Chances are that if you are on this website, there is something in your life that is causing you concern or confusion. Perhaps you need support in getting clarity, change, and relief in your life. As a Person-Centred / CBT therapist, I have helped many people to explore, understand, and/or overcome a wide variety of issues: for example, abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, grief and loss, identity, LGB, loneliness, poor confidence, poor self-worth, relationships, sadness, sexuality, self-harm, shame, and uncertainty.
I am privileged to have this job as it is a very rewarding and humbling role. To hear people share their life stories can be profoundly enriching and worthwhile for both client and therapist.
I am genuinely present with people as they explore the issues that have brought them to therapy. I provide a comfortable space whereby I use compassion, empathy, acceptance, confidentiality, kindness, warmth, and my knowledge and experience of counselling psychology.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I draw on theories of person-centred/Rogerian, existentialism, CBT, motivational interviewing, and focussing techniques.
With each client, comes a new person and a new range of experiences, life events, goals, and expectations. My main aim is to help each client to gain insight and to discover a way forward.
As a counsellor and psychotherapist, I am experienced in helping people with a wide variety of issues, including, but not limited to: anxiety, bereavement, depression, existentialism, general counselling, grief and loss, identity, LGB, men’s issues, personal growth, relationships, sexuality, self-harm, and shame.
I also have a range of experience in other fields of care, e.g., Applied Behaviour Analysis with people with ASD and maladaptive behaviours, Life Skills and Emotional and Behavioural Care with young people in residential care, and Emotional Support in a Voluntary setting as a former Director of Samaritans, Kilkenny & Carlow branch.
