If you have experienced trauma, or have had difficulties in your life you would like to to work through, I can support you to heal and feel better in your daily life. Using Integrative and Somatic Experiencing TM approaches, I can help you to connect to life and living, to others and the world around you, some of the things we lose connection to when we have experienced trauma. Symptoms such as anxiety, depression, physical health issues, people pleasing behaviours, and feeling disconnected are some of the issues that are recognised and worked through from this approach.

I specialise in helping my clients to move past obstacles in their lives, the thoughts, feelings or behaviours that are holding them back from being the most authentic version of themselves that they know they were meant to be. Travelling through life we pick up and absorb so much that does not belong to us, but we let it define us. Others perceptions of us become our own, we internalise unhelpful feelings and messages about ourselves that never belonged to us in the first place, but we all do it. If you hear it, feel it or see it often enough, it gets in. It robs us of our ability to view ourselves as we truly are.

Are you feeling anxious, confused, stressed, depressed, lost, not able to cope with what is happening to you or has your world been turned upside down? Perhaps you have concerns about family or intimate relationships; care responsibilities; new life situations; bereavement/loss; college; work issues; or low levels of confidence and self-esteem. Life feels overwhelming and you’re not sure about the way forward. Or perhaps you just have a vague sense that something isn’t right? That your problems aren’t ‘big enough’ for counselling.

In therapy, I feel it is important for us to be able to say what we may feel unable to say to someone in the outside world. The therapy room offers you a place to be listened to without judgement. When we are given the space to talk about and explore our feelings clarity emerges. We all have a story to tell, and in this busy high tech world, feelings of loneliness and not being listened to are on the increase. To talk to someone who is not a friend or family member can be easier and more useful. Clients often tell me that they do not want to burden their loved ones with their problems.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are accredited members of the main professional associations, mainly the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) and the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP). Most Psychologists are accredited members of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement in Ireland, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in Ireland. Psychologists have earned a doctoral degree in psychology and many are accredited members of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI). Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a doctoral degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the IACP or ICP, they must complete a minimum of an NFQ Level 7 programme with 100 hours of clinical experience and a minimum of 450 hours of post-training clinical experience under clinical supervision.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in Ireland could cost between €50 – €90 when seeing a counsellor and €75 - €120 or more when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The National Counselling Service (NCS) is a government-funded service that provides short to medium term counselling and psychotherapy for free to individuals who have experienced trauma or abuse. The service can be accessed by GP referral or self-referral.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your eircode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the IACP, the ICP, or PSI are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others or when a child is in danger, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
