I am an IAHIP accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist working in private practice in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. I am also a student of Diamond Approach Teaching Ireland.
I am employed as a Senior Health Promotion Officer with the HSE since 2001 working in and with a broad range of diverse settings and population groups. I have a deep understanding of the complex determinants that underpin our health. I am an advanced facilitator, with a vast experience of working with groups. I started my work with the HSE in 1984 as a general nurse and specialized in cardiac rehabilitation.
I work from a humanistic and integrative approach, working with individuals to provide both short and long-term psychotherapy support as required. My work covers a broad a range of emotional and psychological issues, such as anxiety, stress, anger, depression, loss and bereavement, parenting, relationships and sexuality, trauma, abuse, self - harm and addiction.
One of my strength is in my ability to create a safe, supportive and creative space for the client. This is underpinned by my strong belief in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in supporting the client to do their personal work and self-enquiry. I believe that each person is unique and has the capacity to achieve their potential for true contact and awareness both with themselves and in their relationship with others.
