ABOUT ME & MY APPROACH
I have been working as a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist since 1999. My training in many disciplines of therapy enables me to adapt the therapy style to the client. I have a collaborative approach and I draw on models such as mindfulness, CBT, and ACT, together with creative and somatic exploration, to access feelings or resources. I often describe therapy as ‘facilitating people to get out of their own way’. As well as maintaining a private practice I also facilitate mindfulness, and parenting training, with the ETB.
Since qualifying as a counsellor and psychotherapist in 1999 my experience has been rich and varied. This experience includes working as clinical director in a residential psychotherapy centre, maintaining a private practice, designing and delivering many personal development group programmes. During 3 years living in New Zealand I tutored on the psychotherapy degree training, where I designed and delivered the creative therapies module as well as facilitating humanistic and self development groups. I have also been cited in health articles for national papers, and local radio in Ireland, also in a newspaper in New Zealand. I worked for over 4 years as a counsellor in primary care for the HSE.
