Who I work with

At Inspired to Change I work with people who are experiencing an emotional or physical issue which is holding them back or who are struggling to cope with life’s challenges and adapting to change. Often they have tried other approaches to move forward but ultimately they still feel unhappy or stuck. People just like you. 

Regardless of what brings people to see us they all have one thing in common:

  • They are motivated to get better, cope better or be better
  • They are ready to get their lives on track
  • They are inspired to change

And that is what I am passionate about and skilled at helping people to do!

In addition to the many different issues that the solution focused approach is effective at helping, my personal passion is helping people with chronic pain, phobias, parenting highly sensitive children, neurodiversity, trauma and PTSD.


    Hypnotherapy with Ciara was everything I needed. Ciara is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She made me feel very comfortable, relaxed and positive after each session and helped me through some troubling times. I cannot thank Ciara enough.

    I’ve never had any kind of therapy before but this was such a great first experience. I had no knowledge or experience of hypnotherapy, and which hypnotherapist to go to. I was very, very fortunate to choose Ciara. It was immediately clear that she is very knowledgeable and she approaches even the most sensitive issues with thoughtfulness and kindness.Right from the very outset she was able to settle me down and explain to me very clearly what the sessions were all about and what they would achieve.I have no hesitation in saying that the improvements I have seen in myself have come about as a direct result of my sessions with her, and I would recommend her to anyone.

    With a genuine love of neuroscience, positive psychology and all things brain related, working as a solution focused hypnotherapist allows me to help you understand and overcome PTSD, trauma and the anxiety that impacts our lives.

    Having worked alongside special force personnel suffering from PTSD to young children and teens with anxiety, I am well placed to help. 

    Seeing your “ah-ha” moments as it all begins to make sense and you begin to find your footing, gaining confidence and once again enjoying experiences and life, is a journey I get to witness every day.

    My interest in working with children and teens, often includes neurodiversity challenges. As parents of these children and young adults, I understand the stress and anxiety that goes hand in hand with seeing your child suffer and I can help both you and your child regain control of your lives.

    Showing people how an overwhelming and out of control life can become a positive and exciting future is my passion.
