“I value creating a safe and inclusive space that is warm and welcoming for clients.”
I am a counselling psychologist and clinical supervisor and have completed the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from Trinity College Dublin.
I am committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards and am a member of a professional psychological body (The Psychological Society of Ireland). I have a keen interest in continuously developing myself professionally (e.g. by attending training programmes or workshops), and in obtaining supervision to improve my practice and so provide the highest level of support to clients.

I have a wide range of experience counselling adults, teenagers and children experiencing a variety of difficulties (e.g. anxiety, panic, depression, personal and relationship problems) across a range of settings, including private practice, community mental health, school and university settings, the HSE and voluntary organisations. At present, I run a successful private practice in Dublin City Centre. In addition, I have in-depth experience counselling those bereaved by suicide. I also provide clinical supervision to other professionals and have completed my Developing Confidence in Clinical Supervision Certificate with the PSI.
My clinical approach is an integrative one that draws upon a number of evidence based approaches including client centred therapy, emotion focused therapy
and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The treatment is then tailored to suit the specific and individual needs of each client. I have specialist interest in many areas of psychology including grief and bereavement; relating and relationships; trauma and body work as well as, the different kinds of problems that people can have with their emotions and how to help the person use their emotions more effectively to solve problems.
