The years of experience working with loss, crisis and trauma are the foundations of my work. I believe in the human capacity to find meaning through the distress which their life may bring. I have witnessed how individuals face these painful times, and in counselling, have found a way through.
I understand the experience adults and their families may face within the healthcare and legal system, having worked in Medical and Social Work settings, in Ireland and the U.K. Through this I have knowledge of how families are changed through anxiety, addictions, abuse, adoption, domestic violence, ill health, pregnancy difficulties, crime and violence.
I am fully accredited with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Registers in Ireland, namely IACP, IAHIP and ICP.
My Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling is Humanistic and Integrative, with a MSC in Existential Psychotherapy with Tivoli Intitute Dublin and Middlesex University, London.
We live in ever-changing and demanding times, so my additional ongoing training is integral in how best I meet your needs.
My additional training includes: Irish Hospice Foundation, Womens Aid, Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, Men Overcoming, Violence, Tusla Child Protection, Psychosexual Therapy, Brief Solution Therapy, Biosynthesis Somatic Trauma and depth-psychology oriented Psychotherapy, Barnardos Adoption Agency.
