About me

Welcome to my page. I’m Padraic, a Mid-Ulster based Counsellor registered with both BACP and NCS. I use a variety of methods and approaches, but everything that we do will be tailored around you. You are central as we take this journey to wellness together.

I work with children (aged 8+), young people and adults from all walks of life. I have my own private practice (Calmer Shores Counselling) and I am also very privileged to be employed working in Secondary Schools counselling young people aged 11-18 as well as working privately with Primary School children delivering my own tailored programme to promote wellness and resilience. We are all unique individuals, therefore your counselling experience will be unique to you. I believe irrespective of the approach we take; the most important thing is the therapeutic relationship which is key to successful therapy.

I work from offices in Cookstown and Dungannon and occasionally in Antrim. I also provide Online Counselling working with clients across the world.

When I was a teen it didn't feel there was much support with mental health. Maybe it was there but it wasn’t apparent. In this day and age, I don’t believe any person, young or old should have to wait weeks upon weeks waiting to speak to someone. If you are experiencing difficulties, making that first call or sending that first text can feel challenging, or even scary and overwhelming. Before making contact you will have lots of questions and fears, “am I doing the right thing”, “will I connect with this counsellor”, “am I ready”. All of these questions and fears are totally normal. Having the courage to open up is huge and you deserve to be heard. No one should have to go through difficult times on their own.

If you're able to make that first step by contacting me, from that first contact I will provide a caring, safe, friendly, professional, respectful and positive environment for you. I always say that we are on a journey and this can be an amazing one. If you’re ready to begin this journey, I'm here and ready to walk the path alongside you.

I am here NOT to talk at you, but to HEAR you. I am here NOT to judge, but to pass NO judgement. I am here NOT to abandon you, but to BE THERE for you.
