A Different Approach
This type of therapy is designed to be short-term, client-focused and depends on the co-operation of the client themselves. The client is given the opportunity to look at issues from different angles, in a safe, supportive and completely confidential environment and is expected to partake in a pro-active manner in the process. Types of issues commonly dealt with relate to:
- Stress Management
- Sexual Orientation Issues
- Problem Drinking and / or Alcoholism
- Anxiety Disorder
- Effective Communication
- Coping with Interpersonal Conflict
Typically the therapy consists of approximately 6 to 8 sessions. The benefits of this therapy tend to become more apparent long after the sessions have ended when the client has a new perspective. Learn more

LIMITED RESUMPTION OF IN OFFICE SERVICE
I am respectfully asking everyone to adhere to the guidelines set out by the HSE
I have resumed Office appointments on a limited basis. Because of current restrictions and current premises limitations it is not possible, for now, to return to full in-office sessions
HOWEVER, for those who wish to do so I will be available for WhatsApp, Skype or other online / phone sessions with existing Clients
I am also happy to discuss sessions with prospective Clients.
Thank you for your understanding.
In view of the recent health crisis it appears that more and more people are perusing the prospect of Online Therapy. Over the coming months I will be updating my systems to accommodate this trend and expect to be transferring most of my work to an online platform over the next few months. This means ultimately more flexible and cost effective help for existing and new Clients.
I currently have limited upcoming office availability for new Clients but will endeavour to facilitate anyone interested in the service to the best of my ability. For the moment, I am available on Mondays:Tuesdays: Wednesdays: from 4pm until late and I have some Weekend appointments. Some online appointments are available also.
As a courtesy to myself and other clients seeking appointments, if you need to cancel or change an appointment I request a minimum of 48 hours notice to avoid a minimum fee of €50 being charged. Failure to show for an appointment will result in the full cost of a consultation being charged.
