I can listen and offer you support based on your needs and in line with your goals and values. If you are feeling stuck in work or relationships, have parenting concerns, are lonely, anxious or stressed, I can help you. Together we can come to understand how you have got to where you are and what we can do to help move you forward. This will differ for everyone and will be based upon a thorough assessment of the presenting difficulty. Often feeling heard and understanding a problem is the first step to improvement. We can then build a tailored intervention that will meet your needs and we will review this regularly as we progress.

People have contacted me when struggling with emotional problems such as: • Feeling stressed or anxious • Coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, separation, divorce or the loss of a job • Lacking confidence, self-esteem or having feelings of not reaching full potential • Difficulties in making or maintaining good relationships • Repeatedly becoming involved in destructive or unsatisfactory relationships • Feeling depressed, sad or empty

Feeling heard and understood by a caring and competent therapist can help us learn to listen and understand ourselves better at times of crisis and transition. Therapy can help us access more inner clarity, creativity and compassion to face what comes our way. I am an accredited counselor and psychotherapy based in Galway for over 20 years. I offer both short-term counselling and open-ended psychotherapy to adults concerned about their mental health or simply wanting to find a firmer footing in their lives

I’ve always had a natural curiosity about people and an empathy for others which is most likely the reason why I chose to work in the area of Counselling and Psychotherapy. There is something very special about witnessing someone grow and develop their understanding of themselves. The therapeutic relationship formed with clients is one I hold with high regard and is both a delicate and powerful piece of our work together. My hope in our sessions is to facilitate a safe space for clients to heal and integrate all parts of themselves.

I have 30 years experience working with a wide range of clients, coming to see me with many different issues, including anxiety, loss, and stress. In addition hundreds of professionals in the area of psychotherapy, counselling and coaching have attended workshops which I have led. My orientation is humanistic. What this means is that my work with you is non-judgemental and non-prescriptive. Our work together aims to help you to gain greater self-awareness, and with this comes release from internal conflict, less anxiety, a greater sense of freedom, and greater ability to make choices that suit you.

Psychotherapy facilitates people who wish to go on a self-exploratory journey to increase self-awareness. It also is a safe, non-judgmental space for people to process grief and loss, boost self-esteem, relationship issues, sexuality/gender concerns and to safely heal from trauma. My philosophy as a therapist is to treat each person with uniqueness and unconditional positive regard. I believe that the client is the expert in their own life and my job is to act as the guide or a facilitator of this journey. To help the client find their real self and to empower individuals to be true to their unique authentic person they are.

I aspire to provide an inclusive, non-judgemental safe space for my clients to work through their issues. The therapy that I offer is based on the belief that people who come for therapy are experts on their own lives(even if they don't feel like they are!) who have lots of potentially good ideas about how to deal with their problems. One of my roles is to help you make the best of your own experience and understanding. If you would like further information on my practice I invite you to view my website.
