in Headship (PQH), which is the national qualification required for head teachers in the UK.  This professional experience and knowledge has shaped the passion that I have in supporting others to make positive changes to their lives. 

Over the course of the last 15 years I have held leadership positions in both the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department of Education in Northern Ireland. 

Through these professional roles, I have supported children and young adults, as well as families and staff in dealing with challenges in their lives.
