Psychotherapy and Counselling Services
‘I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.’
People come to psychotherapy for all kinds of reasons. Some may feel that situations in their lives have become challenging and they need to develop new, healthier ways of coping. Others simply aim to strengthen their emotional well-being, so they can go on living full and happy lives.
A psychotherapy session is a safe, entirely confidential space for working through difficult thoughts and emotions. I believe that everyone has the strength within to deal with their challenges; my role is to guide and support while the client grows in confidence and begins creating the life they desire.
I work with both adults and children on a range of issues including childhood trauma, self-esteem, post-traumatic stress, the cross-cultural experience, relationship difficulties, stress and anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, self-harm and more.
At the root of many of these issues is unresolved childhood trauma. During childhood we are forming an understanding of the world and our own place in it. We form beliefs which may not be helpful or based in truth, and they become programmed into the subconscious. In later life, we make decisions based on this subconscious programming. In psychotherapy we explore these inner beliefs and challenge those that aren’t serving us well.
For some clients, therapy is focused on making positive changes within a specific time scale. Other clients may need to explore issues more deeply over a longer term.

How do psychotherapy/counselling sessions work?
At the first session, we talk through your issues and what you hope to achieve through therapy. Afterwards, you decide if you want further appointments; there is no obligation to proceed. Every session is entirely confidential.
Sessions last 60 minutes for individuals and 90 minutes for couples and are held at a regular time slot each week.
I offer both conventional face-to-face therapy, available at my Ennis and Cork locations, and online therapy. Online therapy, conducted by Skype, is a convenient, discrete alternative which involves no stressful travelling for appointments and more flexible appointment times. I currently work with clients all over the world.
