Counselling and Psychotherapy

DSC01649 L

I am an accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a member of the Irish Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP), having completed a three year degree at the Institute of Integration Counselling & Psychotherapy (IICP).  I work with adults, children and teenagers.  I work from a humanistic and existential perspective and integrate therapies to help my clients gain useful insights to on going situations/issues in their lives that are causing them pain and distress.  I am also an informed Internal Family Systems therapist (IFS).  

In July 2020 I completed a four year degree in Art Psychotherapy.  I use art (where appropriate) in my counselling sessions.  This helps to enhance the emotional well being of the client especially if they are having difficulty in expressing themselves verbally. The use of art can also help reduce stress and support a person who is feeling depressed.  It can help the client to look at past trauma and help them slowly and gently express their feelings through art. No experience of art is needed.  Just a willingness to try it, even if this is drawing a line on a page.

The main issues that I deal with:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Anger Management
  • Panic Attacks
  • Bereavement, grief, and loss
  • Depression
  • Self-esteem
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Chronic illness
  • Loss of self
  • Sexuality
  • Teenager self-esteem
  • Bullying
  • Confidence building

What is counselling & psychotherapy?

Counselling & Psychotherapy aims to help you live in a manner that respects your values, needs, and self-determination.  It provides you with a non-judgmental space to explore all aspects of your life that may be causing you upset, inner conflict or emotional turmoil.  It encourages you to self-reflect, take control of your life and become self-empowered which in turn helps you to make positive changes in your life.  This work is done in a confidential, sensitive and gentle manner and in total collaboration with you, the client.    The number of sessions required will depend on the individual person and the issue involved.  Counselling sessions will take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on the needs of the client.
