Clients whom I have worked with are mostly seeking a safe and trusting space where they can be listened to at a deep level and their personal history better understood and integrated through a trauma lens. Often something happened that made it unsafe for them to be who they really are which resulted in life long self limiting beliefs. They are seeking change and are willing to commit to personal work that begins to help to reduce these long held self limiting internal belief systems.

Hi there. The decision to take time to engage in therapy is huge. Talking to a stranger & not knowing what to expect from them. Not every therapist is going to be a good fit for you. This is your service & you are paying for it. I always say our 1st appointment is about you taking charge, coming in & meeting me & deciding if this is going to be a good fit. If it is that's great, if its not and you feel comfortable to say this I will be delighted to recommend a colleague. I will fully support you in this. I take each person as they come and we work together at their pace. Everyone needs and deserves support.

I am an accredited therapist (APCP) who works with adults on an individual basis. I work from an Integrative approach where I believe there isn't one therapeutic approach when working with a client. I feel it is important to take into account you as an individual and also your circumstances. Therefore it may be more beneficial to use different approaches to help you explore and cope with your issues or difficulties. I believe each person has the capacity for growth and self actualization in their own lives.  I have spent several years working with Carlow and South Leinster Rape Crisis Centre.

Sometimes life can just feel out of kilter and we don't know why, or the weight of every day life is heavy. When we feel like this it can be helpful to have someone to talk to who is not already involved and invested in your life. I work across a spectrum of mental health concerns, but have a particular interest in trauma, grief/loss, maternal mental health (in particular crisis pregnancy and miscarriage), addiction, depression, anxiety, low-self esteem and perfectionism.

Hazel believes therapy should be a collaborative process where the therapist provides a safe, non judgemental environment. This facilitates healing by giving the client the space to process difficulties and build awareness of patterns and behaviours that may be unhelpful or causing distress. Hazel believes awareness creates conscious choices which lead to a more fulfilled life.

Most important is that we build a collaborative working relationship where you feel safe to explore what is happening for you right now. Are you experiencing stress, depression or low mood? Do you have relationship difficulties, lack self confidence or feel stuck? Would you like to make changes, understand yourself and your problems better and foster fulfilling and happy relationships?

We may endure many struggles in life and as humans, we are resilient and creative, however, we can never run away from ourselves. As many of our core issues perpetuate, they will not cease to show up until we face ourselves in the midst of our truth. Our relationships with others are also of crucial importance, being the reason why many people come to therapy in the first place.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
