Safe & Non-Judgemental Emotional and Psychological Support

emotional and psychological support

People seek counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of reasons. Whatever you are feeling – sadness, pain, anger, grief, confusion, overwhelm or just plain lost – seeking support is courageous and a sign of strength. The support of friends and family can often be enough but sometimes the help of an independent, skilled, and compassionate professional can help.

what i offer

I offer either face to face sessions in Rathmines, Dublin 6  phone or video sessions and outdoor / walk and talk sessions. 

I create a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space to support you to explore the challenges you are experiencing and start to heal, grow and live a fuller life at a pace that is appropriate for you.   

To help us decide whether we may be a good fit I offer, free of charge and with no obligation, an initial phone or video conversation for 20 minutes. If we decide to proceed we will agree a  ‘usual’ day and time for our sessions which typically last 50 minutes. Usually sessions are weekly but I do in some cases offer support on a fortnightly basis.

If we are unable to find a mutually convenient time or I feel I may not be the most appropriate person for you I will do my best to recommend another therapist.

What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably. Both relate to the confidential process of engaging with a professional to explore and start to heal from the challenges you are experiencing and make any relevant changes in your life. 

Counselling generally refers to working on an immediate, specific issue such as a bereavement, significant life change, stress or relationship issues and is usually a shorter-term process (8-20 sessions).

Psychotherapy generally explores deeper, longer-term issues that are affecting your life and the potential causes of those such as childhood experiences, long-term trauma or post-traumatic stress and engrained patterns of behaviour that are hard to change. It is generally a longer, open-ended process.
