I strive to create a therapeutic relationship with my clients which allows them to explore their world in a nurturing and safe environment. My practice is grounded in a humanistic, person-centred approach but I also incorporate elements of other therapeutic models such as Psychosynthesis, Psychodynamic theory, Attachment theory, Existential theories, Art Therapy, Family Therapy, CBT into my work.
I hold a Masters in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Turning Point Institute, affiliated to University College Cork. I have worked in the Education sector for over twelve years, and worked with clients from a variety of settings.
I have experience working with clients with a variety of presenting issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment issues, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, addiction, self esteem issues, self harming, sexual abuse among others. I have a particular interest in working with adults who have experienced trauma in their childhood, or have attachment issues that they would like to explore in adulthood.
“I am very passionate about and love working with people in a therapeutic way. I believe that people have the power and potential to explore their own values and beliefs in a safe and nurturing environment. As an Integrative Psychotherapist I will work alongside you throughout this process, to empower you to develop your self-awareness. I work in a collaborative manner which allows me to use the therapeutic approach which is best suited to your needs and wants.”
My aim is to provide the client with a supportive, nurturing environment in which to explore their experiences which have brought them to this point in their lives. I will focus on coping mechanisms, as well as processing deep and painful emotions through a variety of models and approaches.
