My decision to become a therapist was inspired by my own personal journey of my life experiences. My greatest reward as a psychotherapist is helping my clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope, as often the feeling of fear, isolation and loneliness can be overwhelming.
As a qualified psychotherapist I have worked with various bodies over the years in supporting both male and female clients, using an integrative approach which includes over five years of Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT) experience. My role enables me to help my clients gain insight and awareness and as a direct result helps them to develop the skills and confidence to create a more fulfilling and balanced life.
I have experience with individuals on a wide range of issues including:
What therapies do I use?
No one single approach is the right one for each individual, we are all unique. My approach to psychotherapy is Integrative which involves using a range of therapeutic techniques which is led by you. This enables us to work together to understand how things are for you and to focus on the areas in which you want to change in your life. I offer a safe, comfortable and confidential space for you to explore any issues that are affecting you in your life.
What happens in a therapy session?
In our initial session we will discuss together what the difficulties are which are bringing you into therapy. Together we will explore these in order to gain a better understanding of you. We will also discuss what it is you are hoping to achieve through making use of therapy.
During this initial session, I will go through a contract about times, fees, confidentiality and any questions you may have can be asked.
What is the cost per session?
The cost per therapy session is €55 for a 60 minute session, but I offer all clients a sliding scale depending on individual circumstances. I believe that therapy should be available for everyone who wishes to avail of it. The cost of treatment is agreed upon in your first therapy session.
Are you qualified?
Yes – I hold a Diploma & BSc (Hons) Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy. My qualifications are recognised by the Irish Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP). I abide by the code of ethics as outlined by the IACP. Over the years I have undergone further training/workshops which allow me to meet the varying needs of my clients.
