About me and my therapy practice

Seeking a counsellor can be a daunting process. Maybe you’re having trouble maintaining nourishing connections or have experienced a recent loss or trauma. Being accepted within a warm and non-judgemental relationship, is at the heart of how I work. I can help you to find your own insights and strengths, enabling you to move towards more choice. 

I recognize and value the importance of feeling met in a safe and trusting relationship. Having a sense of safeness within the relationship, between us, is at the core of effective therapy. Starting by being easy and gentle with ourselves, caring for and being able to understand ourselves more fully, can pave the way for more fulfilment in daily life.

Practice description

I can help with many challenges. Although, I’ve specific training and experience working with trauma and sexual abuse. I work supportively and sensitively, at a pace, led by you, cultivating a mindful and inquisitive approach, along the way. Your confidentiality is my priority.

I recognize there are painful and difficult times throughout our lifespan, when we all need a kind and supportive relationship, to go beyond, and to deepen our own understanding. I view the relational process as a living, breathing thing, and when there’s no need for it to grow in a particular direction, we have more freedom.

Originally from Ireland, I’ve lived here in the UK for 20+yrs now. Having previously lived in North America and the Middle East, it is from my own life experience, living in different countries, that I’m able to connect with a wide range of diverse and interesting people.

In addition to my private work, I’m a registered therapist for Sporting Chance, supporting ex-professional sportsmen and women throughout the UK and for SIX MHS (Mental Health Solutions).
