I offer a non-judgemental, compassionate, collaborative and confidential space in which to unpack what is happening for you. Everything in therapy happens in your own time. There is no issue too big or too small to bring to therapy.
I work from an integrative perspective, which means that I draw from several theories of psychotherapy to tailor our work to your needs and goals. The theories I draw most from include Person Centred therapy, Gestalt therapy, Choice Theory, Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Existential therapy. All of my work is trauma informed, as I have extensive training in trauma processing, particularly sexual trauma.
Issues I have worked with include but are not limited to:
Anxiety / Stress
PTSD / CPTSD
Lack of meaning in life
Entering into therapy is a brave step. Wherever you are on your journey, I can meet you there.
In your first session we'll get to know each other a little and have a look at what you want to get out of our work together. We will also go through any questions or concerns you might have. Sessions run for 50 minutes.
The most important aspect of therapy is the relationship you have with your therapist and that you click with them, so take your time to find the right therapist for you.
Rates are €60 per session. I operate a sliding scale - if sustaining the fee is a concern for you, we can talk about it in your first session. Please note there is a 48 hour cancellation charge.
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist in private practice in Monkstown, Co. Dublin, and Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
I have a diploma in Psychology from DBS, a diploma and a BA in Integrative Psychotherapy, both from IICP. I have further training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dissociation, Mindful Self-Compassion, trauma processing, EMDR therapy and narcissistic abuse.
I completed the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre’s therapist training course in sexual trauma in 2015, and the Womens' Aid's training in domestic abuse in 2013 and I have worked in addiction and domestic abuse settings. I work in accordance with the IACP code of ethics.
I also have a BA in Fine Art, and an MA in Journalism, which helps me have a wide perspective in my counselling work.
I have a special interest in trauma processing and recovery, namely sexual violence and domestic abuse. Helping people become better friends to themselves and live expansive lives beyond trauma is a great privilege for me.
