Working with me

Thank you for visiting my website. I’m Irene Irving Therapies in Ayrshire offering a high quality  NLP and coaching service.  I’m based in Ayrshire and work from my office in Ayr, Online or, if required,  in your own home.

I know what it’s like to have lack of confidence, low self belief and anxiety dictate how you live your life and stop you doing the things you really want to do in life.  I also know that you can change that and it’s not as difficult as you think.  I’ve helped hundreds of people turn things round and take control of their lives again.

My great passion has always been self development and self improvement, and over the years I’ve strived to find tips to improve confidence and help with anxiety.

This passion led me to study Hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and CBC (Cognitive Behavioural Coaching).  I use my personal experiences and the skills I’ve learned to help people take back control of Anxiety.  I am one of a very number of Anxiety UK Approved Therapists in Ayrshire.  I believe Anxiety affects us all in different ways and many of the issues people come to see me about are rooted in anxiety, e.g. Stress, Smoking Cessation and Weightloss. (further information below).

Having personal experience of cancer I also specialise in helping people deal with the emotional effects and side effects of cancer treatment.

I now strive to help people make the most of their lives by managingr anxiety, finding coping mechanisms for workplace stress, stop smoking, deal with the emotional effects of cancer treatment improve their self esteem and confidence, finally stop dieting and lose the weight, etc. If you want to find out more information please get in touch.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Specialist Area

Anxiety and Panic Attacks

It is a great passion of mine to help people manage anxiety and panic attacks, helping you live the life you want to live and getting back in control.  In addition I am an approved Anxiety UK Therapist. I also see clients who are suffering from agoraphobia, in their own homes across Ayrshire, to help them gain control and start enjoying life.

Smoking Cessation

I have trained with Cathy Simmons, top London Hypnotherapist, in helping people stop smoking.  I use  The Simmons Method™, a science based approached which has successfully helped thousands of people become free from smoking all over the UK . Normally one smoking cessation is all that is needed to get rid of smoking for ever.

Weight Management

At last the message is getting out there that DIETS DON’T WORK.  They just don’t!  The only way to lose weight and keep it off is to look at WHY you overeat and makes permanent changes to your lifestyle. These changes include changes to what you eat, how much you move and crucially your mindset as without the mental focus change won’t be permanent.  Hypnosis can make these changes much easier if you are committed to making those changes.


Finding out you have cancer is devastating.  It impacts on every area of your life and coping with the emotional effects of this massive change in your life, as well as the side effects of treatment, can be overwhelming. Cancer affects everyone’s life differently but having personal experience, I believe hypnotherapy can help you get through the other side  of treatment and live a positive life after cancer


Too much stress can affect every area of your life.  A worrying trend in the UK is the number of people experiencing the negative effects of stress at work.  Employers are under greater pressure to get things done quicker, with less resources and the knock on effect of that is that the employee gets more stress.  Add home, family and money problems to the mix and life can become unbearable.   This can have a negative effect on health, relationships, and sleep patterns etc.  I offer one to one or group sessions on how to manage stress.  Making small, consistent changes can put you back in control.
