I am a naturally intuitive and energetic practitioner who brings enthusiasm and warmth to my practice. With an 8 year history of front-line clinical practice as a registered nurse, I have experienced and treated people with a wide history of physical and psychological traumas and have seen the devastating effects of trauma on the mind, body and soul.

I also have considerable experience working in the Education sector for 6 years, working within a socio-economically deprived area. During this time, I have witnessed how trauma and deprivation has had an impact to my students’ (and the wider community’s) health and wellbeing. These experiences helped fuel my desire to embark on effective healing for myself and others.

During this time, I started my own spiritual and mental healing journey, where I came across Havening. From my own experiences of Havening, it ignited an unwavering passion for this transformative modality of healing, leaving me feeling empowered and energised to incorporate this into my own professional practice. I have invested myself in being able to help others reach their own potential, teaching them the tools of Havening for their own liberation and self-development.

I enjoy working in collaboration with clients on their own journey, and with a gentle and approachable manner, I nurture a safe space for clients to work towards finding and living their most authentic versions of themselves.

My clients have reported transformative changes to their own lives, with improvements to their relationship with their family, friends and selves. It has been described as life-changing as clients continue to explore their needs, change their mindset and continue to benefit from havening.

Harbouring traumatic events

I cannot recommend Roisin enough. Roisin has helped me through a number of traumatic events in my life through the Havening technique. I feel like I have processed a lot of issues that I was harbouring and have now well and truly let them go and can move on with my life. Talking to Roisin was so therapeutic and yet so informal. She made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole experience. Thank you so much Roisin for everything.

it was such a privilege to work with Roisin, who is so open and engaging and intuitive. The Havening technique was profound for me, and really impacted some areas of trauma that have made ripples right down to my daily life. Roisin creates such an environment of safety and acceptance as well as lightheartedness in the face of heavy things, which made the sessions not only powerful but also really enjoyable.

A child's experience

My 10 year old son had a havening session and when he first went, I was a bit apprehensive because as a mother, you want to fix all of your children's problems and I couldn't be in the room with him. If I had have been there, I felt like he would have held back a lot, but getting feedback from Roisin reassured me that he was fine, he opened up which I was happy about. I would rather he opened up to somebody rather than nobody.
His mental health is a big issue at the minute and after the session, he felt comfortable enough to come and speak to me about what he talked about in the session.
This allowed me to understand what was going through his head, what he was feeling and I was able to talk to him about the worries he had. He seems genuinely happier after the session and no longer has the worries he had going into the session. He is a very anxious child anyway but I do feel that he is progressing and will continue to progress with further havening.

Sceptical at first

For me, I was sceptical about Havening at the start. I went in with an open mind and as time went on during the session, I could see a difference in the thoughts I had about when I was younger. The feelings I had towards these thoughts no longer exist. I don't hold anger or grudges anymore and I was able to understand the situation from an adults point of view rather than a childs. Up until this session, I had only been able to see it from a child's point of view. I genuinely feel like this session has been very good for me and my mental health and I would definitely go back again and talk about other issues I have.
