Malachy McGuone BA (Hons), MA, Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP Accred
I am a fully qualified, accredited and registered counsellor. I have a great deal of experience of working with people who are dealing with difficulties and major changes in their lives and the issues which arise; such as stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, grief, loneliness, loss of confidence, low self esteem, self harm, suicidal or hopeless feelings, illness, abuse, unmanageable anger, disability and addictions.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to its Ethical Framework, and I offer a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can explore your concerns and feelings. It may be that you currently lack the opportunity to truly express yourself. It may be that you would rather not speak with those closest to you about what is bothering you. Being truly listened to can be extremely healing and my aim is to provide you with a space that can enable you to work through your difficulties and concerns at a pace that is comfortable for you. In an environment such as this, problems can be worked through, thus freeing us from what is holding us back and thereby enabling us to get the most from our lives.
As well as my private practice, I work as a counsellor with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), where I counsel those who are affected by sight loss. I have a wealth of experience of counselling adults, young adults and students (tertiary level education and above) and people with a wide range of disabilities.
