Kelly (Tilly) Loughnane
My name is Tilly. It is my passion and life work so far in helping others to achieve mental wellness, and further to alleviate self-suffering. I see counselling as a guide. So being on a journey together, where my clients bring their difficulties and I bring my professional knowledge/skills, unconditional positive regard and empathy. I believe people have the capability to bring their inner resources and expertise regarding themselves. Yet through building confidential trust in a therapeutic relationship/setting and trust in the counselling process, together we can achieve self-growth. I will bring the nourishing ingredients of training, experience, compassion, nurturing, empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard, you will bring your life
Having someone to listen to you and understand you on an emotional level with intense meaning, can be a very enlightening experience,
How I Work
My approach is humanistic, relational and integrative. I use my knowledge and training to assist in my approach to meet my client's individual needs
Therapy can guide client's, raise awareness and promote healthy well being. I offer a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment, to assist in nourishing my client's journey into self-growth. We cannot unchanged the past but together we can work on the 'here and now'.
