I am an accredited memeber of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy, the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the European Association for Psychotherapy.
My approach is humanistic and integrative incorporating pschodynamic, person-centred, gestalt and bodywork practices.
I believe that psychotherapy offers individuals an opportunity within a safe and contained space to initiate a process towards wellbeing. In time this can lead to the person moving through and beyond the psychological, emotional, and physical impacts that impinge on their day to day living
