Empathetic, Evidence-based Therapy
Do you ever feel too overwhelmed to deal with your problems?
In my psychotherapy practice I provide a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, compassionate and non-judgmental. We work together to explore and address the issues that are causing you distress. All therapies are tailored to your personal needs.

I have specialised training and expertise in working with Eating Disorders, including the Professional Diploma Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E) from Oxford University London.
Research indicates that over 60% of those who undergo CBT experience substantial improvements in anxiety symptoms. CBT teaches you skills to manage stress and anxiety for life.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is commonly regarded as the most effective psychological treatment for depression. Research shows CBT substantially reduces the risk of a depressive relapse.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) including exposure and response prevention (ERP) is recognised as first line therapy for young people and adults with mild to moderate OCD
People with Asperger’s tend to be logical thinkers and are frequently of above-average intelligence. This makes them suitable for a modified CBT model, with its emphasis on structure and problem-solving.
Healthy relationships with our family, friends, work colleagues and others are vital to our wellbeing. A difficult relationship with a significant person in our life can be managed with the right approach.
I am committed to providing compassionate, evidence- based treatment to adults and teenagers from 15 years to eighteen years.
My approach to therapy is mainly Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I also integrate other approaches and techniques that best suit the individual’s needs. Among these are Person-Centered, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness.
I am an accredited member of The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have over twenty years experience working as a mental health practitioner.
