Thank you for visiting my website. I appreciate how difficult it is to seek therapy and ask for help. These pages explain my approach and how we might work together.
I am a psychotherapist & counsellor in private practice in Nenagh, Co Tipperary. I offer individual psychotherapy and counselling for adults and adolescents struggling with life and role transitions, major life changes and other challenges.
People come to therapy for many reasons. Some feel stuck, overwhelmed, want help with a specific problem, or are in the midst of a life crisis. Others seek relief from anxiety, depression, and emotional distress.
We will work together in an atmosphere of safety and trust to explore, understand, and change your life.
I offer you a psycho-therapeutic method which is tailored to meet the needs for each adult and adolescent on an individual basis.
"Talk Therapy" can reduce emotional distress, lessen anxiety, and decrease depression.
Therapy encourages your personal growth and opens up new life possibilities.
By working together in an atmosphere of safety and trust, psychotherapy offers the chance to explore, understand, and change your life.
Our earliest life experiences and important relationships provide a model and have an influence for how we work and live our lives. Many times, we continue to apply old patterns to new situations, even when they no longer work or cause great pain. It's natural to keep doing what we know.

Successful therapy will give you the tools to understand yourself, deal with transitions, develop new coping mechanisms, and grow psychologically on your own. Effective therapy relieves suffering and promotes personal growth and change.
What is Counselling
Counselling is also known as talk therapy which takes place in a professional setting. It presents as a support in a secure and confidential setting for a client to look at their issues and feelings. They may be experiencing distressing events in their life such as work related, family related, general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction within their lives.
Some people feel isolated and have no one else to talk to, but even people with supportive family and friends can find it difficult to talk to them about feeling anxious or depressed. Or they may just find it easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist.
Areas of support
Self Esteem and Confidence
Suicide Ideation and Self Harm
Work place issues
It is based on the view that everyone has the capacity and desire for personal growth and change, given the right conditions. Rather than being seen as the expert and directing the therapy, the counsellor offers unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence to help the client develop and grow in their own way.
This takes techniques from the ‘personal growth movement’ to encourage clients to think about their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions. The emphasis is on self-development and achieving one’s highest potential rather than on dysfunctional behaviour.
CBT aims to help people become aware of when they make negative interpretations, and of behavioural patterns which reinforce the distorted thinking. Cognitive therapy helps people to develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving which aims to reduce their psychological distress.
This is includes distinct models of counselling and psychotherapy that are used together in a converging way rather than as separate approaches.
