Sinéad is an integrative counsellor, working with a range of issues including anxiety, stress, emotional distress, work issues, confidence & self-esteem. She specialises in relationship issues and sexual issues working with both individuals and couples, as well as working with clients who experience ROCD (relationship obsessive compulsive disorder).
Using a person-centred approach at the core of her work, she encourages clients to be autonomous. She also incorporates many therapeutic techniques and approaches, including psychodynamic and psychosexual. She believes each therapeutic relationship is unique and the therapeutic approach to the work should reflect that.
Sinéad enjoys helping clients to find their direction and answers to what can sometimes feel like a build-up of life’s questions. Living an authentic life is something she has spent a long time understanding and helping clients to strive for. Sinéad offers a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space for clients to explore and develop a greater understanding of their issues and self-awareness, helping them to make a change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in integrative therapeutic counselling, working with a person-centred approach at the core of my work, but also using CBT and psychodynamically.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), holing their Codes of Ethics and following their professional guidelines to ensure safe practice.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
