What is Counselling and Psychotherapy
Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision.
Therapists are professionally trained people who are skilled in listening and reflective skills enabling you to explore the issues that are affecting your life.
People enter counselling for several reasons. Everyone’s story is unique to them therefore It is important to know that there is no one type of therapy that suits everyone.
In my practice, my main priority is to work with you to develop and provide a safe comfortable confidential therapy service.
My goal is to work together with a client to create a counselling journey that is right for you in total confidence.
I believe the relationship between a client and their therapist is the cornerstone of what therapy is about. My approach values the whole person, mind, body, and soul, thoughts, feelings, and emotions. A relationship that is built on trust, honesty, and respect in a confidential space.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED ?
Each individual is different, so each client requires different amounts of sessions to resolve their issues. Each session is usually 50 mins in duration. Sessions are flexible and can be booked mon-sat including evenings.
The therapy session may be an individual or couple counselling and take place on a short-term or long term basis, weekly or fortnightly as decided during our first consultation. I offer a reduced rate for students, oaps, unemployed, frontline workers and those who may be struggling financially. A 48 hour cancellation policy applies. I also offer on-line phone or zoom sessions if required.
The aim of therapy is to help you become clearer about the extent and the effect of the issue so as to recognize possible solutions.
Confidentiality is maintained within the Ethical and Practice Guidelines of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). I also attend regular continuous professional development (CPD) and supervision which ensures that I am fully prepared to deliver my Therapy Services.
