I am a Dublin born counsellor/psychotherapist and consultative supervisor with a private practice in Canton, Cardiff. I offer confidential one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy to adults (16+). My core therapeutic training is from a humanistic and integrative standpoint but my work is also influenced by psychodynamic, gestalt and CBT approaches. I have extensive experience in the field as prior to my move to Cardiff I had a successful private practice in Dublin. In addition to my private practice, I work as a NHS counsellor. In 2018, I graduated from the University of South Wales with a Post Graduate Diploma in Consultative Supervision.
As a therapist and supervisor, I believe in the healing power of talking to understand the issues and difficulties we face as human beings. This can be used to identify positive steps to enable greater self-acceptance and confidence to work through the concerns that are causing anxiety and distress. To do this, my aim is to create a safe and supportive environment in which we can explore experiences, thoughts and relationships which may have led or contributed to your present feelings. By addressing your concerns and working collaboratively, we can harness the potential inside all of us to understand ourselves and have greater self-acceptance. I therefore see my work as a therapist as a collaboration in which I aim to support my clients in their struggle so that they can live life to its full and achieve the goals that are important to them.
I work with some of the UK's leading EAP (Employee Assistance Program) providers such as First Assist and Right Management.
I am a registered provider of psychotherapy with for healthcare companies including Aviva, BUPA, Pru Health and WPA.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) since 2012. I also have an extensive background of working with large corporate/global multinational businesses so I have an in depth understanding of the pressures of modern working life.
