Counselling & Psychotherapy is considered by the Government and NPHET as an essential service under Social Care. Face-to-face sessions can continue to be offered throughout any level of the Government's 'Living with Covid Plan', provided protocols and social distancing is maintained.
Emotional, psychological distress can come upon us for a number of reasons, a traumatic life event, bereavement, relationship breakdown, financial problems, bullying to name a few. Talking with a professional counsellor in a non-judgemental, safe and confidential environment can help you explore your emotional distress, seek support, unblock your inner resolve and confidence to find solutions. Counselling and psychotherapy offers hope through the chaos, and support from an uninvolved person.

Sometimes someone can be unsure if psychotherapy is right for them, or are unsure of the process of counselling/psychotherapy sessions. The first session is a therapy assessment consultation, which provides me with a chance to answer any questions you may have, for me to hear what your expectations of therapy are, and for you to decide if you would like to proceed in therapy with me. At this meeting, there are forms to complete which include specifically devised Therapy Assessment forms, completing the consultation/assessment should take about 1 hour and the fee is €60.00. Future therapy sessions are €60.00 going forward.

One of my main therapeutic approach incorporates Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helping people to change behaviour. Not everyone seeking therapy is looking for behavioural change, and just want someone to listen to them, maybe support in making some tough decisions, and feel supported in their struggles in life. I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your needs, to help you blossom and achieve the most you can from therapy.
