About me

I enjoy working with clients of all age groups, from post-primary age upwards. I work with a variety of presenting issues, from stress, anxiety, and depression to relationship problems, self-esteem issues and suicidal ideation. There are no issues too small, or too complex, each client holds the ability within themselves to better their situation with my support, undivided attention and simple, but an extremely effective non-judgemental listening ear.

I work using a variety of approaches, marrying together the likes of Person Centred, CBT and psycho-dynamic in order to cater to each individual client with what best suits their particular needs. One size does not necessarily fit all, each client is unique and therefore requires a unique approach bespoke to assist them on their journey.

I pride myself on my ability to form a unique bond and therapeutic relationship with each client. I try to understand my client's situation by immersing myself in their shoes to fully empathise with them at a deeper level. The client is the expert, they are the experiencer. My role is to listen, truly understand, and help build the foundations for growth.
