Degree in Nursing; Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
I work as a counsellor/psychotherapist actively listening to you to supporting you to determine those factors which are causing you unhappiness.
I am passionate about what I do, my life experience and training changed my life. My life is unrecognisable from five years ago. I am in a position to support you without judgment and with kindness. I provide a supportive, kind and caring space and help you in your journey. I do this by actively listening to you, giving you tools that you can choose to use in your life.
I am lucky to have published in SouthSide People my personal journey of Seasonal Adjustment Depression (SAD) and a letter to the editor of the Journal of Counselling and Psychotherapy on counselling and psychotherapy.
I grew up in County Antrim seven miles from Belfast. Stress and anxiety were unknown natural states of mind for me. I put so much pressure on what I expected myself to be. Counselling changed my life. Personal counselling, mindfulness, self-compassion and CBT are tools that I use in my life.
I have a Diploma in Combined, Social and Behavioural Sciences, (University of Ulster); Degree in Nursing (University of Dundee); Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, (Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Killinarden, Tallaght).
I work with clients who are feeling stressed due to personal or work-related relationships. If you are feeling overwhelmed, or who have feelings of not being good enough or low self-worth. I empower you to make choices that result in positive changes in your life, a step at a time, at your pace.
I am on the Regional Committee for Dublin of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
