Trauma Informed Psychotherapy for adults and young people

Perinatal Psychotherapy for those of the road to parenthood, parents and infants.

About Me

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist, accredited with Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

I hold a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a Higher Diploma in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and a level 9 Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health.

I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Trauma informed Psychotherapy, and Parent-Infant mental health through the Anna Freud Centre in London.

I am a fully certified infant massage instructor and I regularly use this as a therapeutic tool in her work with parents and infants to support good relationships and bonding.

My approach

I work using an integrative framework which incorporates a range of therapeutic modalities to meet the needs of my clients.

I believe that therapy is most effective when my clients navigate their own pace and direction in the work.

My aim

My aim is to support clients to move forward through the internal and external challenges they are facing.

I focus on increased insight and self awareness of how they relate to themselves, others and the world around them.

How I work

I am a trauma informed Psychotherapist meaning I recognise the impact of experiences that threaten a person's felt sense of safety. I am mindful of this in every aspect of my work with clients.

Using a somatic approach I will often encourage my clients to gently move away from the chaos of their thoughts and notice what is happening in their body.

Experience and Areas of Interest

I enjoy working with a wide range of issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and trauma. As a mum of three myself I have a particular interest working with perinatal mental health, postnatal depression, traumatic births and anxiety. I have extensive experience working with parents on all aspects of parenthood and relationships.

Alongside my private practice I work for a national organisation providing psychotherapy to survivors of childhood sexual abuse as well as teaching on a Masters programme in Psychotherapy.

My previous experience includes managing a team of psychotherapists at a low-cost community-based family therapy service. I also have experience working as a psychotherapist with children, young people and parents within school and community settings both in Ireland and the UK.

The process

Normally I meet my clients for an initial assessment session. This is an opportunity for you to meet with me and get a sense of whether I am the right therapist to support you. In this session I will also go through our agreement form and I will ask you some questions related to your history, experiences and goals for therapy.


I am practicing out of: 81 Upper Georges Street, Dunlaoighre, Co Dublin A99AT10.
