I do face to face counselling at Blanchardstown Therapy Centre with Health and Safety Protocols in place to protect my clients. I also counsel via Skype, Zoom. and phone.
I am an accredited member of the National Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists (NAPCP) and adhere to their code of ethics. I counsel individuals over 18 years and couples.
During my earlier career I was responsible for performance, development, coaching, recruitment and selection in a large Irish company. Previous to that I was involved in child and special needs education and worked in a university setting.
As a counsellor, I work in in an integrative way, using therapeutic approaches from Person Centred, CBT, REBT, Mindfulness, relationships and couple skills, to suit your individual needs. We will work together in a non-judgemental, safe, supportive environment, in order to explore the difficulties you are encountering in your life. I will not tell you what to do but work collaboratively with you at every stage. I will help you understand your thoughts, feelings, behaviour and relationships, discover new perspectives to your problems, identify your goals and how to achieve them. I will guide you in developing awareness and ability to understand yourself more fully so that you will finish counselling with a stronger overall structure to your life.
I attend supervision on a monthly basis to ensure that I deliver the highest standards of counselling to my clients.
