NCP Accredited Counselor/Psychotherapist
Past experiences can haunt us and cause repetitive, destructive patterns which leave us stressed, unhappy or feeling empty. What would it be like to be able to let go of those emotions so that they no longer bother you? Whatever is troubling you we can work together to find the right decisions and solutions for you.
I’m an NCP (National Council of Psychotherapists) accredited Counselor/Psychotherapist. I have five years of clinical experience in Ireland and the UK helping a variety of people to make their lives more manageable and fulfilling. At the moment I’m working on a research Masters looking into the positive effects of particular body therapies such as EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique which works particularly well with video Skype but works without video too.
I trained in Integrative Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy which means I utilise many of the main types of therapy according to what I feel will work best for you. In saying that I do think of myself as being more humanistic than psychodynamic or behavioral – please don’t worry if you’ve never heard some of these terms, what it comes down to is that I see the relationship between you and I as the most important aspect of what we do.
Integrative therapy does not try to change the person, it seeks to recall all of the healthy, balanced parts of a person and re-integrate them into the functional self. I’m also trained in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and EFT which is a particularly gentle and effective technique for painful or traumatic memories.
I have experience in and work with a range of issues, some of which include: addictions, anxiety, bereavement/grief/loss, body image, childhood issues, depression, disability, eating disorders, family issues, gender issues, identity, life transitions, mental health, OCD, phobias, pain management, PDSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), relationships, self-harm, sexual orientation, sexual issues, stress and trauma as well as the many other things that life can throw at us.
