Well, where do I begin? I grew up on a farm in the countryside, had a passion for music, art and animals. I first came to experience therapy at the age of 14, when I attended due to an eating disorder and depression. My first experience of therapy was a painful one due to a bad therapist, which could have really affected how I view the gift of therapy. However, my second experience of therapy was an extremely positive and powerful one. An experience that changed me and my life forever, one which ignited my dream of becoming a therapist one day. My attendance of therapy ensured I survived these times and I began to thrive.
I studied Psychology and Religion and Global Diversity at University College Cork and went on to do a masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy with the Irish College of Humanities and Applied Sciences. For two years after this I worked on receiving accreditation from my regulating body APCP (Association on Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Ireland). I was awarded accreditation as both counsellor and psychotherapist with APCP. I attend many different workshops throughout the year; in order to keep up with new evidence-based practice. I have also completed both Level 1 & 2 of Gottman’s Couples Therapy.
With my passion for therapy, I use what I find works best both from the point of view of the client and the therapist combined.
