About The Next Step

Next Step Therapy is a highly ethical, professional, experienced and friendly therapy practice in the heart of Dublin offering counselling & psychotherapy, addiction assessment, referral & treatment as well as business services to other therapists.

I am accredited by both Irish and British Associations of Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP & BACP). I am also accredited by Addiction Counsellors of Ireland (formerly IAAAC) and the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) as an addiction professional. Finally, I am recognised by the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) as a registered clinical hypnotherapy practice and by the Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy Association (CHPA) as an accredited Hypno-Psychotherapist. 

I attach great importance to the humanity of my practice of psychotherapy. As well as my skills and clinical knowledge, I also bring compassion, kindness, curiosity and humour into my sessions.

I place much value on the first stages of therapy and believe that the act of reaching out and asking for help is a very courageous and healing act. I aim to make this process as smooth as possible by providing a friendly, caring and non-judgemental service


What Do I Offer

I have a variety of different therapies that you can use, tailored to your needs. All are tried, tested and evidence-based. I offer:


Anger Management - Individual & Group Sessions

For those who struggle with the appropriate expression of anger. We explore both active and passive forms of Anger; Anger Out and Anger In. Please see below or on our website for more information.


Mood Management

I have a series of evidence based CBT programmes for mood management problems. There are 2 versions: low intensity and high intensity.

Low Intensity Programme consists of between 8 and 12 CBT Mood Management modules and lasts between 6 and 8 weeks

The High Intensity Programme consists of all the Low Intensity Modules plus individual integrative psychotherapy, psychoeducational training and relapse prevention strategy management. This lasts between 10 and 16 sessions or longer, if necessary.

For more information, please see the Mood Management section on my website


Individual Counselling Sessions

This is what most people understand by therapy: two people in relationship and working towards change in a friendly, supportive and, above all, in a non-judgmental manner. Most of our sessions are short-term solution focussed although open-ended psychotherapy for deeper problems or core issues is also possible.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

I have a range of evidence based courses for people suffering from depression, anxiety, chronic worry or generalised anxiety, shyness or social anxiety, anger management, aggression control, assertiveness training, procrastination, low self-esteem, shame reduction, panic attacks, bipolar disorder mood management, etc


Group Psychotherapy

Also called Support Groups. A powerful way to get to know yourself with the help of others who understand what you are going through. Facilitated by an experienced counsellor. These groups usually meet weekly and are very useful if you feel lonely, dislocated or just lost. A group will start when 4 or more people make a commitment to attend at least 6 sessions.


Workshops

An opportunity to explore single persistent problem areas with a group. Examples include: Anger Management, Self-Esteem, Assertiveness Training. We have many others so call us for more information


Addictions

I am a qualified and highly experienced addictions consultant and have decades of experience working with all forms of substance abuse and dependency. I offer assessment and diagnosis; referral to detox or primary treatment; both individual and group relapse prevention; aftercare; family support; workplace substance abuse education; psychoeducational groups on demand etc


PTSD/Trauma

This is where the past is present. I use EMDR to treat this complex issue.

€95 - €105

Drug of Abuse Immunoassay Testing

I carry out Drugs of Abuse Testing at my office. This consists of an observed urine sample collection and testing. The observed sample, which meets Chain of Custody conditions, is then sent to a registered and accredited laboratory in Dublin for confirmation acceptable to employers and the court system. There is a 24hr turnabout on lab testing. This test, including all testing and laboratory, costs 105€ for a single urine test or 95€ if regular testing is required. Please see website  for more info and to book a session.

I also do instant urine tests acceptable to most employers or institutions but these are susceptible to legal challenge. As an accredited drug and alcohol professional, I issue a certificate verifying the authenticity of the test result. These tests are either observed or unobserved. An observed test has much greater credibility. The cost of this test is €65 including all paperwork and test equipment.

A free Substance Dependency Syndrome Diagnostic test is offered free of charge to those who want one. A referral for treatment is included in this free offer.
