Hi, I’m Ivan. Chances are that if you are on this website, there is something in your life that is causing you concern or confusion. Perhaps you need support in getting clarity, change, and relief in your life. As a therapist, I have helped many people to explore, understand, and overcome a wide variety of issues: for example, abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, grief and loss, identity, LGBT, loneliness, poor confidence, poor self-worth, relationships, sadness, sexuality, self-harm, shame, and uncertainty. ​I provide therapy online, by telephone and in person in Kilkenny and Carlow (Learn more, see kennedycounselling.com )
I provide a comfortable and safe space to explore that which may be troubling or confusing you, to gain insight and support, and to discover a way forward. We'd proceed at a pace and through terrain that suits you, the client. Counselling is a safe place for clients to be vulnerable yet safe, to explore yet be secure, to be open and accepted, not judged.
​​​I firmly believe that the main thing in successful therapy is a strong bond between a client who is motivated to change and a therapist who is willing to learn. I believe that with each client comes a learning experience whereby I aim to understand what life is for them, no matter what life has done to them.
