About Blue Sky Counselling and Psychotherapy


Each person is engaged in a unique journey through life, in search of his or her own meaning and purpose.  Life consists of numerous challenges some of which leave people feeling distressed and unable to cope.

At Blue Sky Counselling and Psychotherapy, you can expect a respectful and confidential response to whatever issues are concerning you. Attending counselling and psychotherapy can help to make sense of experiences, feelings, thoughts, or behaviours that are unique to you as an individual.

Through the process of therapy you gain a better understanding of yourself.

The relationship with your therapist offers a facilitative and confidential environment, where you can explore your internal struggles.  This process can enable you to discover inner resources and build the strength to make meaningful choices and live a more satisfying life.


Some Presenting Problems

My areas of work include: relationship difficulties, stress & anxiety, bullying, self-esteem, depression, suicidal ideation, paranoia, sexuality, sexual trauma, loss & bereavement, serious illness and many others.

What to Expect.

Blue Sky appreciates that taking the first step and picking up the phone to call the service can be very difficult. It is my goal to ensure that I make this experience a positive one for you. When you call Blue Sky, I will take your details and schedule an initial assessment for a date and time that best suits your availability.

Your initial assessment usually lasts between 30-45 minutes. This is not a counselling session but rather an opportunity to explore if counselling is the correct option for you at this time in your life. To ask any questions you may have on the process and explore some of the reasons you wish to commence counselling. If after this first meeting you decide not to go ahead with counselling this is not a problem, there is no commitment to attend counselling at this stage in the process.

If you make the decision to continue, a time schedule will then be arranged to satisfy your needs.

"Since I started going my life has changed for the better"
5 50Reviewed 17 Aug 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Counselling
I was going through many different aspects that were getting the better of me. I had relationship issues, I had difficulty with my family and didn't know how to deal with stress or people who were being aggressive. With Austin's help I was able to discover that from all the dark areas of my past that I benefitted from them. Austin also helped me deal with all the negative things and how to turn it to a good thought. Since I started going my life has changed for the better and I am glad I made the call as Austin pushed me so I could better myself.

My experience was great Austin didn't just sit there and nod his head t everything. He engaged with me and talked with me and helped me realise how much better off I was now for all the bad experiences I had. He really pushes you so that you get the best out of your time with him.

"I would recommend him to anyone and that is what I do."

Treatment Received: Anger Management,Anxiety - Alternative Treatment
Fantastic results. Helped me to get back on my feet. I really don't know what I would've done without Austin as my anxiety and anger made me feel so low. Very effective and helpful treatment. I would recommend him to anyone and that is what I do.

Very cosy ,welcoming and friendly room. There is a very warm atmosphere there . I think that's what's really important in a treatment room. We must feel comfortable and working alongside Austin made it even more comfortable. So easy to talk to.

From very quick initial contact up until my last session with Austin I couldn't fault the service received. Having been around the block so to speak with therapists in Kildare on whatclinic I finally found the best there is out there. A genuine sincere person who gives 110%, whatever your issue may be I would highly recommend contacting Austin for a consultation"

"A unique way of offering counselling"
5 50Reviewed 04 Aug 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Anger Management,Counselling
Austins practice and his approach is amazing, he has a unique way of offering you a "safety net" when you are in need. I met Austin when I was in a low place and he worked with me at my pace but knew when to push me to help myself. I can only highly recommend Austin. He has the most kindest, empathetic and caring approach.

This was a very difficult time of my life and I was very glad to meet Austin. He was warm, an excellent listener and I got the sense he really cared about my situation and endeavored to help me through a difficult time of my life. I found his clinic through this site and trusted the reviews listed here. I can now say that I am glad I went.

"I feel free to be the person I longed to be"
5 50Reviewed 06 Jun 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Counselling
The treatment I received with Austin was life changing for me. For years I continuously struggled with the idea of going to counselling. A good friend recommended Austin and I am so glad she did. He is so easy to talk to and it felt so natural to openly discuss my problems.

Seeing Austin is without a doubt one of the best things I've ever done for myself. He has really helped me overcome long-suffered anxieties to become a more confident, less afraid person. The knock-on effects in my marriage and work have been remarkable as I feel free to be the person I longed to be for so long. Austin's pragmatic, calming, humane approach makes has created an atmosphere where I can openly discuss my concerns. He continues to help me become more and more comfortable and secure in my own skin. It has been (an continues to be) an amazing and rewarding process."

"Really made me feel at ease"
4.7 50Reviewed 04 Apr 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Depression
Anxiety-Depression

The counselling sessions with Austin have really turned my life around. I had previously had counselling but did not feel that I benefited from it as I did not feel comfortable within the sessions. I felt I did not learn anything which would help me with problem areas in my life. The difference with Austin is that he really made me feel at ease and not only listened but taught me useful techniques to apply in every day situations. Six months ago, I was very depressed but I can honestly say that this is no longer the case. I am very grateful to Austin for his help! Thank You.
