In most people's lives there comes a time when they need support to work out long-term issues. Or perhaps they have met with stresses in their relationships or at work. Often we struggle on, relying on family or friends. Sometimes we turn to strategies that worked for us before, but no longer seem to help us with our pain. We may feel depressed, anxious, isolated and unable to see a way out for ourselves. Perhaps we begin to experience the unnerving feeling of a panic attack. Or we may find ourselves overusing alcohol, struggling with food, spending or other addictions.

It can feel a bit daunting or even scary starting or resuming therapy and that's why I focus on creating a space that is warm and safe, to help you feel more comfortable figuring out what's troubling you and unpacking your feelings, thoughts and experiences. I love supporting people on their journey to better understand themselves and the root of their present difficulties, and helping them discover who they are beyond who they have learned to be through their life experiences and environment.

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.

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 "

I work with both adults and adolescents and provide a type of listening that is singular to each person (not a one answer fits all model). By attending therapy you release yourself of burdens and concerns and ongoing symptoms and find new ways of looking at life. The work I facilitate provides an insight and outlook that is focused towards helping each person find more understanding of themselves and what they want for themselves. My experience includes people with different psychiatric diagnosis, people experiencing grief, loss, addiction, ruminating and obsessive thoughts, pre and post natal depression and eating disorders.

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.
