About me

Being human and naturally having my own personal challenges in life, I realised that dealing with emotional and psychological issues requires self exploration,  more awareness, understanding, and self compassion and this is an ongoing process. I needed to address matters that had repeatedly affected me and with this came an improvement in my ability to manage emotional responses in difficult and sometimes very challenging situations. Wanting to learn more about the therapeutic process, I began my journey in IICP College in Dublin in 2013. I completed my Honours Bachelor Degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy in 2017 and have so far spent several years working in private practice providing therapy sessions for adult clients.

Areas which can be covered in counselling and psychotherapy include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, feeling lost and hopeless, bereavement, loss, work and job related concerns, family issues, overwhelming stress, loneliness, self harm, low self esteem, abuse, and relationship difficulties. My primary goal is that you feel listened to and supported whilst being able to explore matters that may be affecting your mental wellbeing. Counselling and psychotherapy provides a safe space to talk about and explore personal difficulties, with a view to helping you to resolve those difficulties over time.
