About me

Hi my name is Cathy,  I specialise in offering a range of Therapies to pre-teens and adolescents who may be struggling with exam stress, school issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, sexuality, gender and the many other issues commonly faced by these age groups. I have gained substantial experience helping young people with their problems across the schools counselling service in Primary, Post Primary and Special Education.

I also work with Adults on a range of issues such as Anxiety, Depression and Stress within the Community, Voluntary Sector and Private Practice. This has given me great diversity in my client work and I am able to counsel within a wide range of settings and age grou

How counselling can help

My aim is to provide emotional support to people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives, by helping them to address, identify and work through their issues. Working together through the most important aspect of counselling that being the therapeutic relationship. I will offer you a warm, safe, confidential  space.  A space were you can talk through your issues and build positive coping strategies into your life,  while working towards future goals, for a happier healthier you.

What to expec

The first session will give us the opportunity to meet and introduce ourselves for the first time. A number of things will be covered such as confidentiality and timing's. The session will be offered for 1 hour and an assessment of your presenting concerns will be taken, I will be interested to hear your story and what your goals are for counselling.
