Serena brings years of experience in beauty & skincare gained around the globe & has spent over 38 years in the beauty industry, being lucky enough to travel extensively with work, using her skills & gaining lots of experience.  After returning to the UK to study for teaching qualifications she worked in colleges, salons & for a global company (yes, more travel!) educating beauty students & salon owners both in the U.K. & abroad. Serene Skincare is the accumulation of all this knowledge & passion.

Serena constantly strives to improve every aspect of the salon, to educate herself & the team so that they can continue to grow & spread her passion for excellence.


Fiona started her beauty career over 18 years ago working in a prestigious Belfast salon.  After gaining a vast amount of training & experience she was delighted to return to her home town of Killyleagh to work for Berenice Beauty Clinic.  In 2006 Fiona joined Serene Skincare as Senior Beauty Therapist & works closely with Serena to ensure that the team keep up to date with everything new & exciting in the beauty profession.  Fiona loves to ensure that all our clients get a great treatment & to see them returning, having been delighted with their Serene Skincare experience. After extensive postgraduate education, Fiona was one of the first therapists in Northern Ireland to be awarded Skin Expert status with The International Dermal Institute. Being the  highest accolade achievable, this demonstrates her determination to offer only the best experience  possible for Serene clients.


Emma is a strong member of the team with many years of experience in the beauty, skincare & particularly the Spa industry. She has a wide knowledge of products & spa treatments & enthusiastically continues to add to her skills with regular training. Emma works to a consistently high standard & gained her Skin Expert Status with The International Dermal Institute soon after Fiona to become a top performing skin therapist in Northern Ireland. Emma's skills are revealed in her amazing skin treatments & massage therapies where she excels. Emma's Indian head massage is sleep therapy without drugs!

Emma's easy, relaxed manner ensures you feel 'Serene' on every visit  

Helen looks after you at reception, welcoming you with her lovely smile & friendly manner. You'll often find her organising our record cards & generally keeping us on track to ensure you feel relaxed & enjoy your visit. She enjoys interacting with all our guests & helping them to feel at home, before being met by their Therapist. Helen's gentle manner and local knowledge are appreciated by so many of our clients who look forward to saying hello and often just pop in to wish her well.

Our Philosophy

Serene Skincare promise to every client they will leave feeling more relaxed, calm and de-stressed from their busy lives and to have gained a little knowledge whether their treatment lasts 10 minutes or 2 hours. We want all  our clients to embrace their own beauty and feel inspired to continue their beauty journey with us.
