About me

I provide support in the area of relationship counselling and sex therapy.  I am qualified and vastly experienced in relationship counselling and I am one of the few specialists in Ireland in the area of sex therapy. Clients are in a safe, secure, experienced and confidential hands where I deal with sensitive issues discretely and respectfully.

I am accredited with the National Counselling Society, a member of The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists and a registered accredited member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

How does the Relationship Counselling Journey start?

Where clients are in an existing relationship, we usually start by seeing both you and your partner in the first session.  This is a safe, confidential environment to explore what's not working and what you would like to get from therapy.  Where clients are not currently in a relationship, we will meet by way of establishing how counselling can be of support.

How does the Sex Therapy Journey start?

Your first appointment will be an assessment to identify what the concern is.  No physical examination takes place and no intimate exercises ever take place during the sessions.  There will be a requirement to meet with clients individually for two history taking sessions following the initial appointment.  The duration of sex therapy sessions depends on the nature of the difficulty and the pace at which the individual or couple move forward.

Experience:

There's nothing typical about the profile of clients I see in relationship counselling or sex therapy. They range all age groups from teenagers to mature clients in retirement and come from just about  every 'walk of life'. My clients may be in established relationships or single, and are heterosexual, bisexual, transgender or they may be lesbian or gay.
