About Amanda Fennelly Counselling and Psychotherapy
I am a professionally qualified counsellor psychotherapist
holding a BSc (Hons.) in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Having a commitment to continued professional
development, I have a Certificate in Gestalt Therapy and am currently
undertaking training in issues of sexual violence with the Dublin Rape Crisis
Centre. I am a fully accredited member of IACP and adhere to their professional
standards and code of ethics in my practice.
My training is humanistic and integrative incorporating
person centred, psychodynamic, CBT and Gestalt therapies. I adapt my approach to
that which is most appropriate and beneficial for the client. Central to my way
of working is to create a safe, confidential and compassionate space where
clients can begin a process of exploring aspects of their lives which are of
concern to them.
I have many years experience working with people in the area
of mental health and wellbeing, including over four years working as a
counsellor psychotherapist in Pieta House supporting people struggling with
suicidal thoughts and engaging in deliberate self-harm. I am experienced in
working with clients presenting with issues such as Depression, Stress and
Anxiety, Loss and Grief, Relationship Issues, Low Self Esteem, Spirituality, Suicide
and Deliberate Self Harm. I work empathically and collaboratively with adult
individuals on a one to one basis.
