About Dee Woolridge


Dee Woolridge is the Former Texas Externship Location Director of the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy and founder of The Heart Centered Institute, LLC where teaching is focused on new thought, spirituality, personal growth, transformation, and positive change. 


A natural intuitive and people person, she has spent over 28 years in public service to her country and community. As a Navy public affairs officer (active and reserve), she assisted countless service members, communities, families, and civic organizations on outreach projects, such as Habitat for Humanity, and The Boys and Girls Club of America. She also worked on the joint communication integration team for Afghanistan and Iraq. 


Her practice as a hypnotherapist, spiritual counselor, life coach, and energy healer originated over 24 years ago with the premature birth of her daughter who was later diagnosed with autism. She sought out holistic health treatments to aid in the healing process of her child and her family. She studied essential oils, meditation, energy healing, crystal properties, hypnotherapy, and other modalities that now have become a way of life. She believes that self-care is caring for the whole self – mind, body, and spirit..


The discoveries she shared have helped many people through the years and the experiences were found to be even more valuable when she was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago. Now a post cancer thriver, she is a huge proponent of food as medicine and hypnosis to help uncover and heal the root causes of disease and chronic illness. She shares her story of conventional, and integrative/holistic treatments to heal mind body and spirit when she speaks around the country.


 Dee believes that she is divinely directed and guided to do this transformational type of work. “I believe that I am chosen to be one of earth’s teachers and guides – a beacon of light to others just as my teachers have been to me.”  She is a perpetual student of the mind, body, spirit healing concept and uses what she’s learned to help others.
