Seeking help is courageous. I hope to support and guide you in your growth and development, to help identify your difficulties, strengths, needs and boundaries. Change is a process, and I may be able to assist you to realise your worth and value, and support you to make choices that will help you in whatever challenges you are facing, or difficulties you have experienced.

Does anxiety rule your life? Is the grief you are feeling extremely painful? Do you feel suicidal, or have you lost someone to suicide? Do you feel your life is just drifting? Do you need a safe and confidential space to talk just about you and what is going on in your life right now? Is your own self esteem and self worth at rock bottom? Would you like to understand yourself and some of your life experiences more? Are you a teenager struggling with peer pressure/bullying or self image? Are you experiencing any relationship difficulties either within a marriage, a family system or the workplace?

I work in my practice helping people who seek therapy for a range of emotional and stress-related issues including stress, anxiety, worry, depression, anger, panic attacks and grief. I believe that everyone deserves to live a full and meaningful life. I endeavour to create a compassionate, non-judgmental and transformative space for my clients and always practice with these values in mind. During times of struggle or stress, we can at times disconnect from what's important. The counsellor’s role is to get to know you, and for you to develop a greater understanding of yourself in a supportive environment, working at your own pace.

I offer a safe heart centred space to help my clients unpack at a gentle pace that suits them. No problem is too small to bring to counselling. Talking things through with a stranger can help find and bring resources and solutions into sight and is therefore "the gift of therapy". I work with clients experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem, and relationship problems. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly to match your requirements. I have a wide range of training and approaches such as choice therapy, Positive thinking, meditation, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, and shamanism.

One of best and accurate descriptions comes from Susie Orbach: “People come to therapy when avenues for understanding themselves or moving forward stall. They come because love has gone wrong, because they are frozen in unsatisfactory work or intimate relationships, because they have lost touch with themselves, because they are searching for authenticity, because they don’t know how to let go, because their life is falling in on them, because they have suffered events so bruising they don’t know how to assimilate them…The work of therapy is to open up on the levels of: feelings, words, and ideas "

There are times when our capacity to feel better, recover or move on with things can feel too difficult to do on our own. It can help to talk to someone outside of your family, friends and familiar relationships to begin to understand how you are feeling. Therapy is a process that can help you explore issues relating to challenging or traumatic life experiences. I can support you in re-discovering a sense of how you can relate to yourself and others in a more resourceful and empowering way. Giving yourself permission to accept support for where you are at is often the hardest thing to do and the most courageous.

Clients come to me when they are going through a particularly stressful time in their lives. They might be experiencing a bereavement, trauma, relationship difficulties, problems with fertility, pregnancy or early parenthood, low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression. Mostly they are hoping to find a way to process and cope with what they are experiencing. It is also not uncommon for them to have had therapy before but feel like it hadn't fully resolved their difficulties and they are now looking for an approach that will help them to develop a deeper understanding and make significant changes.

Specialising in the treatment of anxiety-related behaviour, I work in partnership with children and their parents to provide effective, family-focused solutions for complex emotional, behavioural & social issues. My role as a behavioural psychologist lies in the application of evidence-based, compassion-focused practices that celebrate the human experience and all that it brings. My experiences as a child, adult and now mother of two with a visual impairment has afforded me deep insights into the value of positive role models and the need for appropriate nutriment of self-esteem in young people.

You find life is a struggle. However, you have a feeling it does not need to be this way. You have tried various strategies and coping mechanisms, you have given your all and no matter how hard you try, you find yourself stuck again and again! Your mind is anxious about the future as you wonder whether you will be able to sustain such discomfort with life. Your mind also tends to dart back into the past, wondering regretfully about things you did or failed to do. A smooth and easy relationship with the here and now alludes you. You want to try something new. It is time to try 'change' through psychotherapy.

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.
