About

I began my training in counselling and psychotherapy at Cork Institute of Technology in 2009 graduating with a B.A. (Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2013.

 

Since completing my core training, I have completed a Certificate in Addiction Studies, a HSE programme run out of Arbour House, Cork. I have also engaged in several shorter trainings and workshops related to counselling and psychotherapy work.

 

In addition to my professional training, I am an accredited member of the IACP (The Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), and I work in accordance to their Code of Ethics.

 

My background is in law. I have worked as a solicitor in Cork since 2000. I specialised in court work, particularly in family law and so I have a strong understanding of the issues involved in relationship breakdown and an interest in working with people who are going through marital breakdown. I have a particular interest in pregnancy, infertility and infant loss work and have undertaken training and research in this area.

 

Counselling sessions generally take place weekly, and sessions last for 50 minutes. Together we can discuss and arrange a time that is convenient to meet at each week, and we would meet at this time as far as possible.

 

My fee per session is €50. I do have some limited low cost spaces available for people who are unemployed or experiencing financial difficulties. Remote therapy available on a case-by-case basis after some in-office sessions have occurred.
