What else do we offer?

Having personal experience of repeated trauma from 4 - 36 years of age, and the subsequent coping strategies it can foster, I committed over 12 years to the charity and voluntary sector working primarily in homelessness, addiction and mental health with both young people and adults. I branched out on my own in 2015 to open Hydro-ease, Northern Ireland’s original floatation centre. Giving up the wage, spending the families life savings and putting myself £60,000 of debt to chase the dream .... good news is its paying off!

 

My unique approach and consideration to change work has gained me the reputation of a well respected and highly sought after therapist.  I offer many pathways to recovery, whether it’s a tough business decision or the impact of post traumatic stress disorder/injury (PTSD/PTSI), I can help and support you to create and sculpt the life you want through changing neural pathways and unlinking the triggers of the past.

 

In 2016 I developed RAFT (Recovery and Floatation Therapy) a bespoke session, using cutting edge techniques and approaches to develop improved life strategies. For the first 60 minutes we will work 1-1, followed by 60 minutes in the floatation cabin which enables consolidation of the learnings and allows your body to completely relax. Hydro-ease offers an approach that is unrivalled and unique and currently is not replicated anywhere else.
