I am Deirdre Redmond, Counsellor & Psychotherapist with The Brook, Navan. To let you know a little about myself I work with clients (over 16), both individuals and couples, presenting with a wide range of issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Self Esteem and Relationship Difficulties. I have particular experience in working with:
My role as a Therapist affords me the privilege of working with remarkable people who seek out and move towards positive and lasting change. I am grateful to be part of a process that allows this change to occur, and healing to begin. With this in mind you may have questions, some of which I hope to have included here:
What model of Therapy do you use?
I integrate a range of therapeutic models, meaning I tailor aspects of each approach to suit my client's needs. That being said, I work often with CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) while primarily taking a person-centred approach, which involves active listening, deep understanding and unconditional acceptance. By drawing various skills from a variety of approaches, I ensure my client is supported throughout the therapy process as they evolve and work towards personal goals.
What are your qualifications?
Having acquired a Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy I went on to gain a First Class Honours BSc Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. In addition, I have since completed my Professional Certificate in CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy). These qualifications were awarded by PCI College in Dublin and Middlesex University London respectively.
I work in accordance to the IACP Code of Ethics and am supervised regularly by an IACP Accredited Supervisor. I am also committed to continued professional development within the Psychotherapy profession.
What happens during our first session?
This is a chance for us to sit and talk about what issues are causing you difficulty, and whether we both feel we are a good 'fit' to work on these difficulties together. Having done this, we will then discuss a contract on how we plan to work together. This includes such areas as frequency of sessions, fees and cancellation policy. This contract will really sum up what we expect from each other while working together.
What is the cost per session?
My fee per one hour session is €55, however I offer a reduced rate for those on lower income. Payment by cash or debit card is made at each session.
