I am a qualified psychotherapist practising in the South Dublin area. I am a fully accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). In addition to my psychological qualifications I have an honours degree and professional qualification in Law and a Masters in Education and Counselling from Trinity College Dublin. Over the years I have worked extensively in the areas of employment law, recruitment, career coaching and psychotherapy.
I have always had a fascination with helping others to live their optimal lives. I strongly believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the importance of imparting crucial skills to people during difficult times in their lives in order to spark their sense of autonomy and empowerment.
I specialise in and am passionate about a vast array of areas including but not limited to anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, obsessional thinking patterns, intrusive thoughts, grief, trauma, couples issues, relationship break-up process, work-related stress, work-life balance, work-assertive issues and bullying in the workplace.
I work from an integrative model and strive at all times to tailor my therapeutic approach to the very specific needs of the client. I bring an optimistic, non-judgemental approach to therapy and use several different modalities including humanistic, person-centred, psychodynamic, existential and CBT. In addition, I am highly experienced in the solution-focussed model most suited to the EAP referral system. My uniquely diverse background, experience and qualifications equip me with a specialised set of skills which can really assist my clients to calibrate the balance in their lives and overcome the hurdles that are standing in the way of them reaching their true potential.
