My work has been with those who have experienced significant loss in their lives, as well as those with issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety , and problems in their relationships.
What brings you to counselling could be any number of reasons: You may have experienced the loss of a loved one; perhaps your life is in such chaos you can no longer see the forest for the trees; or, you may simply wish to look at yourself and your patterns of behaviour in a clearer light. What I offer is a space for you to come to terms with your life, free of judgement, so that you can live it to the fullest.

I work with adults with a range of issues, including anxiety , depression, bereavement and loss, difficulties around identity, relationships, sexuality, and a sense of meaning and place in the world.
There are many reasons why people seek time and space to talk and reflect. You might want to talk about thoughts and feelings that are difficult to discuss with others, or consider what has happened to bring you to this point in your life. This can be a space for exploration and discovery, a protected hour in which you will be listened to. My focus is on listening openly, without judgment, to whatever you bring. I will listen to your experiences and your point of view and together we can look at different perspectives which can help you to live more freely.

I am currently full and unable to take on new clients. You may be seeking counselling for a specific issue such as: stress, anxiety , depression, low self-esteem or feeling sad and these are all good reasons for seeking support. Alternatively your reason might be more difficult to put into words, not everyone has an identifiable reason for seeking support. Whatever your reason for counselling, I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space where your experiences, thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored.

I have a wide range of experience of working with various client groups from low self-esteem, addiction, sexual orientation, offending behaviour, women's issues, autism, depression/ anxiety and bereavement etc.
I have worked as a counsellor for many years and am both passionate and motivated as I was in the beginning. I am particularly passionate about working people who have low self-esteem as I believe this covers so many areas/issues in life. As a woman in my 50’s with various life experience this allows me to empathise and have compasion for others. Having come from a multi-cultural family with Irish roots this gives me a greater understanding of cultural diversity and a sense of belonging. I am a spiritual person who has an interest in mindfulness and Yoga.

We'll explore what's troubling you and who you are in relation to it- whether it's relationship difficulties, abuse, depression, anxiety , disordered eating, addiction, grief, loss or stress.
Struggles can confront us at various points in our lives. Sometimes there are obvious sources to our pain or maybe we just begin to notice things have been 'off' for a while and it's hard to make sense of. We can be left feeling confused, lonely and disconnected from ourselves. It's hard to understand what's going on, maybe things start to feel out of control or tough to manage and consequently our lives feel unfulfilled in some way. Naturally, we want to get a grasp of what's happened and take back some control of our lives so we can move in the direction we want for ourselves.

The most important element of counselling is the connection you have with your counsellor. I know how important it is for you to feel heard, validated, and aligned with the person you are choosing to trust. I started training as a therapist eight years ago, at aged twenty, as I wanted to help people in a more in depth way. I have since then enjoyed helping a wide range of people from all walks of life get to a better psychological and emotional pIace, with most of my experience focussing on working with children & young adults (12-30).

We live in a culture that promotes the idea of strong, powerful individuals who live picture perfect lives. There is little room for showing our vulnerability, or our need for connection. There is a cultural expectation that when things are difficult for us we should just 'get over it' and not make a fuss, this might manifest in you with thoughts of "what's wrong with me", "why is this so hard" and "I should be able to manage by myself" and so on! You may be feeling fragmented, ​disconnected, numb, overwhelmed, fearful, unable to cope, you might feel like giving up.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
