Healing takes time,
and asking for help
is a courageous step.
I am an IACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with seven years of clinical experience.
In my work I put strong emphasis on providing clients with a safe space where they can explore and heal their issues.
I use person-centered, humanistic, CBT (cognitive behavioural) and psychodynamic approaches.
If you’re looking for help with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, bereavement, loss, LGBTQ+ issues, or navigating life transitions, I am here to help.
I am also qualified in therapeutic use of mindfulness. This approach can be incorporated into the sessions when needed or requested.
Prior to becoming a therapist I studied philosophy and religions which concluded with a PhD degree. This experience adds additional reflective angle to my therapeutic approach.
During sessions, you can expect a compassionate, non-judgmental, and collaborative environment. I will work with you to uncover the root causes of your challenges and develop an effective way forward.
My Therapeutic Approach
Everything starts with a first step
1. Make the decision
2. Book an appointment
3. Commit to work
4. Make progress
Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.

Where are you located?
I work from two professional, confidential and centrally located places: 18 Dame St, Dublin 2, D02 XF59 and 3 Main St. Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 D15 DXV1. I also provide online sessions for those who cannot attend appointments in person. See the directions under this LINK
How long are the sessions?
Sessions are 50 minutes long.
How many sessions do I need?
First I invite you for an initial session that will have a form of a consultation. During that time we will have an opportunity to explore what brings you to therapy, what would you like to get out of our sessions, and how we can work together. We can either decide on set number of sessions, or leave the therapy open. In the second instance you decide when is the best time for you to finish.
What is your fee?
My fee is €75 per session.
How can I arrange a session?
How does the first session look like?
The first session is an opportunity to discuss what brings you here, what you'd like to get out of our sessions and what areas of your life you'd like to work on. Every person is unique and requires individual approach. During our session we will have a chance to explore what could work best for you.
I have private insurance. Can I use it to cover the cost of the sessions?
It depends on the insurance plan that you have. The best is to contact your insurer and ask if your plan covers counselling or psychotherapy.
How often do I need to attend sessions?
Attending your sessions weekly is a good practice and helps to bring best results. We can discuss it further during the first session.
