About me

) I am an accredited counsellor with IACP.

I have been working as a counsellor for the past ten years .

I work from a variety of counselling approaches that suit clients needs . My main approach is the person-centred approach to help clients find solutions to their own problems whilst integrating other approaches when needed with my clients .

I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of organisations like SoSad (suicide);Cuan Mhuire (alcohol addiction);Turas Counselling (drug rehab) Dundalk Counselling agency (general counselling).

I have found in my work experience as a counsellor /psychotherapist that counselling does work if the client is willing to engage in its process .

I am passionate about helping clients help themselves in order to live more fulfilled, harmonious

lives to achieve physical, mental and emotional well- being .

If you are new to counselling do not fear come along and give it a go !
