About me

I offer a person centred counselling service in Derry city centre, focusing on helping you to feel as comfortable as possible, with therapy that is focused on your needs and working in a way that suits you.

I have a wealth of experience working with adults, children and couples experiencing difficult and confusing thoughts, feelings and behaviours, helping them to make healthy choices and feel better in themselves and in life.

I have particular experience in working with low self esteem, depression and anxiety, grief, bullying, historical abuse, childhood family issues, suicidal thoughts and self harm, employment assistance programmes / workplace issues.

What sessions are like.

When you contact me first, we will briefly talk about what is happening for you and I will also take some contact details from you. We will arrange an appointment if I have a suitable time available. I offer weekly appointments and a limited numbers of fortnightly appointments, usually at the same time each week.

In the first session, we will talk about the counselling process, confidentiality, my role and your role in this process. We will talk in more detail about what you are going through, and develop a set of goals.

Each session after this will involve activities that centre around your difficulties and moving towards your goals. We will review progress approximately every 4-6 sessions, to assess how close we are to our goals or if they have been met and look at the ending process.
