I am a fully accredited, integrative psychotherapist with a Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and have recently completed a Masters in Psychotherapy specialising in working with trauma. As a fully accredited psychotherapist, I abide by a strict code of ethics outlined by the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psycohtherapy (IAHIP) and the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
I work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, grief, self-esteem, addiction, identity, relationships, psychosexual issues, stress, personal growth and development and coping with illness. I provide short-term counseling to those who need support to get through a particular event or time in their lives and longer term psychotherapy to those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships with others.
I adopt a Person-Centred approach to counselling and psychotherapy and provide an empathic, caring and confidential environment to enable individuals to speak about the situations, difficulties and experiences that cause them pain and distress. As an integrative psychotherapist my experience and training includes working with a range of approaches including Rogerian, Psychodynamic, CBT, Gestalt and Psychosynthesis. This enables me to work in a way that best suits the needs of each individual person that I meet.
I have a particular interest in working with the effects of trauma and have completed an MSc. Integrative Psychotherapy with Dublin City University (DCU) specialising in Trauma.
I am moved when connected to people, I am deeply touched in the process of sharing and I recognise the courage it takes to be in relationship with others. I draw upon my own personal experience and journey in combination with my experience and training to help me provide guidance and support to individuals as they explore the obstacles that prevent them from moving forward with their lives.
