Ruth Pringle

I run a private practice, as a holistic therapist and workshop facilitator. I work from Helen’s Bay, Co. Down and in Dublin too. Online 121 sessions, healing and teaching are also available.
I’m trained and experienced in various disciplines; including natural healing methods; meditation for adults and children, crystals, distance healing, regression therapy, ancestral healing, inner child healing, trauma
and phobia release and clinical hypnotherapy. 

In a nutshell, I help people feel better, release blocks, help them to see a ‘bigger picture’ perspective, and help them heal. I help clients to find out the ROOT CAUSE of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical concerns, and we bring healing, insight and understanding to that.
