About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the IACP (Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I use an Integrative approach to counselling. This enables me to tailor my approach to create a model that best suits each individual client. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment so that clients are free to explore any issue they choose and at a pace that is comfortable for them.

I work with adults and young people aged 12-18yrs, offering face to face, short or long term counselling, and work privately from home.

I offer an initial assessment at a reduced cost of £40 where we can discuss your issues and any questions or concerns you may have about whether counselling is for you. You are under no obligation to return.

If you decide to continue with counselling we will go at your pace and together we can identify the issues you want to address and goals you would like to achieve. I will contract with you on an agreed number of sessions which will ideally take place on a weekly basis. We will then review our work together and you can decide if you have gotten what you need or if you would like to continue.

Some of the areas I work with include: Workplace stress, Depression & low mood; Anxiety; Low Self Esteem; Grief & Bereavement; Relationship issues; Personal development; Anger Issues and Suicidal ideation.
