Covid 19

These are very uncertain and challenging times for all of us. In light of HSE guidelines I have made the decision to discontinue face-to-face sessions for the coming weeks. This is to ensure the safety of clients, colleagues, friends, family and myself. I am offering counselling and psychotherapy by telephone and online. Many people are acutely worried and stressed so I am now offering short sessions of 25 minutes duration to provide a supportive space to talk about your concerns and also to offer some practical guidelines for managing stress.

About Me

“I believe that our mental health is of paramount importance. If we are emotionally or psychologically distressed it has a negative impact on our well-being in a variety of ways. If we are physically unwell we seek help from professionals so be kind to yourself and seek professional help for your mental health and well-being.”

I hold an Honours Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy and I am accredited with both IAHIP and IACP. My core training is person-centered and psychodynamic. I also have training in other approaches from the more practical such as CBT, mindfulness and stress management to the more philosophical such as existential therapy.

What to Expect

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.”
(Einstein, Ideas and Opinions)

At first you may feel a bit anxious about counselling and this is a natural response to the unknown. However, this feeling should lesson as you build a relationship with your therapist and you begin to talk about your difficulties. The more you experience a sense of respect, trust and safety; the more you may feel you can talk about your life experiences.
