Cliodhna Mc Phillips. MA in Counselling , Registered. MBACP
Is anxiety stopping you leading a full and happy life? This can be anything in your life, work, relationships, family, health, social, separation, pregnancy, exams, an old anxiety from childhood perhaps that you carried into adulthood, what ever is it I can help with that. If you find that it consumes a lot of your day, then it may be time to take a look at it together, which makes it less scary, and we can do that in a safe way. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons, clients seek therapy, usually caused by Bereavement and loss, Relationship / Marriage breakdown, fertility issues, along with many others. I have a lot of experience working with abuse in all forms, workplace stress and bullying, along with many more all listed below.
What you can expect in our sessions is a warm welcome, a safe nurturing space to explore whatever you wish, without being judged or "feeling like a burden" ( an expression my clients use). Sessions are strictly confidential, weekly or fortnightly, and can be anything from 6-12 sessions. Blankets for those cold days and added comfort are also included.
I work with a diverse range of clients and always learn something from each and every one of my clients. I feel very privileged to be part of my clients journey and the stories shared with me. I really enjoy my work with clients and I am very grateful for this. I try to practice being grateful and kind every day but some days are easier than others. I welcome any informal chats, feel free to call for an initial discussion.
Outside of therapy, I am a Mum of 3, and with this brings lots of life experience also.
I look forward to hearing from you with any questions or information you require.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
