About

My name is Niamh, and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. CBT provides a structure which helps you to explore your emotions, thoughts, behaviours and move towards a more manageable tomorrow armed with insight and self-awareness. I offer a space for individuals to address the difficulties they are encountering and teach practical tools, techniques, and skills to help people overcome the issues they are experiencing. CBT is very effective when working with specific therapy goals like managing anxiety or moving out of a period of depression. It is recommended for many issues including PTSD, OCD, eating disorders and addictions.
I offer a non-judgemental practice and have experience with the LGBTQ+ community. I have delivered mental health workshops in schools and universities which has given me valuable insight into the issues facing teenagers and young adults in the present day. Within advocacy, I have extensive experience working with people with eating disorders.
I believe that change is possible. Therapy can help us to move towards a brighter future with insight and awareness. I provide a warm and genuine environment giving people a safe space where they are heard, valued, and understood. I believe that we all hold the strength within us to be able to live more fulfilled, purposeful, and empowered lives.
