I believe you are the expert in your life and even though you may not know it, you have all the answers within you. Unfortunately sometimes life can make accessing these answers difficult. Trauma, mental health issues, addiction, work and family pressures can all impact our ability to connect to our inner wisdom and happiness. I have found through personal experience that talking to a trained professional in psychotherapy who is kind, caring, non judgmental and emotionally attuned can support the process of being able to listen to ourselves and work towards living a life that is free of suffering.
I was born in Ireland and qualified initially as a mechanical engineer. I became interested in psychotherapy through personal growth and engagement in my own journey. This led me to gaining a masters in youth and community work and a bachelors in psychotherapy. I moved to Canada in 2014.
I have worked in the areas of mental health, addiction and family services for over ten years. I have trained in several areas of humanistic and integrative psychotherapy including dialectic behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, narrative therapy, emotionally focused therapy, motivational interviewing, family systems therapy, couples therapy and gestalt therapy.
