About me
I am committed to providing a competent and compassionate counselling service.  I believe that counselling and psychotherapy can affect change in an individual whether engaged in through crisis, seeking support and/or for personal development.
I was awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science with first class honours in Counselling and Psychotherapy validated by Middlesex University.  I also received a Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy from PCI College Ireland, gaining the professional qualification required to practise in Ireland.  These qualifications meet the criteria of the Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP) and the National Association for Pastoral Counselling & Psychotherapy (NAPCP).  I am currently a pre-accredited member of IACP.
As a professional member of the counselling and psychotherapy community I am also committed to the IACP continuing professional development (CPD) framework.  This is a process that allows practitioners to maintain, enhance and advance their professional knowledge and skills.  It contributes to lifelong learning and it also complements the ongoing supervision I attend which ensures my clinical work and professional standards are maintained.  Please see the IACP website for further details (http://www.irish-counselling.ie/index.php/cpdinformation ).

Counselling Process and Approach
I believe and subscribe to the humanistic approach of Person-Centred Psychotherapy as developed by theorist Carl Rogers.  This puts the individual’s needs and resourcefulness at the heart of the therapeutic relationship.
In practice I work as an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor.  This involves the exploration of several different themes of approach from interpersonal relations, the psychodynamic exploration of the unconscious and also from the exploration of the person’s family systems and environment.
I place emphasis on the exploration of the personal narratives which guide and underscore the person’s thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, and the context in which they live.  I believe in the promotion of a collaborative relationship.  One which seeks to find new and creative ways of understanding and coping with the symptoms and the underlying causes of the person’s difficulties.
I believe that it can be in the best interest of the client to work in tandem (where appropriate or required) with other professionals such as Psychiatrists, Family Doctors, Nutritionists, Holistic Therapists and other Health Professionals as we engage in counselling.
