Simply pick up the phone and I will help you find out.
I am an accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in the Basin Street Centre for Professional Counselling & Psychotherapy Services, Naas, Co. Kildare. I work with adolescents (16 and over) and adults on a one to one basis covering a wide range of issues.
While I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) often as a basis to structure my counselling and psychotherapy, I also draw from other theories, approaches and techniques and integrate these into the work to help my clients reach goals and work through issues.
I draw from other sources also including evolutionary psychology as a gateway of insight into human nature, thinking and the complexity of being human. Increasingly I also blend in mindfulness meditation and its insights to help ease stress, reduce anxiety and manage the journey through depression. With a decade of research now underpinning its efficacy in all these areas, it has the capacity to bring positive benefits to everyone’s life.
Nonetheless many studies show that one of the most important variables for a successful course of counselling and psychotherapy is the quality of the relationship between the client and therapist. So, at the end of the day, it’s important that you get a sense, even after the first phone call, that you can work with me.
I’m available to talk with you about what counselling and psychotherapy can help you with and, should you wish agree an initial interview session.
