I work on a one to one basis in a non-judgemental, collaborative, emphatic way, encouraging and empowering my clients to develop their own self- awareness, self-belief, self-esteem and self-confidence, in order for them to live in a more positive and productive way, enabling them to deal with the ups and downs that life so frequently throws at us. This self- awareness and reflection enables clients to see more clearly the paths they want to take in life and enables them to have greater control over their own destiny.
I am passionate about my work and I consider it a privilege to be allowed be a part of a clients journey, toward a more self-fulfilled and self-actualised life, by helping them tap into their own unlimited potential.
I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy services to individual clients, couples and families with regard to a wide range of life issues.
Common issues include, lack of direction, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma, bullying, workplace difficulties, illness and sexuality.
People generally seek counselling when life becomes too difficult to cope with alone. Perhaps they feel hopelessness or worthlessness or are constantly overburdened stressed, angry or sad. People can attend because they are experiencing ongoing difficulties with feelings of panic, sadness or loss, depression, anxiety, bereavement and eating problems. Perhaps they find it difficult to cope with exams nerves, presentations or want to explore the many ways they can start living life better and more enjoyably.
I also deal with Parenting issues, youth and adolescent difficulties as well as with motivation and goal setting.
I am currently an accredited member with the APCP (Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists Ireland) and have been working in my own practice in Adare, Limerick since 2009. I also volunteer with the Bedford Family Project counselling families in distress.
