About Counselling

The terms Counselling and Psychotherapy are often used interchangeably. Clients often come to counselling to seek support with a current crisis that is causing them anguish and distress. The therapist offers a safe, respectful, non-judgemental space to allow the client to express the sometimes overwhelming emotions they may be experiencing.

Psychotherapy can be considered as a process whereby, through the therapeutic relationship, the client can explore some of their unconscious processes and defences. Clients gradually gain insight into how their past may be affecting them in their present relationships. Psychotherapy helps us get the most out of our lives by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness and working towards change.

Some of the issues I work with include:

  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Illness
  • Childhood issues
  • Sexuality
  • Trauma
  • Suicidal Issues

Each session lasts 1 hour and cost €50. I work out of Primary Care Psychotherapy Naas and also in Newbridge.
