Shirley is a Registered Nurse (Mental Health) and has a BSc in Nursing Studies. She worked in a large psychiatric hospital for many years. Encouraged by the improved quality of life complementary therapy could bring in the hospice sector, she decided to train as a holistic therapist. Clinical hypnotherapy was a natural progression from this, and she gained her Pg Cert and Practitioner Diploma from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. She is presently Practice support and a Hypnotherapist at the Harvest Clinic, and a course Supervisor for LCCH. Shirley also gives time to work as a volunteer at a Stress Relief Centre.
