I draw upon a range of therapies, including cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, and mindfulness.
I believe that everyone deserves to live a full and meaningful life of their choosing. I strive 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 easily disconnect from what's important to us. I believe you are the expert on yourself and will assist you in getting back in touch with your authentic self. I specialise in the following areas: Stress Management, Life Transition & Change, Confidence, Self-Compassion, Chronic Pain, and Anxiety Management.

My professional mission is to support children and young people to work through distress or challenge at home, at school or socially. As a behavioural scientist, applying evidence-based, compassion-focused practices is central to my work. My experiences as a visually impaired child, adult and mother has afforded me unique insights into the value of positive role models, the nurturing of self-esteem and the promotion of psychological resilience skills for children and adolescents.

Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed and unable to focus? Are you feeling worried or having low energy days too often? Please phone me today for support. I specialize in working with clients struggling with Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Unresolved Childhood Issues and Trauma. When I first meet you, I will ask what has brought you to therapy. With this information we can talk about how we will work on this together. The first session with any new client is to assess if we can work together and if you feel comfortable with continuing the therapeutic process. We also talk about limits of confidentially.

I am a cognitive behavioural therapist/health coach with over 15 years of experience in health and well-being. I've worked in rehabilitation for more than ten years, helping people become the best version of themselves. I achieve this by understanding my own challenges and victories. I engage in an open, trusting environment with a connection that encourages others to grow. My passion is helping others challenge their own limiting self-beliefs, thus bringing them to a space of self- acceptance and positive change.

I am a Person-Centred Therapist and I use ACT , CBT and Choice Theory to help clients work through an issue or to help them shine a new light on an area of their life that is not currently how they would like it to be.
When something in your life is not how you'd like it to be, or when you're looking for help and support for something that you're going through; perhaps a life event, a particular concern or maybe problems with relationships, at home, in school or at work. Maybe you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, frustration, fear, sadness or other emotions. Stress can be a part of this. Counselling can help you to better understand what might be going on for you, and to find ways to effectively manage feelings, thoughts or worries. My experience is that clients come to counselling because they want something in their life to be different.

In a warm and safe environment, free from judgement, you will be able to explore what is going on for you and you will experience respect, acceptance , curiosity, gentle challenge, and an appreciation for who you are.
Counselling can help you find the words for experiences you were previously unable to speak about. You can learn to recognize and express your feelings. Counselling can teach you how to set healthy boundaries, how to be assertive and how to stand up for yourself. You can also learn how to allow yourself to be vulnerable, in a way that is safe for you. You might discover that it is ok to be human, to make mistakes and to change your mind. Counselling can help you tune into your gut and to learn how to trust yourself.

Please note that I am on maternity leave from December 2022 where I have not set my return-to-work date in mid/late 2023. I guide and support people on a journey of self discovery and self acceptance so that they can develop a better relationship with themselves. I offer a safe container for people to be seen and heard as they begin to reclaim and re–emerge as their true selves. A space to be you. Each person's story and journey is unique where I don’t believe in a “one size fits all”. Therefore I use different therapeutic approaches collaboratively with you to explore what best suits your needs.

I believe that the most crucial factors for healing the deep wounds that we carry are the nature of the therapeutic relationships and the development of self-awareness and acceptance .
My interest in psychotherapy, spirituality and meditation began after the end of my marriage several years ago, which like many other types of losses, triggered a lot of suffering. ​Life transition, family and friends losses, the breakup of long-term relationships, stress, anxiety and depression are all part of human suffering. However, we have an innate capability, which we can strengthen, that allows us to navigate and, more importantly, learn from our most difficult life experiences.

My approach to treatment is very much guided by the person who walks through the door. I do not believe there is a one-size-fits-all form of therapy and the direction the treatment will take will be informed by the relationship between therapist and client. I use an integrative approach that involves humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive therapy; whatever I feel best suits the individual client’s needs. While in session, I try to create a safe and non-judgemental space where my clients can explore what is going on for them in the moment. We then work together to make the changes they wish to see in their lives.

People seek counselling/therapy for all sorts of reasons: stress or anxiety in their home or work life; difficulties in their relationships; feeling low, sad or depressed; a bereavement or major loss; a trauma experienced; panic attacks; a sense of paralysis in making life decisions; overwhelmed by angry feelings. Or maybe just a sense that something is wrong but it's hard to put a finger on exactly what. They want something to change, and need some help to explore and understand their issues better.

If you are looking for someone that will be understanding, supportive but most of all help you achieve your therapeutic goals. Contact me now and begin your process.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Dalkey or for a Dalkey ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
