I am an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with the Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP), offering general counselling / psychotherapy for grief, trauma, relationship issues, illness, uncovering the underlying causes of anxiety and depression in individual, couples and / or family sessions. I also provide parental coaching for parents of adolescents.
My approach to psychotherapy is integrative. This involves my training in psychodynamic and humanistic psychotherapy and my background in psychodrama. Besides I have a special interest in Bert Hellinger’s family or systemic constellations method and its application to individual setting. All of these modules have given me insights into our unique attitude towards our own psychological and emotional pain and how it shapes our choice of behaviours in our lives.
I am also trained in suicide first aid (ASIST), in safe somatic trauma therapy (stabilization) and in facilitating parents of adolescents groups.
