I am fully accredited and experienced counselling psychotherapist offering both short (6-12 sessions), and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals. As a member of the IACP I adhere strictly to the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics, and pride myself on practicing to the highest ethical standards. With an honest, warm and open approach, I provide a confidential, supportive and safe space where people can discuss and explore their personal issues, choices, behaviours, thoughts, beliefs and feelings without fear of judgement, reproach or discrimination.
People enter into counselling or psychotherapy for many different reasons, each person’s issues are unique, and so my focus is always on the individual. As an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist my therapeutic approach draws from both the humanistic and psychodynamic schools of thought in dealing with issues of change or acceptance. I use a number of approaches/styles of psychotherapy to help clients explore and resolve their problems; and to achieve their goals and aspirations. These include person-centered, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) principles. I also draw on my own personal experience with mental health and the Irish mental health system which clients find beneficial. On a more personal note, I feel privileged working with people who are experiencing difficulties and helping them come through the other side.
